Khabarovsk-1 power station

From Global Energy Monitor

Khabarovsk-1 power station (Хабаровская ТЭЦ-1) is a 455-megawatt (MW) coal- and gas-fired power plant in Khabarovsk territory, Russia. A 328 MW gas-fired plant (Khabarovsk-4 power station, Хабаровская ТЭЦ-4) will replace it in 2025 and is currently under construction.

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]

Retirement and Replacement with Khabarovsk-4 Gas-Fired Plant

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 (Хабаровская ТЭЦ-4 (Russian)), 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]

In July 2021, it was reported that the buildings of the power station were being prepared for dismantling and demolition in order to prepare for the construction of the new power station.[7] Equipment that has been removed from operation will be dismantled first, such as the cooling towers, lighting masts, warehouses and gantry cranes. Parts of the power station will continue its work until the new plant is commissioned.[7] In August 2021, it was reported that dismantling of the equipment has started.[8] In September 2021, it was reported that the design of the Khabarovsk-4 power station has been completed, a land plot has been formalized on the territory adjacent to the Khabarovsk CHPP-1, and construction was scheduled to begin in 2021.[9] The work is planned in two stages - until 2024 and until 2025.[9][10] Construction will be carried out by RusHydro.[10]

Construction of Khabarovsk-4 power plant started in February 2022.[11]

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.[12]

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.[13]
