JSC Dalur began operate a new power supply scheme
JSC Dalur (part of ARMZ Uranium Holding Co.,/ Rosatom State Corporation) successfully implemented and began operate a new power supply scheme which made it possible for the company to solve a number of infrastructure problems and to get significant savings.
In May, in last year, in close proximity to the JSC Dalur production sites, a low-power 4 MW power center was installed which cover 100% of the company's needs in electric power. For comparison, the power center capacity will be enough to provide electric power supply to 9 thousand private houses. According to the contract, all expenses related to the construction, commissioning and exploitation of the generator are borne by the investor's company. The main advantage of this scheme is reduction of final electric power price by almost 11% relative to the market price, mainly due to a significant reduction of the network component of the tariff and losses minimizing.
In addition, the power center proximity to the consumer ensures mutually beneficial usage of the cooling liquid used in the power plant. The liquid enters the Dalur boiler house and provides heat recovery which reduces gas consumption by 95%. This means that both heat and hot water supplied to the enterprise are much cheaper as well.
Total economic effect without any investments from Dalur is amounted to 6.2 million rubles in 2017, and in 2018-2019 it is expected at the level of 41.5 million rubles.
"This scheme is very profitable for both consumers and investors. In conditions of instability in the uranium market, it gives us significant savings. And investor might receive a net profit after 3 -5 years payback period of the project "- said Sergey Lygalov, Chief power engineer of JSC" Dalur ".
"Electric power market is very specific; today we live in conditions of monopoly prices for electric power. The power center in Dalur is an atypical example of competition for a major customer. This practice is very rear in Russia and this is the first case in the history of Rosatom,” stressed Fyodor Ushakov, Project Manager at ARMZ Uranium holding
