Background on Plant

The ten-unit, 535-MW coal-fired Novosibirsk-3 power station is owned by SGK, which acquired a 78% stake in the station's operator Sibeko in January 2018.[1]. The plant’s ten units were brought online between 1942 and 2005. Four units have been retired.[2][3]

Capacity uncertainty

Although the power station's turbines have a rated capacity of 535 MW, as of June 2021, the Siberian Generating Company website lists a total capacity of 496 MW for the power station.[4]

Modernization

In August 2018 SGK was acquired by Siberian Coal Energy Company (SUEK).[5] In December 2020 the plant was chosen for a modernization and refurbishment program that will increase its overall capacity by 20 MW by 2026.[6]

In June 2021, SGK announced that it would spend 12 billion rubles to replace two generators and two turbines, build a boiler and install three electrostatic precipitators at the Novosibirsk-3 power station. It aims to replace turbine generators 11 and 13 between 2024 and 2027, increasing the power station's capacity by 40 MW.[7] Turbine #13 is expected to be replaced from 2024-2026, increasing the unit's capacity by 20 MW. Turbine #11 is expected to be replaced from 2026-2027, increasing the unit's capacity by 20 MW. By 2027, it is also expected that the boiler section of the station will be modernized.[8] This will include an assembly of a new boiler #15 and replacement of boiler #8 with a new boiler of the same capacity.[9]

Turbine #10 was modernized in March of 2022.[10]
