As we already reported, the National Commission of Regulation of Power Industry (NCRPI) raised a tariff for the Energoatom company on purchase of the electric power necessary for filling of a reservoir of Tashlyksky hydroheat-sink power plant almost on a half.
In this regard the National nuclear power generation company "Energoatom" sounded the alarm. On the official site of the company the following statement is published:
"Such decision (NKRE) is explained by that according to instructions of dispatchers of the Ukrenergo company electric power purchase for water pumping in an alluvial mode for filling of the top reservoir of Tashlyksky pumped storage power plant was sometimes carried out not to time of night failures of a power supply system of Ukraine, and during semi-peak and peak loadings. At the same time, according to NAEK "Energoatom", it is a question only of isolated cases.
The solution of NKRE on increase of a tariff for purchase of the electric power will lead to unprofitable work of Tashlyksky pumped storage power plant. For prevention of damage of NAEK "Energoatom" already I prepared the letter for NKRE in which asks to reconsider a tariff for holiday of the electric power made by Tashlyksky pumped storage power plant and Aleksandrovsky hydroelectric power station for 2009 for the purpose of the accounting of expenses for purchase of the electric power on a new tariff. Also the company prepared the letter for "Ukrenergo" and GP "Power market" with a request for prevention of operation of hydrounits of Tashlyksky pumped storage power plant in a pump mode not at night days.
