Background on Plant

Chaunskaya-2 power station would replace the original Chaunskaya power station, which was commissioned in 1944 and expected to be retired several years after 2023.[1]

As of November 2021, construction of the plant is expected to start in 2026 with completion by 2028.[2] As of November 2021, according to a media article, RusHydro was looking at selecting the site and choosing the fuel, with local coal being one of the options. It would be based on advanced modern technology with high levels of filtration of emissions. RusHydro was developing the investment proposal for the station with a plan to have the project prepared in 2022-2023.[2]

The area's main power supply comes from a 70-MW floating nuclear power plant, the Akademik Lomonosov, which was commissioned in May 2020.[3][4]

As of November 2022, there were no new updates related to the proposal of Chaunskaya-2 power station.
