Background on Plant

The four-unit, 224-MW coal-fired Arkhangelsk Pulp & Paper Mill power station is owned by Pulp Mill Holding GmbH.[1][2] The plant provides power and heat to the Arkhangelsk Paper Mill[3] and provides heat and power to the residents of Novodvinsk.[4][5]

Capacity Uncertainty

According to some sources, there are estimated to be four turbines at the power station, with the capacity of 30 MW (two turbines)[5][6][7] and 60 MW (two turbines)[5][8]. Other sources list four units with two units 6 MW each and two units 60 MW each.[9] Another source is listing five units, one 12 MW, two 25 MW, and two 60MW.[10]

There are an estimated 9 boilers, according to one source.[10] However, the company website also mentions boilers 10 and 11 which were commissioned in 1966 and 1967 respectively, and boilers 12 and 13 which were commissioned in 1971 and boiler 14 commissined in 1974.[8]

Renovations

Some of the original boilers and turbines have been replaced with more modern versions. New boiler #9 was under construction in 2017, with expected commissioning in summer of 2019. The boiler was expected to be linked to turbines #7 and #9.[11] It was commissioned in January 2020.[8][12][13] This boiler unit has replaced the old boiler #9 installed in 1965.[11] In 2013, a new turbine was installed at unit 5 with capacity of 30 MW, replacing the original turbine installed in the 1960s.[7] Another new turbine was proposed to be installed by 2020.[5][14] Units 6 and 8 are expected to have new turbines in the future as well.[5]

Proposed Conversion to Gas

In 2018, a new 120 MW gas-powered unit was planned to be installed here. As of December 2021, the project was still in the stage of a planned feasibility study.[15]

In August 2019, another source was stating that in the future four currently operating coal-fired units are planned to be converted to gas and three new gas boilers are planned to be installed. This will result in converting the entire power station to operate on gas[5] by 2025.[16]

A new 60 MW turbine unit was proposed in 2018 to replace one of the old turbines (unit 7)[17], and a second turbine was planned to be replaced by 2021. According to the General Director of the plant, these two replacements would be the first step towards restructuring the power plant's energy generating system, including the subsequent conversion of the four operating coal-fired boilers to gas and installation of three additional gas-powered boilers.[16]

In April 2022, it was reported that the new steam turbine at unit 7 has been installed.[18] It was reported that the next step in the modernization will be the replacement of the 30-MW turbine at unit 6.[18]
