Background on Plant

The four-unit, 400-MW coal-fired Artyomovskaya power station is owned by RusHydro. The plant’s four units were brought online between 1961 and 1969.[1][2][3]

In July 2018 the Ministry of Energy announced a program of financial incentives for transitioning coal-fired plants to run on gas.[4] In November 2018 the Far Eastern Generating Co. tendered the construction of a gas-fired plant that would be built by 2020 and would replace the plant's coal-fired units.[5] In May 2019 RusHydro announced that a 91-billion ruble modernization of the plant was scheduled for 2026.[6]
