The phased transformation of the heat and electricity supply system in Krasnoyarsk

Russia
Krasnoyarsk

Target

Efficient and clean heat supply
to >1 million people 9 months a year

Investments

$834m (2020–2025)

Expected effect

–37% emissions compared to 2018

THE PROBLEM:
~100 metres cloud ceiling in winter
(from the ice-free Yenisei River)


Vapours from the Yenisey River form
a cushion above the city
which accumulates emissions from:

  • Old municipal standalone boilers
  • Private houses
  • Small factories and large businesses
  • Cars
Solution1
We plan a complete
replace the heat
distribution network
to reduce heat loss.
Solution2

We will build a new unit for the
Krasnoyarskaya cogeneration
CHPP-3 to replace retiring
facilities, close 35 old small
boilers,
reducing emissions
and supplying the heat
needed to meet growing
local demand.

We equipped 0.7 km2 of new
housing and other facilities
with central heating in 2019
and plan to increase it by
0.6 km2 in 2020.
Solution3
SUEK’s power plants
have higher than
average exhaust
stacks. That’s why
gases from our
plants are released
above the cloud
level.

We are dismantle
the Krasnoyarskaya
cogeneration CHPP-1’s
old exhaust stacks,

and building
new ones with
a height more
than 200 meters.

We will also introduce
electrostatic
precipitators
that catch over
99% of ash.
Solution4
We suggest transferring private houses
to the central heating system.
