Background on Plant

The Krasnoyarsk CHP-3 power station began operating as a heat generating station in 1992. It operates 7 coal-fired boilers for heat and hot water generation.[1]

The RAO UES 2006-10 five-year plan (from before the restructuring of RAO UES), which RAO management approved in January 2007, listed as a long-term project the addition of two 185-MW coal-fired units at Krasnoyarsk CHP-3, with completion dates of 2009-10.[2]

In 2009, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development provided a loan of approximately US$75 million to finance construction of one of the 185-MW units at Krasnoyarsk CHP-3.[3]

In March 2012, Yenisei TGC (TGC-13), a subsidiary of Siberian Generating Company (SUEK), finished construction on the first 208-MW, $20 million unit of the Krasnoyarsk-3 coal-fired power plant, and brought the unit online.[4][5]

There is no mention of a second coal-fired unit in TGC-13's 2012 Annual Report, or in the company's press releases, and it appears that the second unit has been cancelled.[6][7]

In October 2018 a new generator with 208-MW capacity and an estimated lifespan of 40 years was brought online and replaced the plant's old generator.[8]

In June 2021, SUEK announced that it would invest a combined total of RUR 33 billion toward modernization efforts at the Krasnoyarsk CHP-3 power station and the nearby Krasnoyarsk CHP-1 power station.[9]
