"Roskosmos" and "RAO ES of the East" found a common language on the issue of energy supply of the "Eastern"

On payment for power supply to the space center "Vostochny" Roskosmos agreed with the Far Eastern Energy Company (DEK, is part of the "RAO ES of the East"), writes Kommersant "

Как Already reported The EastRussia Information Agency, the power center of the Vostochny cosmodrome (Amur Region), was excluded from the power supply contract due to the completion of work, and notified Far Eastern Energy Company (DEC, part of RAO ES East) holding company about this.

At the moment, DEC has partially settled problems with the payment of electricity supplies to the Vostochny space center. As reported by "Kommersant" in the "RAO ES of the East", 1 August DEK and FSUE "Center for the operation of ground-based space infrastructure" (TsENKI) entered into an agreement for the supply of electricity.

In late July, DEC reported: the supply of electricity to Vostochny may be limited due to the fault of the general contractor for the construction of Dalspetsstroy, which terminated the contract with the power industry "in connection with the completion of work."

As a result, the DEC was left without a buyer: Roskosmos has not yet accepted the constructed and unfinished cosmodrome facilities from the general contractor and the power supply contract with TsENKI (FSUE should take East to its balance) could not be concluded. In Dalspetsstroy, in response to claims, DEC stated that the main substation of the cosmodrome was built and adopted on December 30 on 2015, and therefore the general contractor excluded it from the electricity supply contract. "Dalspetsstroy" considered that now the contract with Roskosmos should be concluded by the customer. But "this issue was not resolved by the customer," the company said, and in fact for half the year Dalspetsstroy paid for energy (about 15 million rubles per month). In “Dalspetsstroy” they assured that “exclusion of a substation from the contract will not affect the pace of work”, the construction will be continued through temporary energy supply networks.

The construction of the East, which should replace Russia’s Baikonur, in recent years has been accompanied by loud scandals due to non-compliance with deadlines and estimates. As a result, at the first launch from the Soyuz-2.1 cosmodrome 28 of April, only the “launch minimum” - 11 objects was activated. The general contractor and officials demanded to catch up with the deadlines, but many objects have not yet been handed over to the customer.

In June, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin announced that the first stage of the cosmodrome (20 objects) should be commissioned before October 31.

“Kommersant” commented on CENKI: it was possible to conclude an agreement with DEK on the basis of commissioning the Eastern power supply system (the first stage of the first stage). “On the basis of the contract concluded between Roskosmos and FSUE TsENKI, an agreement was signed between TsENKI and DEC,” Deputy Director General of TsENKI on the construction and operation of infrastructure Alexey Borodin told Kommersant. According to him, the contract allows us to provide electricity for safe storage of rocket fuel components, process equipment, as well as further construction of facilities. The consumption volume under the contract is 1 mln kWh per month, specified at FSUE (around 1,4 MW of capacity). But this is two orders of magnitude less than the amount of energy supplies reserved for the spaceport. The external power supply of Vostochny through the substation "Ledyanaya" (220 kV, also feeds the nearest settlements and the infrastructure of Russian Railways) is provided by the Federal Grid Company. It reported that now for power grid facilities of the East and the city of Tsiolkovsky it is possible to issue power up to 120,9 MW.
