Project-level coal details

  • Coal source(s): Borodinsky coal mine


The Krasnoyarsk CHP-1 power station is owned by Krasnoyarsk CHP-1 JSC, ultimate parent is SUEK. Siberian Generation Company manages the power assets of SUEK.[1]

The plant’s ten units were brought online between 1954 and 2003.[2][3][4] Unit 1 (25 MW) was retired in 2008.[4] Unit 2 has also presumably been retired prior to 2013 and new Units 11 and 12 added prior to 2013.[5][6]

In April 2018, the first of the plant's three smokestacks was demolished; SUEK was rebuilding taller smokestacks with modern pollution control equipment.[7] In December 2019, SUEK was building a new smokestack which it claimed would reduce the plant's emissions by 80%.[8]

In 2021, the plant generated 1,397 million kWh of electricity, and in 2020, 1,584 million kWh.[9]


In 2021, Krasnoyarsk CHP-1 power plant was selected for the nation-wide COMMod program for modernizing energy generation equipment, where selected plants would receive capacity payments for 15 years.[10][11] In December 2021, it was reported that two of the boilers had been dismantled as part of the program[12] and replacement boilers were being installed.[13] Additionally, two new turbine units of 35MW were planned to be installed by 2024.[5] [12][14] Assembly of the replacement boilers was underway in January and March 2022[14][15] and 60% complete as of February 2023.[16] RUB 15 billion was planned to be spent.[17]

In addition, according to the government decree from February 2022, after the completion of modernization by 2026, Unit 11 capacity would increase from 57 MW to 100MW and Unit 12 capacity would increase from 57MW to 87 MW.[18][5]

Installation of electrostatic precipitators was also on-going as part of the modernization. In February 2023 it was reported that the 8th precipitator was installed.[16] They are supplied by the Russian company Askintech. Allegedly the precipitators have to meet not only Russian, but also European emissions standards. 3 more precipitators should be commissioned by the end of 2023 and the last 3 in 2024, totalling 14 installations. Total emissions are then expected to decrease by 20% and particulate matter emissions by 80%, according to Siberian Generation Company.[16][19]

Planned Retirement replaced by New Units 15 and 16

In parallel to the modernization, the government decree from February 2022 listed the anticipated retirement of four 25 MW units and two 60 MW units at the site by 2024, totalling 220 MW of capacity.[18] Instead, two new 35 MW units were planned to be commissioned by the same year in 2024.[18] These plans were confirmed in the System Operator's document released in early 2023.[5] As of December 2023, there was no news on this project.

Oil spill

In 2021, there was an oil spill in Yenisei river. Following investigations, it transpired that this comes from the CHP-1 plant via Shumovskaya channel that flows into Yenisei. This was contested by the plant, but in November 2022 the court ordered the Krasnoyarsk CHP-1 to install water treatment facilities.[20]


In November 2022, a structure collapsed during the installation of electrostatic precipitator. 3 people fell and were evacuated.[21]
