Barnaulskaya-3 power station (or Barnaul-3 power station) is a 470-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Altai territory, Russia.

Background on Plant
The three-unit, 470-MW coal-fired Barnaulskaya-3 power station is owned by SUEK. The plant’s three units were brought online between 1978 and 1985. The power station consists of three turbines and 12 boilers (five power-generating and seven water-heating boilers). Since 1997, four of the boilers have been converted to operate on natural gas. The gross capacity of the station varies by source but is stated to be 445 MW on the company website, meaning that some of the units are not operating at maximum capacity.
In November 2017 a notary for Banaulskaya-3 was convicted of embezzling 38 millions rubles from the plant, and was sentenced to four years and three months in prison.
