The electricity output by generating enterprises of the Company including Murmanskaya CHPP in 2011 amounted to 28,362.1 million kW/h, which is a 4.4% increase compared to 2010. CHPPs’ output increased by 14.8% (16,339.4 million kW/h as compared to 14,238.9 million kW/h in 2010).  Due to a relatively low water content in the Republic of Karelia and Leningrad Oblast the HEPPs’ output reduced by 7% (12,022.7 million kW/h as compared to 12,922.9 million kW/h in 2010).

Increase of the electricity output amounted to about 2.5% in the 4th quarter of 2011. The total output of new generating units at Yuzhnaya and Pervomayskaya CHPPs in 2011 amounted to 3,345 million kW/h (11.8% of the total output), which provided for a significant increase of the Company’s total output.

The dynamics of power production structure has affected the values of the installed capacity - use efficiency ratio (ICUR). In 2011, ICUER at TGC-1 CHPPs increased by 0.6 p.p., up to 48.5%, and at HEPPs, reduced by 3.5 p.p. down to 47.4%. For the Company as a whole, this ratio amounted to 48.0%.

Due to the commissioning of new energy-efficient capacities and implementation of the investment program, by the results of 2011, the specific consumption of conventional fuel per energy output reduced by 3.2%.

The heat output including that of Murmanskaya CHPP amounted to 26,052.9 thousand GCal, which is a 9.6% reduction as compared to the same rate in 2010, in particular, 7,783.1 thousand GCal in the 4th quarter (-19.7%). The heat output reduction is due to higher ambient air temperatures in regions of the Company’s presence. In particular, the average temperature in the heating season of 2011 was 2.9оС higher than the same rate in 2010.
