Moscow begins installing mobile power plants to plug supply gap

OAO Unified Energy, Russia's national power utility, installed the first of 10 mobile power generators planned for Moscow to help meet surging demand for electricity in Europe's largest city.

Two Pratt & Whitney generators with a combined capacity of 45 megawatts were turned on today, state-run Unified said in an e-mailed statement today. Another eight generators will give Moscow 225 megawatts of new capacity and help avoid blackouts during peak consumption, OAO Unified Energy said. Power use in the Russian capital surged 6% last year, versus the 4.2% national average. Pratt & Whitney is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (Bloomberg)
