Background on Plant

The eight-unit, 185-MW coal-fired Irkutsk-9 Station 1 power station was owned by EuroSibEnergo. The plant’s eight units were brought online between 1953 and 1993.[1]

The plant's eight units were scheduled to be retired in 2020.[2] In May 2021, it was announced that Irkutsk-9 Station 1 had been fully decommissioned, and its load had been completely transferred to the Irkutsk-9 power station. The transfer project cost RUR 3.45 billion and took 7 years to complete.[3][4]
