CHPP-25 is one of the largest CHPPs within Mosenergo. The power plant provides electrical and thermal energy to industrial enterprises, residential buildings and social facilities in the west and south-west of Moscow.

The need to build CHPP-25 was due to the city's need for electrical and especially thermal energy in connection with the deployment of housing and industrial construction in the south-west of Moscow. CHPP-25 was included in the number of operating enterprises of Mosenergo by order of the Minister of Energy and Electrification of the USSR dated January 10, 1975. The first block (boiler TGM - 84B and turbine PT - 60/130-13) of CHPP-25 was put into operation in December 1976. Commissioning of the main power equipment of the station was completed in June 1991 with the commissioning of unit No. 7 (boiler TGMP-344-A and turbine T-250/300-240). Currently, CHPP-25 has seven power boilers, seven cogeneration steam turbines and 12 peak hot water boilers.

At CHPP-25, work is continuously carried out to modernize and improve the efficiency of the installed equipment. Power units are equipped with full-scale automated control systems (ACS) of domestic production. The pumping equipment of the station is equipped with modern adjustable drives. In the scope of long-term planning, measures are being taken to replace sections of steam pipelines and heating surfaces of steam boilers. Automatic metering of gas usage and control of electrical and thermal energy has been introduced.

Proximity to residential development causes additional measures to be taken at the plant to reduce the negative impact on the environment, emissions are constantly monitored, and the noise level is measured. Among the implemented measures to reduce emissions are the installation of gas recirculation smoke exhausters at all power boilers of the station, the introduction of multi-stage fuel combustion at power boilers. In order to reduce noise impact, noise suppressors were installed at the sources of exposure, as well as acoustic screens along the territory of the station. The implementation of all these measures has made it possible over the past 10 years to reduce emissions of pollutants into the atmosphere by 2.5 times, to reduce the noise impact on adjacent residential areas by 30%.[1]

According to the Ministry of Energy 2023-2028 energy plan, released in February 2023, unit 3 (Russian: Т-250/300-240) will be upgraded in 2027 to 259 MW and unit 4 (Russian: Т-250/300-240) in 2026 to 257 MW.
