Background on Plant

The four-unit, 175-MW coal-fired Severodvinsk-1 power station is owned by SINTEZ Group. The plant’s four units were brought online between 1950 and 1977.[1][2][3]

In July 2016 TGC-2 announced that it had chosen a contractor to build a gas-fired plant that would replace Severodvinsk-1.[4] In February 2019 the Ural Turbine Plant, which manufactures gas turbines, was contracted to replace the plant's two turbines in 2020.[5]

In June 2021, the government announced that it planned to convert Severodvinskaya CHPP-1 to natural gas in two stages. The first stage involves the commissioning of a power boiler, with a target completion date of December 2022. The second stage will entail commissioning of two more power boilers in March 2023. Completion of a full transition to gas is targeted for the end of 2023.[6]
