Background on Plant

In 1950, Kuzbassenergo began building the Novo-Kemerovskaya power station in Kemerovo. The first stage of construction was completed in 1959. New boilers were built in later decades to replace older units. The plant is still owned by Kuzbassenergo, which is now owned by SUEK.[1][2][3][4]

The plant should not be confused with the Kemerovskaya GRES power station or the Kemerovskaya CHP power station.

Description of Expansion

In March 2008, RAO UES (a now-defunct company, eliminated after the Russian energy privatization of the mid-2000's was completed) signed an agreement with the provincial government of Kemerovo that cited the construction, among other projects, of an additional 120-MW coal-fired Unit 15 at Novo-Kemerovskaya.[5] In February 2009, Unit 15 was completed and went online, bringing Novo-Kemerovskaya's total capacity up to 580 MW.[6] The new unit cost approximately $50 million.[7]
