The paradox of Kazakhstan is that being one of the global leaders in explored uranium reserves, the country has no domestic nuclear power plant. However, if we go back in time, it is worth to say that the world’s first commercial fast reactor was manufactured in Kazakhstan. And in the long view, there is promising background for development of domestic nuclear power industry.
Is it possible to increase productivity without increasing power consumption? How to use rationally heat produced in the production process? Is it possible to reduce heating costs for administrative offices without compromising comfort? Is it necessary to create own commercial power park for economy?
Lately, much more interest has been sparked in 35 kV substations. Due to growing capacity of electric power networks, they replace 10 kV substations more and more often. Our experts have described the most popular types of package transformer substations, basic equipment selection principles, and other market trends.
North-West region of Russia as a whole is considered to be energy deficient, and aims to develop alternative sources of energy such as wind farms in the Kaliningrad region, and radical solutions of the issues of deficit by building nuclear power plants, for example, NPP-2 in the Leningrad region.
As the result of market reform we ought to have marketable power sales. it has to be a highly competitive segment of the power system. Ideal has not been reached. Today, in the regions 60-90% of electricity comes to retail consumers through guaranteeing suppliers (GS). The logic embodied in the reform, the proportion of GS in the market should be gradually reduced, and the proportion of independent sales - to rise. Until recently this process, albeit slowly, but go on. Now, however, we can see the prerequisites for turning in the direction of the market monopolization.
Most of the mineral deposits which are being operated now in Russia, has been explored decades ago. The cost of extracting raw materials from them increases, as well as the relevance of search, exploration and detailed exploration of new deposits.

The advantages of galvanic protection of pipelines and reservoirs: ease of installation, efficiency, profitability, independence from the current source, the possibility of local customization. As a result, a useful metal construction serves long, and corrosion destroys an inexpensive renewed protector.
The market transformers has enormous potential. But the real growth will begin not earlier than in one year. In this difficult period producer must not only endure, but learn new technologies and models. Otherwise, you will have a chance not to keep up with the springing up market.
Sverdlovsk Region has always been and remains to be the energy surplus region. With total installed capacity of regional objects generation is 9000 MW, electrical load of Sverdlovsk powersystem does not exceed 7000 MW. But long-term prospects of growth of energy consumption by enterprises of ferrous and nonferrous metallurgy, builders, utilities require advanced development of generation and networks. The largest investment projects are in this sphere – construction of reactor BN-800 on the Beloyarsk atomic power station and PGU-410 MW with the turbine of 4-th generation on Sredneuralskaya TPP.
