Sredneuralskaya GRES is a thermal gas power plant with total installed electric capacity of 1,578.5 MW. . The plant consists of several parts: 1st stage – five medium pressure boilers (34 atm abs) and three turbo-units with capacity of 16, 46 and 16 MW; in 2017 SUGRES decommissioned turbo-units Nos.1, 2 and 5 (with total capacity of 78 MW).[21] 2nd stage of the power plant includes three high pressure boilers (140 atm abs) and three turbo-units with capacity of 100, 100 and 38 MW; 3d stage – two two-boiler single-turbine units for supercritical parameters with capacity of 310 and 300 MW; 4th stage – one two-boiler single-turbine unit for supercritical parameters with capacity of 300 MW; CCGT unit with capacity of 419 MW. The power plant also has the gas turbine expansion station (GTES) with capacity of 11.5 MW. Installed heat capacity of the plant – 1,327 Gcal/hr. Natural gas is used as main fuel at Sredneuralskaya GRES. On 6 January 1936, the first turbo-unit was put into operation, and in 1937 the second turbine was put into operation, and in 1939 – the third turbo-unit was put into operation. In 1950 – 1953, at SUGRES complex automation of thermal processes was first implemented in the country. In 1954 a new type of fuel – Ekibastuz coal was used. In 1960th, at SUGRES high power district heating system providing output of 1,150 Gcal/hour of heat power and 2,000 tons of hot water per hour for heat supply and hot water supply for cities: Sverdlovsk, Verkhnyaya Pyshma and Sredneuralsk with total population of more than one million people was put into operation. In 1985, at SUGRES the water treatment facility for heating system feeding with capacity of 6,000 t/hour with supply of source water through a water conduit from Volchikhinskoye water reservoir was put into operation. Such filtration facilities were not used in the energy sector before. In 1982, the first stage of the power plant was converted from coal to natural gas, and backup fuel – fuel oil. In 2008, at SUGRES construction of a CCGT was launched. On 25 July 2011, new 410 MW CCGT was put into operation at Sredneuralskaya GRES. In July 2011, the Company put into operation new 410 MW CCGTs at Nevinnomysskaya GRES and Sredneuralskaya GRES. With introduction of new facilities, Enel became the first generating company in Russia that fulfilled its investment program in part of construction of new facilities.[22] Today, the installed capacity of Sredneuralskaya GRES CCGT is 419 MW.[23]

Investments in Wind FarmsEdit

In June 2017, Enel Russia won the Competition of the Ministry of Energy of Russia for construction of 2 wind power generation facilities with installed capacity of 201 MW in the Murmansk Region and 90 MW in the Rostov region[24] near Azov. The amount of investments will be Euro 405 mln.

In June 2019, the Company received the right to build a wind farm with installed capacity of 71 MW in the Stavropol Territory. Total investment in construction of the wind farm Rodnikovskaya Wind-Power Plant will be about EUR 90 mln.[25]

Environmental programEdit

Enel Russia has equipped power units 4, 5 and 7 of the coal-fired Reftinskaya power plant with fabric filters. The bag filters reduce the emission of dust particle to 98%. The second large-scale ecological project of Reftinskaya GRES was the construction of a dry ash removal system and the transition from the hydraulic method to dry removal of ash. The system was launched on 29 September 2015. It was the first time in Russia, when the traditional hydraulic treatment was replaced by the dry method of transportation and storage of ash.

For its achievements on environmental protection, Reftinskaya GRES won the EcoResponsibility Prize, instituted by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Sverdlovsk region.[citation needed]
