SIMFEROPOL, March 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Crimea’s government is planning to modernise the thermal power plant of its capital, Simferopol, to guarantee up to half the region’s energy requirements and free it from dependence on supplies from Ukraine.
First Deputy Prime Minister Rustam Temirgaliev told Rossiya-24 television channel on Tuesday that a programme to expand power generation could be completed within two years. This would increase output from the gas- and oil-powered generator from current installed capacity of 68 Megawatt to 300 Megawatt.
Russia's government plans to lay a cable connecting the newly-adopted Russian region with Russia’s unified energy system.
