ROSATOM and Delo Group switch port terminals in Novorossiysk to green wind power

Moscow, April 13 - Neftegaz.RU. Today, Delo Group, the largest transport and logistics holding in Russia, and Atomenergoprom, a company consolidating ROSATOM civil assets, signed an agreement for joint actions to promote switching of logistics terminals to low-carbon green energy sources.

The agreement was signed by CEO of Delo Management Company Igor Yakovenko and Head of Business Development of ROSATOM Ekaterina Lyakhova.
One of the 1st steps to implement this agreement provides for the supply of electricity generated from wind energy to the largest terminals in the Azov-Black Sea region of Russia:
  • NUTEP Container Terminal
  • KSK Grain Terminal in Novorossiysk (both are a part of DeloPorts)
Atomenergopromsbyt (part of NovaWind, the wind energy division of Rosatom) acted as a partner in the new project.
KSK and NUTEP became the 1st large port infrastructure facilities in Russia to announce a switch to renewable energy.
According to the agreement, from January 1, 2022, the terminals will completely switch to wind-generated electricity.

Ekaterina Lyakhova said:
  • Currently, more and more companies are choosing the path to sustainable business development
  • In many ways, this becomes the key to competitiveness and long-term commercial success
  • And I hope that today's agreement is only the 1st step towards the switch of enterprises in the Russian logistics industry to low-carbon energy sources
The annual handling capacity of NUTEP is 700 000 TEUs, the container turnover of the terminal in 2020 reached 487 000 TEUs.
The share of NUTEP in the container turnover of the Azov-Black Sea basin is 61%, in Russia – 9%.
The terminal's customers include the largest international lines.

The handling capacity of the KSK grain terminal is 6 million tons per year (after the reconstruction is completed in 2021 – up to 7 million tons).
The share of KSK in Russian grain exports in 2020 was 12%.

Igor Yakovenko commented on the signed agreement as follows:
  • The green port project at DeloPorts enterprises is a pilot project, but long-term one
  • The NUTEP and KSK terminals are the most advanced in the South of Russia
  • to update them the Group is implementing a large-scale investment program aimed at expanding capacity and purchasing the latest equipment
The green port project will enable the use of electricity generated from low-carbon green energy sources to facilitate exports from Russia with minimal CO2 emissions, which, in turn, will affect the reduction in NUTEP and KSK's estimate indicators in reporting on indirect greenhouse gas emissions and other indirect carbon emissions for their customers.

Depending on the methodology adopted by the European Union, the indicators could reduce the carbon tax on exports to the EU for Russian exporters.
According to NovaWind, the potential reduction in CO2 emissions due to NUTEP and KSK switching to wind energy will amount to 6.8 and 5.7 thousand tons of CO2 per year, respectively.
