Background on Plant

The 34-MW coal-fired Chaunskaya power station is owned by RusHydro. The plant was brought online in 1944.[1][2]

The station is scheduled to be retired in 2019 and eventually replaced by the Chaunskaya-2 power station, scheduled for commissioning in 2026.[3] In the meantime the area's power supply will come from a floating nuclear power plant (FNPP), the Akademik Lomonosov.[4] The FNPP was commissioned in May 2020 and Chaunskaya's retirement was reportedly imminent.[5]
