Yaivinskaya GRES

Branch Yaivinskaya GRES of PJSC Unipro

(hereinafter - Yaivinskaya GRES)

Yaivinskaya GRES is a heat power plant located on the bank of the river Yaiva (Perm Territory). Initially 4 power units of 150 MW used coal of the Kizelovskiy coal field as fuel. Since 1987 the power plant has been using the fuel mix (natural gas and coal dust). Within the investment program of E.ON Russia JSC a new combined cycle power unit of 426.4 MW was constructed at Yaivinskaya GRES. In 2014, the plant generated 5.621 billion kWh and 95 thousand Gcal of heat.

Yaivinskaya GRES is situated in the Bereznikovsko-Solikamsky economic district, where in the 1950s there was a long-felt need for construction of a new power plant. Construction of GRES commenced in March 1956 and on June 30, 1963 the first power unit was put into operation. This day is considered to be the birthday of Yaivinskaya GRES. In 1964, units No. 2 and 3 were commissioned. In 1965, when the fourth power unit was put into operation (24.12.1965), Yaivinskaya GRES reached the design generating capacity of 600 MW, and installed heating capacity amounted to 69 Gcal/hour. At that time it was the largest power plant of the Perm power system. Currently, Yaivinskaya GRES is the largest in the upper Kama river area. New impetus was obtained by the plant in 2008, when construction of 425 MW power unit No. 5 was commenced based on the state-of-the-art combined cycle technology in the power industry.

The CCGT-400 unit was put into service in August 2011. The new plant unit has a number of advantages over currently operated equipment.  Efficiency factor is almost one third higher than that of the currently operated equipment - 54.1% (55.9% – electric power generation). In addition, the combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) is maneuverable that allows for quickly adjusting the capacity being generated to the needs of the power grid, and environmentally friendly - less emission of nitrogen oxide and CO2. Due to the 400 MW CCGT commissioning, installed capacity of the plant increased up to 1,025 MW.

In June 2013, a start-up of associated petroleum gas took place at the plant. It allowed to completely refuse from combustion of coal which now is a backup type of fuel.

Yaivinskaya GRES plays an important role in providing stable power supply to major industrial facilities of the Perm Territory, as well as to the social sector in the cities, towns and settlements of the upper Kama river area.
