The Most Powerful Thermal Power Plant In Russia

Posted on May 5, 2013 by team

Surgut state thermal power plant is one of the most powerful power plants in Russia. The CPP of high power functions within the system along with other large power stations and is located in Surgut, the Khanty-Mansiisk region of Russia.

Due to the rapid growth of oil and gas mining there appeared a shortage of energy in the region. What they had to do was to produce fivefold more energy than they did. So it was decided to build a a new power station in Surgut – in the oil capital of Russia.

The work started in 1979 and in 1985 the first unit of the plant was put into service. Six major units joined it in the period of 1985-88.

Under the initial project there had to be eight 800 MW power units and the general output had to amount to 6400 MW. Thus it had to become the most powerful thermal power station in the whole world. But two remaining associated gas units did not come into operation and one of the three pipes of the power plant has not been used.

Today the power plant output is 5597,1 MW including 797,1 MW – the output of two new combined cycle power units which were put to use in 2011. It makes this thermal power plant the most powerful one in Russia, and the second the world.

The seventh and eighth 400 MW power units were being built beyond the initial project. They use purified natural gas as fuel.

    I was quite relieved to see the obligatory girls but the second blonde is a bit heavy of chin.
