Background

The Pavlodar-3 power station, like the Pavlodar-2 power station, is owned by Pavlodarenergo JSC.[3][4] It was launched in 1972.

The plant has undergone several upgrading efforts. In 2007, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development provided EUR 30 million to fund purchase and installation of a new turbo-generator.[5] Recent modernization efforts have increased the power station's original capacity. For example, in 2014, the capacity of turbine No. 5 increased by 20 MW, from 110 MW to 130 MW.[6]

In 2018, reconstruction of the unit No. 6 turbine was completed, increasing the unit's capacity to 125 MW and the station's total installed capacity to 555 MW.[2]

In March 2021, the existing ash dump was filled to capacity and the construction of a new site for the disposal of industrial waste was urgently underway.[7]
