Background on Plant

The nine-unit, 1,274-MW coal-fired Krasnoyarsk GRES-2 power station was originally owned by Gazprom. The plant’s nine units were brought online between in three phases: Units 1-4 in 1961, Units 5-7 in 1978, and Units 8-9 in 1983.[1][2][3][4]

In December 2019 Suek agreed to buy the plant from Gazprom for 10 billion rubles.[5] The sale was completed in Feburary 2020.[6] Suek took over operations at the plant in October 2020.[3] In January 2020, JSC "Yenisei TGC" (subsidiary of Siberian Generating Company (SGK), which is part of the SUEK JSC group) became the new owner.[7]


In 2021, SUEK completed modernization upgrades to the power station's transmission equipment, which increased the total capacity of the power station from 1,260 to 1,274 MW.[8][9] In May 2022, the power plant was undergoing modernization which included an overhaul of the turbine unit #5 and two associated boilers. After the modernization is completed at this unit, unit 4 is expected to be modernized next.[10] In February 2022, turbine generator #1 was similarly refurbished.[11]
