Configuration: 2 X 800 MW
Operation: 1988-1991
Fuel: lignite
Boiler supplier: Podoloski
T/G supplier: LMZ, Electrosila
Quick facts: This is a minemouth power station, originally planned for 8 X 800 MW untis. This was later reduced to four sets, and in the event only two were built in the first phase. The project was first approved in 1975, and construction began in 1978. Unit-1 went online on 1 Dec 1987 and Unit-2 followed in April 1991. Berezovsk delivers around 10 TWh/yr of electricity to the gird at 500kV and is supplied by brown coal from a mine 17km away owned by Rosuglesbyt. The mine has total reserves of approximately 6bn tons. Construction of a third unit was started, stopped, and then restarted. The third unit is now scheduled for service in 2015. The stack is 370m, the tallest in Russia.
