Environmental safety

Gazprom has adopted an environmental policy aimed at resource saving, environmental impact mitigation, and climate conservation.

The technologies and materials used for the construction of the Adler TPP comply with the highest national and international environmental standards.

Thanks to the advanced combined cycle gas turbine technology, the Adler TPP equipment demonstrates high efficiency (52 per cent), low fuel consumption, and air emission reduction averaging 30 per cent.

The cooling system of the Adler TPP was designed taking into account water shortages and conservation in the construction area. It is a closed-loop water supply system with dry ventilation cooling towers (cooled water circulates in a closed loop). Such a system does not cause higher air humidity and environmental pollution.

The primary fuel used by the Adler TPP is natural gas, the most eco-friendly energy source.

Thanks to the state-of-the-art engineering and architectural solutions, the plant blended into the unique natural landscape. Three hectares of the plant premises are covered with grass and tree alleys. The first alley of deodars, the tree species most suitable for the TPP area according to dendrologists, were planted on September 28, 2009, by Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, Alexander Tkachev, Governor of the Krasnodar Territory, and Anatoly Pakhomov, Mayor of Sochi, at the ceremony marking the start of the Adler TPP construction.
