Omsk CHP-5 power station is a 860-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Omsk province, Russia.

Background on Plant
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. In June 2019 pollution was observed in the Irtysh River near a discharge pipe from the plant. In October 2019, responding to environmental concerns raised at a meeting of the REC citizens' group of Omsk, a representative of TGC-11 stated that converting the plant to gas would raise electricity rates by 70% and was too expensive.
