Construction of CHP-27 began during the SovietUnion in 1987. But it ended already after the collapse of the USSR, in 1992. Initially, it was called "Northern Thermal Power Plant". The first power unit was launched in 1996, the second - in 1998. The third unit was launched in 2007. It became the most powerful power plant of Mosenergo, capable of illuminating about 400 thousand apartments. Its capacity is 450 MW. This is the most modern power plant in the region.
Thanks to this station, more than one million residents of the Northern and Northeastern Districts of Moscow, as well as the city of Mytischi, receive heat and electricity.
CHP-27 is called the most environmentally friendlypower plant not only in Russia but also in Europe.

Scheme of operation of CHP
Simplified work pattern
The main task of power plants, boilers, electrical and heating networks is the production, conversion and distribution of electrical energy and heat to consumers.
Efficiency and environmental friendliness of steam and gas units
The use of highly efficient steam-gasinstallations allows to provide total efficiency to 52% and at the same time to save 30% of gas in comparison with the traditional steam-power equipment. In addition, the use of combined-cycle technology reduces the amount of harmful emissions into the atmosphere.
