Background on Plant

The Barabinsk power station is owned by Sibeko. The plant is a combined heat and power plant; it produces around 100 MW of electricity, as well as heat.[2][3] The Barabinsk power station at one point operated with seven units, but the Siberian Generating Company's website only lists four active units as of June 2021. It is not clear which units are no longer active.[4] In March 2018 it was announced that the plant would switch from burning bituminous coal to lignite because lignite is cheaper.[5]

In January 2018 Siberian Generating Company (SGK) acquired 78% ownership of Sibeko.[6] In August 2018 SGK was acquired by Siberian Coal Energy Company (SUEK).[7]
