“I congratulate you all on commissioning the Adler TPP and bringing it to the design capacity. And it is clear that I mean those who live in Sochi, at first place. Of course, we need to get ready for the Olympic Games, but they will pass, while the TPP will stay active and generate its high power output for the Krasnodar Territory. I wish you successful work and good wages that is quite important for everyone! I heartily congratulate you once again, because the new station certainly looks wonderful, it doesn’t even spoil the Olympic design. I hope it will fulfill all the tasks we’ve just mentioned. May success attend you!”

“At present, the Adler TPP is the most state-of-the-art and productive power generating facility in Sochi. A new energy heart of the city! The commissioning of the brand-new thermal power plant has significantly enhanced power supplies to Sochi, secured uninterrupted electricity and heat supplies to sports and tourist infrastructure in the Imereti Lowland as well as to facilities intended for developing Sochi as a mountain resort. At the same time, the Sochi district became considerably less dependent on the neighboring power networks – the Adler TPP output would cover over one-third of the projected peak demand during the sports competitions in 2014. In the future, there are plans for the Adler TPP to provide heat supplies to the Blinovo residential district of Sochi. Gazprom continues consistently reaching its strategic objective set for the power sector – bringing its efficiency indicators to the level of the world’s largest power companies.”

“Previously, all the power stations were located far away and electricity had to be supplied across the mountains. Now the Adler TPP will generate electricity in proximity to consumers and secure supplies in case of an emergency.”

“With the account for water shortage and conservation in the vicinity of the Adler TPP construction site, a closed-loop water supply system with dry ventilator cooling towers was chosen. Such a system does not lead to higher air humidity and environmental pollution.”

“Natural gas is the most eco-friendly fuel. It is most suitable for use in the resort area. Moreover, the new station project has been approved by environmental authorities. We are using the most up-to-date technologies and equipment. We will install cutting-edge gas machines manufactured in Italy and apply a state-of-the-art technique for rainwater cleaning at the new station. Due to the most advanced technologies, the station will do Sochi residents and environmental equilibrium no harm.”

“It would be difficult to supply all the Olympic ice arenas with heat without this power station. The station commissioning will ensure reliable energy supplies to the whole region. Sochi residents will have no energy shortfalls. The sanitary protection zone allows the inhabitants of the houses located in the vicinity of the station to live without either emission or noise problems.”
