Gasification of Yuzhno-Sakhalinskaya CHPP-1 has improved the ecology in the region

Full gasification of the Yuzhno-Sakhalinskaya CHPP-1 of OJSC Sakhalinenergo not only increased the efficiency of the equipment and its wear, but also improved the environmental situation in the regional center.

According to the press service of Sakhalinenergo, at the beginning of this year, the volume of pollutant emissions into the atmosphere compared to the period when the station was operating on coal decreased by 10,4 thousand tons or by 78%. Emissions of particulate matter decreased by 4,3 thousand tons or by 82%, sulfur oxides - by almost 5 thousand tons or by 81%, nitrogen oxides by 1,4 thousand tons or by 62%.

The plan for gasification of Yuzhno-Sakhalinskaya CHPP-1 was developed long ago. However, its practical implementation became possible only in 2010 year. Thanks to the efforts of the governor, the regional government and RAO ES of the East, it was possible to achieve a decision at the federal level to allocate the required amount of gas for the Sakhalin-2 project.

The first boiler was reconstructed for a new type of fuel in the 2011 year, the last - the fifth in a row - in October 2013. Coal remained a reserve fuel for the station.
