Background on Plant

The Cherepovetskaya power station is owned by Gazprom, and contains three units, totaling 630 MW, which are coal-fired; the rest of the plant is gas-fired. The plant’s three coal-fired units were brought online between 1976 and 1978.[1][2][3][4]

In November 2018 it was reported that the plant's three units would be retired as of Jan. 1, 2021. The power supplied by the plant would be replaced by a new gas-fired plant and gas pipelines.[5] However, in October 2020 Oleg Kuvshinnikov, governor of the Vologda province, negotiated an agreement for the three coal-fired units to continue operating for at least three more years.[6][7]
