Background on Plant

The four-unit, 720-MW coal-fired Khabarovsk-3 power station is owned by RusHydro. The plant’s four units were brought online between 1985 and 2006.[1][2] In March 2019 the plant began converting one of its boilers to run on gas instead of coal.[3] As of June 2020 the plant was described by energybase.ru as a cogeneration plant, suggesting that the conversion of Unit 1 to gas is complete.[4]
