Background on Plant

The two-unit, 199-MW coal-fired Partizanskaya power station is owned by RusHydro. The plant’s two units were brought online in 1959 and 1980.[2][3][4] In 2009, one of the turbines was decommissioned and replaced by a 100 MW turbine moved from the Raichihinskaya power station.

Expansion

In 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 479 MW. The new units were planned to undergo construction from 2022 to 2026.[5][6]

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.[7]
