Project-level coal details

  • Coal source(s): Inta, Kuznetsk and Khakass deposits


The Apatitskaya CHP power station is owned by TGC-1, which in turn is owned by Gazprom (51.79%) and Fortum (29.99%).[1]

It is a combined heat and power plant (CHP). The plant’s eight units were brought online between 1959 and 1964.[2][3][4] Coal for the power station is supplied by the Inta, Kuznetsk and Khakass deposits.[3]

Turbine units 2 (36MW) and 5 (21MW) were retired in 2013. Unit 1 (36MW) was retired in 2016.[3] The plant's capacity since then is 230MW.[5]

The power plant is the only heat supplier of centralized heat for the cities of Apatity and Kirovsk.[6] It also supplies heat to Apatyt JSC - an industrial company that produces phosphate-based fertilizer products.[3]

In October 2021, there was a fire at the power station, staff was evacuated and there were no casualties.[7] Another fire incident occurred in February 2023. [8]
