Bad weather calls off launch of power plant

The solemn opening ceremony at Noyabrskaya combined cycle power plant had to be cancelled because of bad weather today.

A strong wind forced the airplane with Russia’s Regional Development Minister Viktor Basargin (the event’s special guest) on board land in Surgut. The plane with other ceremony participants, including a number of reporters, which took off in Yekaterinburg, had to perform a landing in Tyumen and wait for over five hours for a permission to operate the flight. In the end, it was decided that the event should be canceled altogether and that all the quests invited should travel back home.

It is still unclear at the moment when the plant will actually be launched.

The power plant was put up by InterTechElectro-New Generation Group.
