Background on Plant

The three-unit, 240-MW coal-fired Novo-Ziminskaya power station is owned by Irkutskenergo which is 90.2% owned by En+Group. The plant’s three units were brought online between 1981 and 1983.[1][2] In April 2016 it was reported that the plant's owner had held talks with Gazprom on making the plant a pilot project for converting coal-fired turbines to run on gas.[3] In December 2019 Irkutskenergo announced that it planned to bundle its coal assets under the control of one of its subsidiaries, Baikal Energy, to prepare them for a future sale to an outside company, possibly Gazprom Energoholding LLC, which would facilitate the conversion of these plants to gas.[4][5] The transfer of assets to Baikal Energy was planned to happen in stages and be complete by 2024.[6]
