Background on Plant

The power station began operations in 1954. It currently consists of 2 turbine units and 4 boiler units, connected through a cross-link system. Both operating turbines have capacity of 60 MW. The boilers are designed to run on both coal and natural gas.[1] The station is capable of burning natural and waste gas, fuel oil, coal, production wastes of the briquette factory - "sludge" as process fuel, and a renewable fuel source such as granulated husk - sunflower processing waste from oil extraction plants.[2]

The station was originally owned by Bashkir Generation Company, which sold it to Sverdlovsk Energogazovaya Company for 84.7 million rubles in 2016.[3]
