Background on Plant

The 11-unit, 1,460-MW coal-fired Moscow CHP-22 power station is owned by Gazprom. The plant’s 11 units were brought online between 1960 and 1973.[2][3][4] According to its operator Mosenergo the plant in 1998 was powered by natural gas (85.6%), coal (14.2%), and fuel oil (0.2%).[1]

In October 2017, Gazprom announced that it would spend 10 billion rubles ($160 million) to replace turbines at Moscow CHP-22.[5] In 2018 it was reported that the plant would stop burning coal at an unspecified time in the future.[6]

In 2014 a plan to rebuild Unit 9 with an increased capacity of 335 MW was announced. The rebuilt unit is scheduled to be commissioned in 2021.[4]
