Background on Plant

The six-unit, 384-MW coal-fired Novosibirsk-4 power station is owned by Siberian Generation Company, which acquired a 78% stake in the station's operator Sibeko in January 2018.[1][2] Siberian Generation Company is part of SUEK.[3]

The plant’s six units were brought online between 1953 and 1970.[4][2]

In March 2018 it was announced that the plant would switch from burning bituminous coal to lignite because lignite is cheaper.[5] However it appears that this has not gone ahead as a media article from March 2022 states that the Novosibirsk-4 power station is supplied from Abakansky coal mine and Chernogorsky coal mine, both of which produce subbituminous coal and are owned by SUEK.[6][7]

In June 2018 the capacity of Unit 4 was increased from 100 MW to 110 MW.[8] In December 2019, Siberian Generation Company announced a plan to increase the plant's chimney's height from 60m to 98m height in 2021-2022, which would reduce ground-level air pollution.[9]

In 2022, there was a number of repairs planned at the station, which included an overhaul of turbine No. 4 and repair of boiler No. 12.[10] Repair of boiler No. 12 was underway in March 2022.[10] Furthermore, in 2022-2023 the plant is planning to increase its heat capacity in line with the city of Novosibirsk's development plans and closure of several small boiler plants.[11]

The power plant generated 1,380 million kWh in 2021, in 2020 it was 1,285 million kWh.[12]
