VOLTA EG Improves its Cooperation with RusHydro in Amur Region

VOLTA Engineering Group has been pronounced a winner of the tender for the right to replace the AIMS CEM and to establish the power consumption tracking system at the facilities of Zeyskaya Hydroelectric Station (Amur Region), branch of JSC RusHydro.

The equipment at Zeyskaya Hydroelectric Station is being upgraded under the programme for technical upgrade and reconstruction for 2013–2014 and energy conservation and energy efficiency programme of JSC RusHydro for 2010–2015. The cost of the work under the contract planned to be signed within a month is expected to be 23,576 million roubles.

According to the tender documentation, the project shall be completed before the end of June 2014. Its successful implementation will allow Zeyskaya Hydroelectric Station to execute efficient automated fiscal metering and operating control of electric energy and power consumption. It will ensure continuous monitoring, calculation of electric power balance at facilities and will result in reduction of energy losses.

By now, specialists of the companies incorporated into VOLTA Engineering Group have formed a high level of expertise in ASPCA introduction at the facilities of Federal Grid Company of Unified Energy System and MRSK Holding. As for cooperation with JSC RusHydro, the similar project is presently being implemented at Zagorskaya Hydroelectric Station-2 (Moscow Region).

"The project at Zeyskaya Hydroelectric Station is a kind of challenge for us, at least in terms of territorial remoteness of the facility," Viktor Yurov, Business Development Director of VOLTA Engineering Group, comments results of the tender. "However, it is not the first our project of this kind. It should be noted that successful transfer of technical solutions worked out at the retail electricity market, to the wholesale market proves the approach of VOLTA EG to be systematic and the ASPCA introduction itself to be a separate activity for generation which we are planning to expand in the future."
