Russia’s biggest wind farm, the Kochubeyevskaya wind power station in Stavropol region, has started supplying power and electricity capacity to the wholesale market, according to Novawind, the wind power division of Rosatom, Russia’s nuclear power authority.

The station has a capacity of 210 MW – made up of 84 wind turbine generators, each 150 metres high and with a capacity of 2.5 MW. Estimates put the station’s average annual output at 496 Kwh.

    Construction of the plant began in the autumn of 2019 and 65 % of the equipment is produced locally.

    The corporation had earlier completed construction of its first wind farm in nearby Adygea region.

    “We achieved a systemic level of project management and completed construction of the Kochubeyevskaya wind farm in two years owing to a number of factors — successful experience in wind farm construction and operation, the implementation of plans for mass production of wind turbine components and assembly units within Russia and an effective supply chain involving state enterprises,” Alexander Korchagin, NovaWind CEO, was quoted as saying on the company website.

    “Stavropol has become our key region.”

    Stavropol and Rostov regions have become the focal point of Rosatom’s wind projects. The corporation is proceeding with construction of three more wind farms. Bondarevskaya wind power station will start operations by the end of the year with a capacity of 120 MW, Karmalinovskaya station will have a capacity of 60 MW as will a third facility in Trunovsky district.

    Stavropol governor Vladimir Vladimirov has said the region wants to boost capacity to 1 GW. Seven wind power stations are planned by 2024 along with two solar power facilities.

    Stavropol’s ample supply of wind and sunshine could well make the region the stronghold of renewable energy in Russia. In total, by 2024, Rosatom will commission wind farms with a total capacity of approximately 1.2 GW.
