NLMK Group, a global steel company, and Rosenergoatom (part of the Electric Power Division of Rosatom State Corporation), a leading Russian generation company, have signed a partnership agreement on low carbon power energy supplies.
The agreement covers various formats of cooperation, including bilateral electricity (capacity) contracts and joint demand response efforts (adjusting energy consumption depending on the load in the power system and electricity rates).
The agreement also covers the possibility of supplying low-carbon energy from Rosenergoatom power stations to Stoilensky’s new metals and mining facility being developed by NLMK Group.
Increasing the share of low-carbon energy sources is one of NLMK Group’s priority initiatives aimed at reducing the carbon intensity of production and greenhouse gas emissions. Nuclear energy is one of the main decarbonization tools, currently accounting for a third of global low-carbon electricity production.
The agreement continues the cooperation between the two companies in the field of low-carbon energy supply and demand response initiated in 2021. NPPs will be supplying over 3 billion kWh to NLMK Group sites in 2021.
Rosenergoatom is Rosatom’s biggest division. It is the largest generating company in Russia and the second largest in the world in terms of nuclear generating capacity. Rosenergoatom comprises 11 nuclear power plants in Russia, including a unique floating nuclear power plant (FNPP). In total, 38 power units with an installed capacity of 30.345 GW are operated at 11 NPPs in Russia.
Nuclear power currently covers over 19% of all electric power demand in the country. Rosenergoatom became the leader in electricity generation in the Russian Federation in 2019, with a record annual output of 208.7 billion kWh.
