Moscow, December 10 - Neftegaz.RU.
VetroSGC (part of NovaWind, the ROSATOM division for wind power
) and SiburEnergoManagement signed an agreement to supply power to BIAXPLEN (part of SIBUR Holding) for BOPP film production facility in Novokuybyshevsk (Samara Region). Electricity will be supplied from the Adygeya Wind Farm.
The task for the supplier and the consumer at this stage is to test the work with wind power generation to find the optimal formats for cooperation and increase the volume of supplies.
“Currently, one of the significant factors giving a competitive edge to enterprises is their policy to minimize the use of carbon raw materials, including adherence to the policy throughout the chain of contractors and suppliers. NovaWind
helps reduce carbon footprint of production facilities and move towards sustainable development for as many companies as possible,” Aleksandr Korchagin, NovaWind CEO, noted.
“Reducing carbon footprint of manufactured products, which can be achieved by increasing the share of green energy, is a global trend today. SIBUR, being part of the global business community, is also actively involved in this process. In 2019, we launched a solar power plant at one of our facilities and plan to further increase the use of renewable energy sources both through our own generation and through direct contracts with green energy suppliers. This is an integral goal under SIBUR’s Sustainable Development Strategy until 2025 and it helps to reduce our impact on the climate,” Vladimir Tupikin, SIBUR
Energy and Resources Director, commented.
NovaWind implementing the general strategy of the State Corporation for low-carbon energy production based on atomic and wind power. In total, enterprises within NovaWind will have to create wind farms with a total capacity of 1.2 GW by 2024.
