Background on Plant

In December 2020 Abakanskaya CHPP was registered as a separate corporate entity and operates independently from it past owner JSC TGC-13.[1] Its ultimate parent remains SUEK.

The 4-unit 406MW plant is the largest power plant in Khakassia. Lignite coal is supplied Borodinsky coal mine.[2] The combined heat and power station supplies heat to 95% of consumers in the capital of Khakassia, Abakan, covers the need for electricity in the two largest cities of the republic - Abakan and Chernogorsk, and, in addition, supplies a number of enterprises in the city with industrial steam.

The Abakan CHP plant was initially constructed as a three-unit, 270-MW coal-fired power plant near Abakan, the capital of the autonomous Republic of Khakassia. In 2014, an additional 136-MW coal-fired unit was commissioned.[3][4] Construction lasted for 3 years and both Russian and foreign equipment was used. Electric filters were also installed.[4] In July 2012, the Eurasian Development Bank signed an agreement to provide a RUR 9 billion loan for the construction of unit 4.[5] The additional capacity allowed to close several old boiler plants in the city of Abakan.[6][2]

In March 2019 one of the plant's boilers caught fire. No deaths or injuries were reported.[7]

In 2021 the power plant generated 2,088 million kWh of electricity, in 2020 it was 1,954 million kWh.[8]


In December 2020 Unit 1 was selected for the COMMod program for updating energy generation equipment, where selected plants will receive capacity payments for 15 years.[9][10] Unit 1 will be fitted with new boilers and pipes and its capacity will be increased from 60 MW to 65 MW by 2026.[11][12]
