At Novolipetsk Metallurgical Combine, the assembly of the main technological equipment of a new power plant with a capacity of 300 MW begins. It will allow increasing the share of its own generation in the power consumption balance of the plant from 64% to 95%, as well as reducing carbon monoxide emissions by 3 thousand tons per year and greenhouse gases by 650 thousand tons per year. The fuel for generating electricity will be associated gases that are formed during the smelting of iron and steel. The project is based on advanced solutions for the use of secondary energy resources of metallurgical production. In particular, in conjunction with the power plant, a system for the collection and utilization of associated gas from the steelmaking industry, unique for the Russian metallurgy, will be built.
Investments in the project will amount to 36 billion rubles. The start-up of the power plant is scheduled for the end of 2023.
