A 483-MW gas-steam Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant, built by a China-Russia joint venture, officially started operation on 20 June 2017.
The CHP is the tangible result of the Huadian-Teninskaya joint project. It was launched by China Huadian Hong Kong Co. Ltd. and Russia's second regional power company TGC-2 in 2011, with a total investment of USD 571 million.
The project is seen as a symbol of further deepening of cooperation between China and Russia in the field of electric power.
• The project was designed to generate 3.02 billion KWH of electric energy and 814000 Giga of heating supply annually.
• The plant is expected to tackle the Yaroslavl Province’s chronic problem of power shortages.
• It will bring down Yaroslavl's power deficit from 40-50 per cent to 5-15 per cent and fully cover its total power demand in warmer months.
