Windmill powering base station in Karelia, Russia.

In our continuous efforts to improve operating efficiency, MTS is increasingly looking towards alternative solutions to minimize energy consumption. In the coming months, MTS will install pilot base stations in the Crimea peninsula in the Southern Ukraine that will be powered by environmentally friendly wind generators. We have purchased wind turbines from the US-based Bergey Windpower and have already begun the deployment.

In line with our reputation for innovation, MTS is the first operator in Ukraine to explore the potential of energy solutions friendly to the environment. The first base stations will be installed in Crimea and later in the Western Ukraine, as strong winds in these regions are present throughout the year. Such alternative energy solutions allow us to economize spending as electricity costs rise or deploy network solutions in areas underserviced by a lack of power infrastructure.

We have long been exploring alternative energy sources in Russia. For instance, as pictured above, one of our base stations in the northern Karelia region is powered by wind, while in the southern Krasnodar region we have deployed solar cells. In the Moscow region, we are testing unique solutions with hydrogen power cells.
