Avtovo CHP-15 provides electric and thermal energy to the Admiralteisky, Moskovsky, Kirovsky and Krasnoselsky Districts of St. Petersburg.

The director of station is Alexander Sidorov.[1]


It began operation on December 26, 1956.[1]

Initially the station used coal, but towards the end of the 20th century TGC-1 began converting to gas. In connection with development of a gas powered station, physical deterioration and equipment obsolescence, reconstruction began in 2000 at the station.[1]

  • In 2000 the turbine unit number 3 was replaced.[2]
  • On December 28, 2007 the new turbine unit number 2, with an electric capacity of 30 MW, and thermal capacity of 75 GCal/h, began operation. Also the transformers and generator were replaced.[1][2]

On August 23, 2009 there was a fire in the repaired unit.[3]
