SUMZ completing the construction of mini-CHP

The Ural Mining and Metallurgical Company recently announced that SUMZ - "Stark Energy Yekaterinburg" - has begun the final phase of construction of the mini-CHP with a capacity of 21.5 MW.

Five gas units from German firm Motoren WerkeManheim with 4.3 MW each have been installed to date. The installation and commissioning of automation systems have also begun, as well as most of the work on the construction of the building energy facility and the administrative complex.

The total cost of the project is estimated to be $30 million.

"The main goal of the building is to ensure the security of SUMZ supply. Over the past year the company, due to various incidents and outages on external networks, has stalled more than 50 times. These facts not only cause significant economic damage, but also jeopardize the health of the people," Vladimir Nechitaylov, the director of UMMC Energy, said. "In addition, this project will reduce the cost of purchasing energy and heat supply of the plant and the city Revda."
