Polyus extends energy agreement with RusHydro

 

PJSC Polyus (LSE, MOEX: PLZL) ("Polyus", the "Company") announces extension of an agreement for the supply of electricity generated by PJSC RusHydro, a major Russian hydroelectricity supplier.

Under the terms of the agreement, approximately 1.5 billion kWh of energy will be supplied to the Company's assets in 2022. As a result, 100% of the energy demand of Polyus' assets located in Krasnoyarsk Territory and Irkutsk Region will be directly met by hydropower.

In early 2021, as previously announced, a one-year agreement to supply renewable electricity from the Sayano-Shushenskaya HPP to Polyus' Krasnoyarsk Business Unit (Olimpiada and Blagodatnoye) was signed. As a result, the level of electricity demand of the Company's operating assets met by renewable sources reached about 90%.
