The Surgut-2 Power Station on the Ob River in Russia is the largest gas-fired power station in the world,[2] with an installed capacity of 5,597.1 MW in 2011.

Expansion in 2011[edit]

Expansion of the power plant involved the construction of two ≈400 MW units by December 2011, costing nearly RUB 19 billion, which increased its original capacity of 4,800 MW to 5,597.1 MW.[3][4][5] The two new blocks do not use dried oil gas as is the case in the other six generators. They consume natural gas as a fuel, utilizing combined cycle, with overall efficiency rates of 56%. General Electric is the manufacturer and supplier of the generators.
