Background on Plant

The Yuzhno-Sakhalinskaya 1 power station is owned by RusHydro. The station consists of two independent heat- and energy- production facilities. The older facility, containing power units 1-3, consists of 5 boiler units and 3 turbine units, connected with a cross-link configuration, with total capacity of 215 MW. This section of the power station was originally designed to burn coal, but all five boiler units were converted to burn gas between 2011 and 2013. The second production facility, consisting of power units 4 & 5 with 230 MW of gas-fired capacity, became fully operational in 2013.[1][2]

In September 2020 the plant's former Deputy Director plead guilty to charges of taking 1,860,000 rubles in bribes from representatives of Far Eastern Engineering Company LLC in exchange for modifying a contract for the reconstruction of the plant's railway tracks.[3]
