Modernization of Bereza state district power plant proceeds on schedule

BELOOZERSK, 24 November (BelTA) – The realization of an investment project at the Bereza state district power plant proceeds on schedule, BelTA learned from Belarusian Energy Minister Viktor Karankevich on 24 November.

The Bereza state district power plant is one of the largest power plants in Belarus and the largest one in Brest Oblast. The heating energy it generates is used for heating nearby population centers. The electricity it generates is used inside Brest Oblast and is transmitted to other parts of the country. The operation of the Bereza state district power plant is becoming more important taking into account the work of the Belarusian nuclear power plant. Some power-generating installations (the so-called hot reserve) will remain operational all the time and will generate electricity for the oblast. Some other installations will be classified as cold reserve. They are needed to ensure stable operation of the power grid, including as part of peaking and backup energy sources taking into account various modes of operation of the Belarusian nuclear power plant, the energy minister said.

The energy minister and Brest Oblast Governor Yuri Shuleiko were made familiar with the operation of the Bereza state district power plant, the strategy on developing the installation, and with progress in realizing the investment project. An electric boiler and steam-generating boilers that burn gas and furnace oil are being installed at the Bereza state district power plant. A peaking and backup source of energy is being built.

The energy minister said: “Construction proceeds on schedule and is in the active phase. These facilities are supposed to be commissioned in 2022. The total installed capacity of peaking and backup energy sources of the Bereza state district power plant will be close to 250MW. Those are five fast-response units. The power grid's total capacity [of peaking and backup energy sources] will be 800MW.”
