Two new electric filters were put into operation at Krasnoyarsk CHPP-1

The power engineers of the Krasnoyarsk CHPP-1 (Siberian Generating Company) have commissioned two more new electric filters. In total, 7 out of 14 environmental protection facilities planned for construction are operating at the station. Taking into account the activities carried out since 2018, the dismantling of old chimneys and the construction of new equipment, the environmental modernization program of the first Krasnoyarsk CHPP has been completed by more than 50%. The Krasnoyarsk heat supply system development project, which involves a comprehensive environmental modernization and expansion of the Krasnoyarsk CHPP-1, as well as an increase in the capacity of the Krasnoyarsk CHPP-3, is included in Yenisey Siberia CIP.

This year, the power engineers plan to put three more electrofilters in operation. The filters are already under installation. The main equipment of the station is also undergoing renovation. Two boilers have been dismantled, and power engineers are building new ones in their place. The boilers are planned to be brought into operation in autumn 2023.

Two 35-MW turbo generators that have exhausted their exploitation resource will also be replaced. Siberian Generating Company will install new steam turbines instead. Preparatory work for dismantling will begin at the end of this year.

Currently 359 people work at the construction sites of the Krasnoyarsk CHPP-1. During 2023, this figure will grow to 600 people. Builders, installers, electricians arrived from different parts of Russia.

The investment program is implemented within the framework of the Modernization Program for Generating Capacities. Siberian Generating Company plans to invest 15 billion rubles in the modernization of the Krasnoyarsk CHPP-1, of which 4 billion are investments in the environmental program. The work will be completed by the end of 2024. The station’s emissions will be reduced by more than 20% compared to the level of 2017, and the efficiency of the main equipment will also increase.

The control of the environmental parameters of the operation of the CHPP-1 is available to general public on the official website of Siberian Generating Company.
