POWER SUPPLY SYSTEM
There is a well-developed, reliable and fully up-to-date system of centralized power supplies operating in Moscow. The aggregate capacity of local power stations exceeds 12 gWt, and they generate over 30 billion kWth per year. This output fully satisfies the City’s power needs.
Ongoing updating of the system’s technical capabilities and infrastructure is financed and implemented by its owners.
ADDITIONAL POWER SOURCES
There is a unique country-wide Unified Power System operating in Russia, of which the Moscow power supply system is an integral part. This allows for the redistribution of regional power resources to meet the appropriate additional demand.
The generating capacities and the utility grid belong to a single owner and operator, JSC Mosenergo, of which the Moscow City Government is one of the major shareholders. In its turn, JSC Mosenergo is an affiliate of the state-controlled JSC Unified Power System.
RELIABILITY OF POWER SUPPLY TO THE GAMES
The existing power supply system of Moscow is quite capable to meet expected needs of the Olympic Games both in terms of load and reliability. It should be noted that the City’s power requirements in winter time, which the JSC Mosenergo system successfully meets, far exceed additional summer needs related to the staging of the Olympic Games.
HIGH QUALITY POWER
At the Games venues where specialized equipment is required, high quality, filtered power will be provided using stationary (or mobile, if appropriate) units of uninterrupted power supply.
