Background on Plant

The three-unit, 450-MW coal-fired plant is owned by TPlus Group, which is part of the Renova Group. The plant was previously part of TGC-5 and Volzhskaya TGC. TPlus is the successor Volzhskaya TGC, which consolidated TGC-5, TGC-6, TGC-9 and Orenburgskaya TGC in 2014. In 2015, at the shareholders meeting, it was decided to change the name of the combined company to TPlus.[1]

The plant’s three units were brought online between 1982 and 1986[2][3][4] The station is designed to use both coal and gas as fuel.[5] The station provides heat and power to the industry and residential sector of the city of Kirov.[5][6]

The plant produced 1,256 million kWh of electricity in 2020.[7]

Coal-to-Gas Conversion

In late 2021 TPlus has reported its plan to fully convert the plant to gas by 2023.[8]
