A joint venture between Fortum and Energy Sales Company Vostok has participated in the auction for the status as guaranteeing electricity retail supplier of the Chelyabinsk region. Following the bankruptcy of the previous guaranteeing supplier Chelyabenergosbyt in June 2018, the role as guaranteeing supplier is temporarily being managed by the local grid company. The decision of awarding the status as guaranteeing electricity supplier is expected to be made in early April 2019 based on an auctioning process.
