T/G supplier: LMZ, TMZ, Electrosila
Quick facts: Construction of Leningrad CHP (the original name Moscow-16) began in 1940 and the main foundatons and other work were completed by the following year. However, at the start of Russia’s war with Nazi Germany, construction was stopped and much of the material was dismantled and sent out of the city. In Jul 1945, project re-started. The first phase finished in 1963. From 1974-1982, the plant was modernized, expanded, and converted to natural gas.

Moscow-20
Location: Moscow
Operator: Mosenergo (Gazprom)
Configuration: 4 X 25 MW, 1 X 60 MW, 5 X 100 MW, 1 X 36 MW CHP
Operation: 1952-??
Fuel: gasoil, natural gas
Boiler supplier: ??
T/G supplier: LMZ, TMZ
Quick facts: The original generating equipment at the site dates to 1939. Moscow-20 has the first 100-MW CHP T/G set built by TMZ, one of five coal-fired machines installed from 1963-1965. These were converted to residual oil in 1969 and to gasoil in 1994. Plans are in-hand to repower the small sets with gas turbines and in the meantime, the existing equipment has been modernized.

Moscow-21
Location: Moscow
Operator: Mosenergo (Gazprom)
Configuration: 1 X 100 MW, 6 X 110 MW, 2 X 250 MW, 1 X 80 MW, 1 X 150 MW, 1 X 25 MW, 2 X 150 MW GT, CHP
Operation: 1963-1996
Fuel: natural gas, oil
Boiler supplier: Taganrog
T/G supplier: TMZ, LMZ, Electrosila
EPC: Mosenergoproekt
Quick facts: By some measures, this is the largest CHP power station in Russia or Europe and serves about 20% of Moscow's population. It was first envisioned in 1952 as one of two new central station CHP plants, one for northern Moscow and one for the southern part of the city. The northern project became Moscow-21 and was approved at the end of 1953 by the Counil of Ministers for a site near Korovino Village, Krasnopolskiy District. Unit-1 went into operation on 26 Oct 1963 followed by Unit-2 in Dec 1963. In 1968, the second stage was completed, a third stage followed in 1978, and a fourth stage in 1983 bringing installed capacity to 1,290 MWe Upgrades to the first stage from 1989-1995 brought capacity to 1,330 MWe. In 1995, the world's largest turboexpander for power generation was built at TETS-21. The two 5-MW aggregates take in gas at the rate of 31.5 kg/sec. The plant hot water boiler system has 4 X 100 Gcal/hr boilers and 12 X 180 Gcal/hr boilers, all manufacturerd by Dorogobuzh. Total plant thermal capacity is 4,958 Gcal/hr.
