Background on Plant

The 195-MW coal-fired Orskaya CHP-1 power station is owned and operated by TPLus Group, which is part of the Renova Group.

The plant’s six units were brought online between 1957 and 1962.[2][3] Although originally designed to run on coal, the power station primarily uses natural gas as fuel. It was fully converted from coal to gas in 1998.[1]

At one point the power station had up to 295 MW of installed capacity, but as of June 2021 and November 2022, the TPLus Group's website listed only 195 MW of installed capacity that operates on natural gas and heavy fuel oil as a back-up.[4]
