Background on Plant

The seven-unit 108 MW Kuznetsk CHP power plant is owned by Kuzbassenergo, which is part of Siberian Generation Company which in turn is part of SUEK.[1]

The power plant's equipment includes 10 steam boilers, 2 water boilers, 7 generators and 7 steam turbines.[1] Unit capacities range from 12 MW to 30 MW.[2]

The plant's history dates back to the 1940s. The first phase was commissioned in 1944, the second phase in 1945, the third phase in 1948, the fourth phase in 1952 and the fifth phase in 1969. From 1980, works commenced to refurbish or basically re-build the plant.[3] Since 1994, 6 new turbines were installed.[1] No details are available on when the units were commissioned, apart from Unit 3 (refurbished in 2008) and Unit 12 (refurbished in 2006).[4]

The plant supplies heat to the city of Novokuznetsk and steam to several industrial users such as Rusal, Kuznetsk Ferroalloys.[5]

In 2021 the power plant generated 554 million kWh of electricity, in 2020 it was 538 million kWh.[6] The plant consumes about 617 thousand tonnes of coal per year.[7]

The System Operator's document published in early 2023 refers to the plant as dual-fuelled being able to burn gas and coal.[2] According to the company's website, two of the water boilers are designed to burn natural gas, however the main fuel at the plant is Bituminous coal from the Kuznetsk coal basin.[1]
