Power producer in key industrial regions

Russia is one of Uniper’s most important markets. Our core activities in the world’s fourth largest energy market are power generation and sales, and the import of natural gas to Europe via long-term supply contracts.

Launched in 2007, Uniper’s new-build program has played an important role in modernizing Russia’s power sector. Our portfolio consists of five efficient gas- and coal-fired power stations located in several key industrial regions: Central Russia, Ural, and Western Siberia. Our significant investments of recent years have been aimed at making Russia's electricity supply more reliable, efficient, and climate friendly. Today, our power plants provide about 5 percent of the country’s total energy needs.

Our generation business in Russia operates under the name Unipro. Here you can find more information (in English and Russian):
