Background on Plant

The six-unit 320-MW coal-fired Krasnoyarsk Rusal power station is owned by Rusal.

The plant was brought online in 1970. It sends all of its generated electricity to Rusal's Achinsk aluminum refinery. The plant also provides heat and hot water to the city of Achinsk.[1][2]

In September 2021, there was a spill of fuel oil at the Krasnoyarsk Rusal power station after the fuel oil was mistakenly loaded into a boiler that was being repaired.[3]

Expansion

One source refers to an expansion project that was restarted in August 2014. The project anticipates to commission Unit 8 with capacity of 90MW which will ensure that the refinery is fully self-sufficient in electricity. The project was started already in 2006 but was paused due to global financial crisis. Commissioning of the new unit was planned for 2016.[1] However, as of November 2022 there are no news on the project and it is not mentioned in any other sources, therefore it is considered cancelled.
