Background on Plant

The six-unit, 1,260-MW coal-fired Belovskaya power station is owned by SUEK. The plant’s six units were brought online between 1964 and 1968.[1][2][3][4]

The power station provides electricity and heat to residential customers[5], as well as electricity to industrial enterprises in the region.[4] Electricity is supplied through high-voltage lines to Kemerovo, Novokuznetsk, Belovo and other cities, as well as to neighboring regions. The power plant provides the bulk of electricity consumption by industrial enterprises of the Kemerovo Region.[4] Currently, a project is underway to expand the residential heat and hot water network and connect more customers, particularly from Belovo city, which currently rely on local boilers for heat and hot water.[5][6]

Accidents

In July 2019 a woman and her young daughter drowned after being pulled into an intake valve in a reservoir that feeds water to the plant.[7]

The region frequently experiences earthquakes which have been linked to the coal mining practices.[8]
