Background on Plant

The plant is co-fired by coal and gas and provides heat for residential use in Novogornyy, Chelyabinsk.[1] In February 2021 Fortum and the government of Chelyabinsk signed an agreement to burn coal only as a reserve fuel in 2022 and switch the plant entirely to gas in 2023.[2] As of October 2021, the coal-to-gas conversion project seems to be going forward[3] and it was announced that the plant was expected to fully switch to gas in 2022.[4]

In March 2022, in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Finnish company Fortum has announced that it would be ceasing all new investment projects in Russia, but that it would fulfill its contractual obligations related to the coal-to-gas transition at this plant.[5] In March 2022, the company has completed the construction of the infrastructure necessary for the transition from coal to gas. This included putting into operation a second gas pipeline and a second gas distribution point with a gas purification and metering sector.[6][7]

Due to the war in Ukraine, the Finnish company Fortum has announced a freeze on investments and financing of their subsidiaries in Russia, and additionally have made the decision on a controlled exit from the Russian market. This will include a potential sale of the Russian division of Fortum, as well as the sale of Uniper's Russian subsidiary Unipro.[8]
