Background on Plant
The extreme age of the power station has lead to numerous problems. The plant suffered major accidents in 2001, 2008, and 2009. And at least twice, during extreme frosts, the Ministry of Emergencies considered options for evacuating the population of Ulan-Ude because the power station was incapable of meeting heat demand.
