RAO "UES of Russia" and Delovaya Rossiya will create a project group to
develop power-plant industry in Russia
Moscow. 20 June 2008. RAO "UES of Russia" and the all-Russia business
association Delovaya Rossiya will create a special project group to develop Russian
power-plant industry. The decision was made based on results of a meeting dedicated to the
current situation and perspectives of the power-plant industry, attended by Chairman of
the Management Board of RAO "UES of Russia" Anatoly Chubais and Chairman of
Delovaya Rossiya Boris Titov.
The power-plant industry is one of the most promising sectors of the Russian economy
and it can become one of the key drivers of its competitive power improvement. Currently
the industry is facing new challenges in connection with the large-scale investment
processes in the Russian electricity industry and the entrance of foreign manufactures of
power-plant equipment to the Russian market.
The functions of the project group will include preparation of proposals regarding
state support of the power-plant industry and measures aimed at expansion of cooperation
between Russian and foreign power-plant manufacturers.
RAO "UES of Russia" and Delovaya Rossiya invite other interested parties to
participate in work and financing of the project group.
