Background on Plant

The six-unit, 565-MW coal-fired Omsk CHP-4 power station is owned by Inter RAO.[1]

The power station runs on both Ekibastuz coal and natural gas. Although the power station's turbines are rated for 565 MW of capacity, as of June 2021, the TGC-11 website only lists the plant as having 385 MW of installed capacity.[2]

Environmental impact

In 2017 it was reported that the plant received a permit to expand its ash dump without its Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for the expansion being approved.[3]

In November 2018 it was reported that the plant's operator TGC-11 has refused to sign an openness agreement with the Ministry of the Environment that would allow for monitoring of emissions.[4]

Safety violations

In November 2019 an inspection of the plant found that it had failed to comply with hygiene and sanitation standards for its workers.[5]
