Background on Plant

The two-unit, 200-MW coal-fired Partizanskaya power station is owned by Far Eastern Generating Company, which is a subsidiary of RusHydro.[1]

The plant’s two units were brought online in 1966 and 1980.[2] In 2009, Unit 3 with 41MW of capacity was retired one of the turbines was decommissioned and replaced by a 100 MW turbine moved from the Raichihinskaya power station.[2]

Partizanskaya power plant generated 844 million kWh of electricity in 2020, 1006 million kWh in 2019.[3]

Coal Expansion

In April 2021, RusHydro announced that it would expand the Partizanskaya power station by adding two additional 140 MW power units, bringing the total capacity of the power station to 480 MW.[4] The new units were planned to undergo construction from 2022 to 2026.[5] The government decree from February 2022 confirms the planned commissioning of the new coal units by 2026.[6] Technical and economic evaluation for the expansion was carried out in 2021.[7] RusHydro's 2021 annual report refers to the investment project and its total estimated investment cost of 76.2 billion roubles.[8]

Environmental impact

In 2017 and 2018 several videos were posted on YouTube of black smoke emitting from the plant, and an employee of the plant reported that the smoke was coal ash escaping due to improperly fitted pipes and boilers.[9]
