Sochinskaya TPP uses the latest steam-gas technology with heat-recovery steam generators used to generate heat from turbine exhaust gas. It is a combined plant delivering heat and electricity. This project features seismic design and meets strict environmental requirements of a resort area.
The first phase included two 78 MW steam-gas generation units launched simultaneously in December, 2004. The second phase of Sochinskaya TPP includes Unit 3 rated at 80 MW and launched on December 5, 2009. Heat pipeline to Sochi became operational in 2010.
