Quick facts: This loction on the Oka River was the site of the first coal-fired TPP built under the Soviet state electrification plan. The grand opening was on 4 Jun 1922. Kashira was connected to the Moscow urban zone by the country's first 110kV overhead trahmssion line. The equipment was dismantled during the early part of World War II and reassembled and recommissioned in Feb 1943. About three-quarters of the heating output from this power station is deliverd to Kashira-2 City. A small museum was opened at the TPP in 1972. The stacks are 250m tall, the first in Russia at this height. In Oct 2002, Unit-3 was damaged by an explosion and roof collapse. It was later dismantled and was replaced in 2007/08 by a new-design, 330-MW unit.. The plant is sometmes called Moscow-4. It connects to the 500kV grid.
