Gazprom has commissioned the modernized turbine unit No. 6 of the Avtovskaya CHP. This is stated in the company's message.

With the commissioning of turbine unit No. 6, the company has completed a large-scale upgrade of generating capacities at one of the key urban thermal power plants. Earlier, as part of this work, turbine unit No. 7 was upgraded and put into operation.

The installed electric capacity of turbine unit No. 6 has been increased to 123 MW from 100, thermal capacity – to 197 Gcal/h from 168.

Currently, the Avtovskaya CHP is preparing for the construction of a new equipment cooling system – with a closed water supply cycle. It will make it possible to repeatedly use industrial water in the production process and, consequently, use natural resources more efficiently.

Avtovskaya CHP belongs to PJSC TGC-1 (part of Gazprom Energoholding Group). 

In 2019, Gazprom Energoholding completed a large-scale investment program for the creation of new capacities within the framework of power supply agreements (PDMS). In total, 36 projects were implemented for the construction and modernization of generating facilities with a total installed electric capacity of about 9 GW.

As part of the state program for the renewal of generating facilities in the electric power industry (KOMOD), Gazprom Energoholding plans to modernize facilities with a total capacity of about 3.4 GW in 2022-2027. Among them are the comprehensive reconstruction of the electric and heat generating capacities of Moscow and St. Petersburg, the construction of two combined–cycle power units at the Novocherkassk GRES.
