Development of big energy in Yamal is fulfilled exclusively at the expenses of private investments.
This information was given by the director of the department on tariff policy, energy, housing and communal complex of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug Mikhail Gilyov in Salekhard to journalists.
According to his words, the government of Yamal plans to give state guarantees for fulfillment of the commercial project on building of the thermal power station «Polyarnaya». Czech Export Bank became one of the basic creditors on building of the power station.

Now, when the sanctions were imposed against Russia, the Czech partners do not delay their plans but even increase their activity. And the task of the region is to create favorable conditions for business, which would invest funds to fulfillment of projects strategically important for the region, including formation of reliable energy system.
According to the words of Mikhail Gilyov, the region scrutinizes available instruments for the guarantee – these are opportunities of tax cuts within input of the object to operation and return of credits to investors – before input.

Owing to its location, the power station is called to become a key link in development of energy system of the region.
