(hereinafter referred to as Surgutskaya GRES-2)

Surgutskaya  GRES-2 is located in  Surgut (Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area – Yugra, Tyumen Region) and is the largest thermal power plant of Russia as regards installed capacity, which amounts to 5,597.1 MW. In 2012 the plant generated 39.967 billion kWh.
As for the electric power generation Surgutskaya GRES-2 is  also the largest generating plant in Russia.

Construction of Surgutskaya GRES-2 was started in Q4 of 1979 as per the Resolution of the Soviet of Ministers of the USSR dated November 15, 1979. The resolution bears a symbolic number –  1,000.  The necessity to construct the largest heat power plant in the country was caused by rapid growth of oil and gas production in early 1980s in the north of the Tyumen Region. The region needed electric power: to extract minerals it was necessary to increase the volume of electric power generation five times.

Putting into operation of six power units of Surgutskaya GRES-2 (800 MW each) in recordingly short time, allowed for elimination of the electric power deficiency in the whole Tyumen region. Terms of the power plant construction had no match in the country: 4,800 MW of the new capacities were put into operation within three and a half years. Two first power units of the plant were commissioned in 1985, the last one was put into operation in 1988.

The new stage in the life cycle of Surgutskaya GRES-2 started 20 years later - in 2008, when E.ON Russia started construction of two combined cycle units of 400 MW each within the investment program. Notwithstanding severe climatic conditions and complexity of equipment delivery, the new power units were put into operation in time: on July 23, 2011 Prime-Minister of Russia V. V. Putin instructed to commission new power units of Surgutskaya GRES-2 with the total capacity of 797.1 MW.

Surgutskaya GRES-2 is one of the most efficient thermal power plants of the country. Its technical and economic indicators are highly competitive with the best foreign counterparts: specific fuel consumption amounts to less than 306 g/kWh at steam power units  and  227 g - at CCGTs; electricity consumption for balance-of-plant needs — less than 2.5%; installed capacity utilization factor (ICUF) — 81%.

In 2012 the plant set an absolute record of annual generation - 39.967 bln kWh.

Staff headcount as of 31.12.2012 — 1,254 persons.
