Perm SDPP is one of Russia’s four largest thermal power plants and the largest energy supplier in the Perm region. It accounts for almost 42% of the power of Prikamye. Perm SDPP is the only heat supplier for the city of Dobryanka with a population of 33,000 people.
The natural gas of the Urengoy and Yamburg deposits serves as the main and reserve fuel; it comes to the plant via the branches of the main gas pipelines.
The technical project of the Perm SDPP was approved in 1978, and then three steam-power units of the Perm SDPP were commissioned in the period from 1986 to 1991. In August of 2017, power unit #4 was put into operation on the basis of a CCGT-800 combined cycle gas turbine.
Perm SDPP supplies energy to the nearby consumer groups: the industrial center of the Perm Territory (oil production, oil refining and petrochemical enterprises, engineering and other energy-intensive industries) and the Verkhnekamsky industrial hub (petrochemicals, chemicals, nonferrous and ferrous metallurgy, logging and timber processing, mining).
Currently, the power generated by the Perm SDPP goes to the Berezniki – Solikamsk industrial hub in the north, the center of Sverdlovsk region in the east and to the Perm-Zakamsky power hub in in the west, neighbor to two industrial regions – the Udmurt Republic and the Republic of Bashkortostan.
