Background on Plant
The Kirov-3 power station began operation in 1942 and generates both heat and electricity. During its prime operating period, the power station had numerous boilers and turbines, but as of June 2021, only one power-generating turbine with 22 MW of capacity was active. Several coal-fired boilers for heat generation remain active as well. The plant was formerly operated by TGC-5, which is owned by Renova Group.
In 2014 T Plus Group completed construction of a new gas-fired combined cycle unit.
