Background on Plant

The 285-MW Amurskaya-1 power station is owned by RusHydro. The plant has 5 turbine generators and 9 boiler units, which are connected through a cross-link design. The five turbine units were brought online between 1967 and 1987.[2][3] Three of the plant's boiler units were converted to fire on natural gas: boilers 6 & 7 in 2000, and boiler 2 in 2004.[4]

In November 2019 the construction of a second ash dump for the plant was completed and will allow the plant to operate for another 25 years, according to RusHydro's subsidiary the Far Eastern Generating Company. In total the project cost more than RUR 152 million.[5]
