Russia’s DeloPorts starts using renewable energy

Novorossiysk, Russia (PortSEurope) January 11, 2022 – Since January 2022 DeloPorts, part of the Delo Group, has started using electricity generated at wind farms on the KSK and NUTEP terminals. DeloPorts is a stevedoring holding that consolidates the assets of Delo Group at the Novorossiysk Sea Port, comprising NUTEP container terminal, KSK grain terminal and Delo service company and towing operator. The provider of the green
electricity is Atomenergopromsbyt, part of NovaWind, the wind energy division of Rosatom. KSK and NUTEP are the first large port infrastructure facilities in Russia to announce the transition to the use of renewable energy. According to NovaWind, the potential annual reduction in CO2 emissions due to the transition to the use of wind energy at NUTEP and KSK is 6,800 and 5,700 tons of CO2 respectively (compared to traditional sources of electrical energy on natural gas). “On January 1, 2022, our terminals switched to using electricity generated from wind. The continued development of the “Green Port” project is especially important considering our further plans for modernization of our terminals – their efficiency will increase and the burden on the environment will decrease. This approach complies with the ESG guidelines implemented today by the Delo Group. We are grateful to our partners at Rosatom State Corporation for their help and assistance in this environmental project”, said Igor Yakovenko, CEO of DeloPorts. “Rosatom is consistently implementing a strategy to produce low-carbon energy based on nuclear and wind generation. NovaWind facilitates reducing the carbon footprint in the Russian energy sector and provides partners with additional tools to achieve sustainable development goals. So I hope that this year even more companies will choose a transition to reducing their carbon footprint in the production of goods and services using electricity generated from renewable energy sources”, said Grigoriy Nazarov, Deputy General Director for Development and International Business of NovaWind JSC.
