Background on Plant

The 34-MW coal-fired Chaunskaya power station is owned by RusHydro. The plant was brought online in 1944.[1][2]

The station is scheduled to be retired in 2019 and eventually replaced by the Chaunskaya-2 power station, scheduled for commissioning in 2026.[3] In the meantime the area's power supply will come from a floating nuclear power plant, the Akademik Lomonosov.[4]
