Background on Plant

The eight-unit, 350-MW coal-fired combined heat-and-power[1] Irkutsk-11 power station is owned by Irkutskenergo which is 90.2% owned by En+Group.

The plant’s eight units were brought online between 1959 and 1971.[2]

In December 2019 Irkutskenergo announced that it planned to sell its coal plants and other coal assets, possibly to Gazprom Energoholding LLC, which would facilitate the conversion of these plants to gas.[3][4] To facilitate this, Irkustkenergo would first sell its power plant holdings to its subsidiary Baikal Energy Company for 27 billion roubles.[5] The sale was finalized and these holdings were transferred on Sep. 1, 2020.[6]


The plant is planned to be modernized along with five other power stations in the Irkutsk region. The modernization is planned to take place between 2022 and 2024.[7]
