China is considered an unprofitable customer for Russian electricity.
While the state "Inter RAO" and "RusHydro" are seriously counting on large supplies of electricity from Russia to China, En + holding of Oleg Deripaska, assessing the prospects of the business on the order of the government, does not consider China a consumer perspective for the next decade. En + called for electricity exports to South Korea and Japan, as well as the supply of energy-intensive products or services, more profitable. One option for the "indirect" exports may be the attraction of the Chinese investors into En + aluminum projects in Russia, as well as into the construction of data centers that are already ahead of the metallurgy on energy consumption.
KOWEPO might construct a terminal in Primorie
A new large project of the coal terminal with the capacity of 20 mln tons a year has been announced in Primorie. KOWEPO (Korea) wants to be an investor, which has earlier announced of its investment plans into the Russian energy sector. “Rosenginnering” group (Russia) will be its partner. The majority of the rest planned terminals in the Far East will be captive, and the idea of the coal port of “equal access” is supported by the Government of Russia. Analysts doubt KOWEPO will manage to occupy this layer.
