Background on Plant
The six-unit, 1,200-MW coal-fired Novosibirsk-5 power station is owned by SGK, which acquired a 78% stake in the station's operator Sibeko in January 2018.. The plant’s six units were brought online between 1985 and 2004. In August 2018 SGK was acquired by Siberian Coal Energy Company (SUEK).
In March 2018 it was announced that the plant would switch from burning bituminous coal to lignite because lignite is cheaper.
