Fortum inaugurates CHP plant in Russia

Fortum has inaugurated its new two-unit combined heat and power plant at Chelyabinsk in Russia.

Speaking at the inauguration, Fortum president Pekka Lundmark said: “With the commissioning of Chelyabinsk GRES, the investment programme we committed to in 2008 has been successfully concluded.” 

Under the programme, Fortum built eight gas-fired units with a combined capacity of over 2 GW at Chelyabinsk and in Tyumen.

Alexander Chuvaev, executive vice-president of Fortum’s Russia Division said the plant provides “the Chelyabinsk region and the Urals with energy produced by highly modern and energy-efficient technology. Our new CHP units have significantly reduced specific emissions of power generation in Russia. They also strengthen supply to the heat system of Chelyabinsk to ensure its further modernisation and improvement.”
