Project-level coal details

  • Coal source(s): Severo-Vostochny coal mine


The 83-MW coal-fired Raichihinskaya power station is owned by Far Eastern Generating Company, which is in turn is owned by RusHydro.[1][2][3]

The first unit was commissioned in 1953.

However in 2009, the largest and newest turbine with 100 MW capacity was moved to the Partizanskaya power station.[4]

And in 2020, two units with 19MW of capacity from the first stage were retired, leaving 83MW of installed capacity in operation at the power station.[2][5][3] As of 2022, there were also two boilers and another boiler mothballed.[6]

The power station provides electricity to Amur and Khabarovsk regions and heat to Progress settlement. The system of heat supply is closed[2], therefore the settlement is a captive heat user.[2] Coal is supplied to the plant from the Raichikinsk coal deposit - for example from Severo-Vostochniy coal mine.

The plant produced 479 million kWh of electricity in 2020[5], 428 million kW in 2021[7] and about 490 million kWh in 2022.[6]
