RusHydro announced opening of Sakhalinskaya GRES-2 on Sakhalin Island. The modern 120 MW power plant with long-run annual output of 840 mn kWh and will replace the obsolete Sakhalinskaya GRES scheduled for decommissioning. The new plant successfully passed the comprehensive tests and is ready for the Autumn-Winter season. The equipment for the plant was manufactured in Russia: the steam turbines by Urals Turbine Works, generators by ELSIB and boiler units by Power Machines.

The plant’s main equipment includes two turbine units and two boiler units. Unique feature of the plant is a 65-meters dry cooling tower. Unlike regular cooling towers, where substantial part of water evaporates into atmosphere, this cooling tower excludes any losses of water. All facilities and equipment of the plant are designed to withstand harsh natural conditions of Sakhalin Island, such as risk of earthquakes with magnitude up to 9 and strong typhoons.

Construction of Sakhalinskaya GRES-2 began in 2015 as a greenfield project on the Western coast of the island, near the town of Ilyinskoye.
