Fortum’s TGC-10 Begins Contruction of Nyaganskaya CHP Plant
Finnish electricity generator Fortum has announced that its Russian subsidiary TGC-10 has broken ground on the new Nyaganskaya combined-cycle power plant near Nyagan, a town situated in the gas and oil producing region in the Khanty-Mansisk Autonomous Region in western Siberia, Russia.
The new power plant will comprise three gas-fired units each with a power production capacity of 400MW. The first two units will be commissioned in 2011 and the third in 2012.
With an estimated total investment cost of about E1 billion, the construction of the Nyaganskaya combined heat and power (CHP) is reportedly the largest single investment project in the Russian power sector.
