Vladivostok-2 power station

From Global Energy Monitor

Vladivostok-2 power station (also known as Vladivostokskaya-2, Владивостокская ТЭЦ-2) is a 497-megawatt (MW) natural gas- and coal-fired power plant in Primorsky territory, Russia.

Background

The Vladivostok-2 power station is a combined heat- and electricity-generating station, which is owned by RusHydro has been operating since 1970. The power station uses a cross-link design for flows of steam and water.

Coal-to-gas conversion

The station consists of 14 boiler units and 6 turbine units. It was originally designed to operate by burning coal, but between 2010 and 2013, 10 of the 14 boiler units were converted to run on natural gas.[1][2] In May 2021, RusHydro announced plans to complete a full transition to gas-fired generation at the power station. The first of the four remaining coal-fired boilers at the station was planned to convert to gas by the end of 2021, two more boilers will be converted by 2025, and the final boiler will be decommissioned and dismantled.[2][3] In March 2022, the conversion of the first of the remaining four boilers (boiler #11) from coal-fired to gas-fired was completed.[4]

It is likely that units 1-3 are primarily operating on natural gas since 2013 when 10 out of 14 boilers were converted to gas; therefore, we list them only as gas-fired units with coal as a backup fuel.[1][2] Since 3 out of 14 boilers are still running on coal, we assume that the remaining 3 units (units 4-6) are running primarily on coal with gas as a backup fuel; by 2025, units 4-6 are expected to be fully converted to run on gas as well.[5]

Modernization

RusHydro also plans to replace the three oldest turbine units at the station, presumably Units 1, 2, and 3. When the modernization project is completed, the capacity of the power station will be increased to 574 MW.[2] As of March 2022, this project was still on the table.[4]
