JSC selects Hill International to modernize a CHP plant

Hill International was selected by JSC Almaty Power Plants to provide project management services for the modernization of the Almaty Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Plant. The Almaty CHP Plant 2 is an operational 510MW coal-fired power project located in Almaty. The CHP-2 is the largest local urban energy source, currently serving more than 64% of the population. The project will modernize the existing CHP Plant 2 to use natural gas instead of coal as a primary fuel to reduce CO2 emissions and improve air quality in the city.

The primary aim of the project is to reduce CO2 emissions in the city by approximately 3 million tons (a reduction of roughly 56%) and fully avoid air emissions of particulate matter and NOx.

The project will be delivered in phases with the first phase entailing the modernization of a 200 MWe unit. Construction is planned to be carried out in three stages. The entire CHP Plant 2 project is expected to be completed in 2026.
