Chelyabinsk GRES

Built in 1930, this is the first power plant of the Chelyabinsk Region in Russia, and the first energy system of the country.

Chelyabinsk GRES

During Fortum’s investment programme in Russia, two new combined-cycle gas turbine power units were built on the power plant area.

Unit 1 of Chelyabinsk GRES started commercial operation on 1 December 2015, and unit 2 on 1 March 2016. Both new units’ installed electricity capacity is 247.5 MW and heat capacity approximately 174 MW.

The new units are fully CSA-backed. Prices for capacity under CSA are defined in order to ensure a sufficient return on investments. The plant uses natural gas as fuel.
