The 80-MW coal-fired Kemerovskaya combined heat & power (CHP) power station is owned by JSC Kemerovo Generation, which ultimately belongs to SUEK.[3][4]

The power plant supplies heat and hot water to the Kirov and Rudnichny districts of the city of Kemerovo.[3]

It has 4 units with 10 to 30 MW of capacity.[4]

In 2021 the plant produced 218 million kWh of electricity, in 2020 it was 194 million kWh.[5]

The System Operator's document released in February 2023 listed the plant as coal-fired and gas-fired.[6] However it appeared that the plant mainly uses coal, according to the company's website and other sources.[4][3]


In November 2018 the inlet and outlet flues of the main boiler accidentally caught fire during a test of the plant's equipment.[7]

In September 2023, fire broke out at the plant when the coal-air mixture ignited in the coal dust bunker of one of the boiler units. The driver of the fuel transport workshop, who was pumping coal into the bunker, was seriously injured.[8][9]
