Located in the center of the Middle Urals energy system, the Verkhnetagilskaya TPP is one of the main suppliers of electricity in the Sverdlovsk Region.

The construction of the Verkhnetagilskaya TPP began in 1951. The first power generating unit was launched in May 1956. Phases I-III were launched between 1956 and 1959, while phases IV and V were commissioned in 1960–1961 and 1962–1964 respectively. In 1964 the plant reached its project capacity of 1,600 MW. To improve heat supply to Verkhny Tagil and Novouralsk, four condensing turbines were upgraded and converted into cogeneration turbines.

In 2016, construction and commissioning of the new PGU-420 MW combined cycle gas turbine were completed. In 2016, the power plant celebrated the 60th anniversary of the launch of its first power unit. From the launch of the first unit of the plant to February 2016, Verkhnetagilskaya TPP produced 500 billion kWh.

Initially, the plant was intended to supply electricity to the Urals Integrated Electrochemical Plant (Novouralsk). However, at present, the generated power is mainly distributed in the grids of the Sverdlovsk Region. The power plant produces about 7 billion kWh annually, and supplies heat to Verkhny Tagil.

The Vogulskaya TPP is operated from May through September. Its average output is 1.76 million kWh, and this amount of power is completely used for covering the plant's own needs.

A medium-term technical re-equipment and renovation program for the period from 2018-2020 has been developed at the plant. Priority areas include measures proposed in the sphere of environmental protection. Specialists of the Verkhnetagilskaya TPP are aiming at reducing emissions and industrial waste.


Sverdlovsk Region is the largest region in Urals Federal District. Its capital is Yekaterinburg. With a population of 4.3 million, it is the 5th most populous region in Russia. Sverdlovsk Region is one of the fastest-developing regions with large industrial enterprises, plenty of natural resources and strong academic potential. Its industry concentration is four times higher than national average. The strongest industries in the region are metallurgy and industrial machinery. Sverdlovsk Region has some of the richest reserves of natural resources. Strong industrial base and environmental conditions such as continental climate promote the development of heat and electric power industries.
