SIMFEROPOL, March 24. /ITAR-TASS/. First Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Republic of Crimea Rustam Temirgaliev said that energy supply situation on the peninsula does not pose a serious threat.
“There are no serious threats over Crimea’s energy supply today,” he told reporters.
In his words, republican authorities take current situation over energy supply restriction as Ukraine’s blackmail.
Temirgaliev noted that Ukraine had informed Crimean authorities on repair being made on one of three power lines that deliver power supplies to the peninsula. The first deputy prime minister added that Ukraine had planned to begin maintenance works at two other power lines soon.
He noted this alleged repair as Ukraine’s blackmail in Crimea. Meanwhile, he pledged that “initiators of repairs will have opposite effect in fact, as Crimean residents will consolidate even closer.”
Average daily power consumption on the peninsula makes 630 milliwatt and Crimean power output stands at 240 milliwatt, Temirgaliev said. The governmental official noted that 900 mobile power generating units had already been placed. Nine hydropower facilities are also planned to mount after delivery from the Russian Black Sea resort city of Sochi. So, electric power deficit will make around 50 milliwatt. Designing of two combined-cycle electric generating plants was already launched. Their construction will take 2.5 years.
