Investment Memorandum

Construction of a 100 MW
gas power plant in Eastern Siberia:

Profitable energy source for data-center applications, with the ability to sell power to the mains electricity grid

Ability to hedge the power cost at a low level for 25 years

Cold climate, average early temperature of −3°C. Reduced energy usage to cool down computing equipment

Broadband Internet access from local telecom providers, 200 Mbit/s bandwidth

Year-round logistical connectivity to Irkutsk by car or truck

Building Location

The suggested building location of the power plant is in Ust-Kut rayon (county) of Irkutsk oblast (province) of Russia, some 1000 kilometers away from the nearest large city, Irkutsk.
The natural gas (including APG – associated petroleum gas) will be supplied by a local company, partially owned by international investors (USA, Japan), one of the biggest independent producers of hydrocarbon fuels in Russia. The company's confirmed gas reserves are estimated at 200 bln. cubic meters.

Project Objectives

Creating the cheapest source of energy for data-centers

Creating independent power generation capacity

Selling power to various customers

Reliability and safety of the power source

Caring for the environment

Implementation of the Project


Construction of a local gas power generation facility intended for gas-turbine engines working in power-generation mode using natural gas or associated petroleum gas (APG) as fuel.


The main gas power generation complex will be a gas turbine power plant with the total output capacity of 100 MW, consisting of 4 EGES-25 (ЭГЭС-25) gas-turbine power generation installations.
