Background on Plant

The six-unit, 1,200-MW coal-fired Novosibirsk-5 power station is owned by Siberian Generation Company, part of SUEK. Siberian Generation Company acquired a 78% stake in the station's operator Sibeko in January 2018.[1]

The plant’s six units were brought online between 1985 and 2004.[2][3] The plant can burn coal, natural gas, water-coal suspension and heavy fuel oil, according to the company's website.[4] It supplies heat with 35% of population in Novosibirsk.[4]

In March 2018 it was announced that the plant would switch from burning bituminous coal to lignite because lignite is cheaper.[5][4] It appears that this decision was contested in court and Siberian Generation Company lost the case, however no clear action or outcome is mentioned and the station continues to operate using lignite coal.[6][4]

The power plant produced 5,970 million kWh of electricity in 2021 and 5,499 million kWh in 2020.[7]
