Background

Sevkazenergo Joint-Stock Company has a vertically-integrated structure and is part of the Central Asian Electric Power Corporation JSC (CAEPCO) company group.[3] The combined heat and power station supplies heat to residents in the North Kazakhstan region, including the Petropavlovsk city, as well as heat and electricity to industrial and agricultural enterprises in the region.[4]

Starting in 2016, the installed capacity of the Petropavlovsk-2 power station was 541 MW for electricity and 713 Gcal/h for heat.[2] According to a 2016 annual report, the power station commissioned turbine unit No. 5 and boiler unit No. 12 that year. The new turbine unit had a capacity of 95 MW.[5]

In addition, the power station's chimney was repaired from 2013 to 2017.[6]

Incidences

There have been numerous incidences at the power station. For example, in January 2020, a boiler operator died after falling into burning ash while cleaning boiler slag.[7]
