Quick facts:Kharkiv-3 was one of the signature projects of the Soviet Union’s first 5yr plan and was the first CHP plant in the USSR with domestically-manufactured equipment when first commissioned in 1934. Damaged and partially relocated during World War II, the plant was rebuilt and expanded thereafter.The plant has 8 power boilers, five heating boilers and the T/G sets. Heat capacity is 1,092 Gcal/hr. It supplies about a quarter of the heat for Kharkiv and half the city’s hot water in the summer. It was also the first CHP plant in Ukraine to be privatized, in this case by sale to AO Investor, a company of Ukrainian banker and businessman Arsen Avakov. In August 2008, Lukansk Energy Association received permission to take over the plant, so it came under the Energy Standard Group. In mid-Feb 2011, Kharkiv-3 returned to city government ownership after ESG incurred large and mounting debts for natural gas.
