Background on Plant

The eight-unit, 455-MW coal-fired Khabarovsk-1 power station is owned by RusHydro. The station uses a cross-link design for flows of steam and water between boiler units and turbine units. Khabarovsk-1 currently has 7 operating turbine units and 15 operating boiler units. The turbine units were brought online between 1954 and 1972. Boiler units 9-15 at Khabarovsk-1 have been converted to run on natural gas.[1][2]

In July 2018 the Ministry of Energy announced a program of financial incentives for transitioning coal-fired plants to run on gas.[3] In November 2018 the Far Eastern Generating Co. tendered the construction of a gas-fired plant, Khabarovsk-4, that would be built by 2020 and would replace the coal-fired units at Khabarovsk-1.[4] In June 2019 it was reported that Khabarovsk-4 would be built and Khabarovsk-1 would be retired by 2023.[5] In November 2020 the commissioning date for the new gas plant and retirement date for Khabarovsk-1 were delayed to 2025.[6]

Fire at plant

In October 2019 a fire at the plant caused the temporary closure of some units and led to a loss of power for 58,000 residents.[7]

Environmental impact

In May 2019 the plant was ordered to pay a 90,000-ruble fine for dumping petroleum products into the Amur River in March 2019.[8]
