Project-level coal details

  • Coal source(s): Munaysky coal mine


The project to build a 660 MW coal-fired power plant in Altay region, consisting of two 330 MW blocks, was proposed around 2011.[1] Construction was planned to be completed by 2018. The project was being driven by the energy deficit in the Altay region.

Chinese investors, including Harbin Electric International Company, expressed interest in the past, however the project has stalled.[2]

In 2017, the project was mentioned in the Government decree 'General Scheme for Allocation of Power Assets until 2035', with a planned capacity of 660 MW to be commissioned in 2031-2035.[3]

In 2019, an analytical report stated that construction of the plant commenced in 2019 and that it would use lignite coal from the Munaysky surface mine in Altay.[4]

In 2021, the revisions to the Government decree from November 2021 confirmed the expected commissioning of the 660MW Altayskaya power plant in 2031-2035, consisting of two 330MW units.[5] An updated decree from December 2022 stated the same.[6]

As of April 2023 and October 2023, there were no other known updates on the project. Given the long-term timeframe of the project and the absence of other news, it is difficult to judge its exact status.
