Renewable Energy Development in the Russian Far East

V International Conference, June 22-24, Yakutsk

Japanese NEDO will teach Russian engineers to operate wind power plants

The Japanese government organization NEDO will assist in training of the personnel for the further operation of wind turbine equipment in the Far East. It is expected that in April 2017, Russian engineers of the RusHydro group of companies will undergo the appropriate internship in Japan. An agreement on this was reached at the joint Japanese–Russian seminar in Vladivostok.
In 2015, RusHydro Holding, NEDO and the government of Kamchatka Krai, together with Japanese companies Komaihaltec, Fuji Electric and Mitsui & Co., Ltd. commissioned a wind power complex in Ust-Kamchatsk. During the NEDO seminar, the Japanese partners informed participants on the results of the project in Kamchatka Krai. In turn, RusHydro Holding reported on further plans to introduce wind generation systems in the Far East, as well as on the methods of operating the wind farm. One of the next joint projects is the creation of a microgrid system in the village of Tiksi, the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), using wind turbines specially designed for arctic conditions with systems for reacting to current energy requirements and a diesel station. The corresponding declaration of intent on cooperation for the implementation of wind generation systems in the Far East of Russia (including Tiksi) in December 2016 was signed by NEDO, the government of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) and RusHydro Holding.

Since NEDO and RusHydro plan to build RES facilities in the Far East in the future, they will require trained personnel to operate them. So an agreement was reached to conduct training for Russian engineers in Japan.

On the part of Japan, the seminar was attended by: NEDO, Consul General of Japan in Vladivostok Mr. Kasai, Agency for Natural Resources and Energy at Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan, as well as companies Komaihaltec, Fuji Electric and Mitsui & Co., Ltd.
