The six-unit, 1,260-MW coal-fired Belovskaya power station is owned by TGC-12 (Kuzbassenergo), which in turn is owned by SUEK. The plant’s six units were brought online between 1964 and 1968.[1][2][3]

The power station provides electricity and heat to residential customers[4], as well as electricity to industrial enterprises in the region. Electricity is supplied through high-voltage lines to Kemerovo, Novokuznetsk, Belovo and other cities, as well as to neighbouring regions. The power plant covers the bulk of electricity consumption by industrial enterprises of the Kemerovo Region.[5]

In 2020, a project was underway to expand the residential heat and hot water network and connect more customers, particularly from Belovo city, which relies on local boilers for heat and hot water.[4][6] In 2022 the power plant completed the process of transferring the heat load from 6 old boiler houses in Belovo to the power plant.[7]

Electricity generation by the plant was 5,002 million kWh in 2021, 4,778 million kWh in 2020.[8] In 2022 the plant generated 5,937 million kWh.[9]


In 2021 Belovskaya GRES was selected for the nation-wide COMMod program for modernizing energy generation equipment, where selected plants will receive capacity payments for 15 years.[10][11][12] The government decree from February 2022 cited a planned capacity increase at Unit 2 by 2026, from 200MW to 215MW.[13][14]


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.[15]

The region frequently experiences earthquakes which have been linked to the coal mining practices.[16]
