Background on Plant

The station powers and provides heat to the the Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works[2], but also supplies heat to the residential sector in Magnitogorsk.[3]

The plant has 6 turbine units and 9 boiler units.[4] Some of the boilers are designed to run on natural gas as well as coal.[5]

Information on the plant is very limited. Another source refers to capacity of the plant at 355MW (as of November 2022).[6] It appears that capacity has increased in 2019 following the commissioning of a 50MW gas turbine, which has increased the plant's capacity by 25MW.[7]

In January 2022, local residents reported heavy smoke coming from the plant, although it was confirmed that there were no accidents.[8]
