Surgutskaya GRES-2 has increased its electricity output by 29% in relation to the first quarter of 2015.

Berezovskaya GRES has also increased its generation by 8%. The electric power production of Shaturskaya GRES, Yaivinskaya GRES, and Smolenskaya GRES has decreased due to the changes of schedules of maintenance and downtimes of generating equipment placed on cold reserves.
