CHPP-1 named after B. Orazbayev


The design and construction of the Alma-Ata TPP (now AlES CHPP-1 named after B. Orazbayev) began in 1931. And on October 25, 1935, the first unit was put under industrial load.

In 1935, 1.8 million kWh of electricity was generated. For today, this is the generation of electricity during the day of operation of the station, but for Alma-Ata in the mid-forties, the start of the turbine became a big holiday.

By 1940, three boilers and three turbines were installed. The total capacity is 10.5 MW. Until 1946, two more turbines and one boiler were put into operation. This was the end of the first stage of construction of the power plant.

In the second stage, in 1953-54, two boilers and a turbine of station No. 6 with a capacity of 6.3 MW were installed and put into operation.
The third and fourth stages of expansion solve the issue of generating electricity on thermal consumption. In 1957, a medium-pressure boiler and a heating turbine AT-12 with a capacity of 12 MW were installed. In 1960-61, two high-pressure boilers BKZ-160-100 and a turbine with steam supply to industrial consumers and for water heaters of the turbine R-25-90/18 were installed and put into operation. In 1960, the Alma-Ata TPP was renamed the Alma-Ata TPP. For the first time, heat from the Alma-Ata CHPP was released in the 4th quarter of 1961. The installation of two hot-water boilers in 1966-67 completed the fourth stage of the expansion of the Alma-Ata CHPP.


The fifth stage of the expansion of the station was designed taking into account the general development plan of the city of Alma-Ata.
At the CHPP from 1969 to 1972. two turbines with steam extraction are installed for heating water and releasing it to industrial consumers. Four boilers BKZ-160-100 and two hot water boilers PTVM-100 of 100 Gcal/hour were installed. In 1976-79, three more hot water boilers were put into operation.
At the end of 2000, outdated inefficient equipment was taken out of operation and dismantled. There are three steam turbines-one R-25-90/18 and two PT-60-90/13 with a total capacity of 145 MW, six high-pressure steam boilers BKZ-160-100 and seven PTVM-100 hot water boilers of 100 Gcal/hour.
After the reform of JSC Agro-industrial Complex CHPP-1 named after B. Orazbayev, it began to function on February 15, 2007. as a part of JSC "Almaty electric stations".
