Background on Plant

The five-unit, 172-MW Novotroitskaya power plant used to be owned by Metalloinvest Ural Steel plant, which in turn used to be owned by Metalloinvest. It March 2022 Metalloinvest completed the sale of the steel plant to Zagorsky Trubny Zavod.[4][5]

The plant supplies heat and power to Metalloinvest Ural Steel plant and heat and hot water to the town of Novotroitsk.[5][6][7]

It has 5 turbine units and 7 boilers with cross-links among them.[8] According to a source from 2016, the fuel used by the power plant includes the steel plant's secondary energy resources (coke and blast-furnace gas) as well as natural gas and coal purchased from external parties.[8] In 2015, natural gas share was 50% of the plant's fuel balance, coking gas was 22%, blast-furnace gas was 22% and coal was only 6% (79,200 tonnes).[8]

In 2020, the company commissioned two new boilers that burn natural gas, coking gas and blast-furnace gas.[9] With the new boilers, heat generation has doubled and the steam requirements of the factory to required standard were secured. The next phase of planned modernization was the construction of a new turbine generator unit with capacity up to 60MW to work in tandem with the new boilers.[9] 2020 sources only referred to the use of natural gas, coking gas and blast-furnace gas at the plant.[10][9]

The System Operator's document published in early 2023 confirmed that the plant does not use coal.[11]
