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 sell its coal plants and other coal assets, possibly to Gazprom Energoholding LLC, which would facilitate the conversion of these plants to gas.[4][5]
