   In 1974, the construction of a new Alma-Ata heat and power plant (Almaty EPP-2) was started. The construction was made on the basis of the decision (No. 65 of January 5, 1968) of the Ministry of Energy and Electrification of the Kazakh Societ Republic on design estimates, developed by the Alma-Ata branch of "Promenergoproekt" and the Kazakh branch of "TsNIIproektstalkonstruktsiya". Alma-Ata cogeneration plant-2 is a thermal power plant of the original type. In order to increase the level of seismic safety, the station located at the depth of 12 meters. At the station for the first time in the country boiler units with a steam capacity of 420 tons / hour in seismic design were introduced. Construction and installation work for the launch complex was carried out in the period from August 1974 to September 1980. August 30, 1980 was included in the work of the first unit. The State Acceptance Commission, appointed by the Ministry of Energy and Electrification of the USSR by Order No. 80r of April 23, 1979, under the chairmanship of the manager of the Republic of Alma-Ataenergo, Zhakutov A.Zh., September 30, 1980, made the Act on the following: the first launching complex of Alma -Atinskaya EPP-2 in the structure: the main building, the combined auxiliary building No. 1, No. 2, the chimney No. 1, the fuel farm, chemical water purification plant, the open substation, the transformers, the hydrosoldering system and the ash dump, the oil agriculture, fire pump, fire station, dining room, railways and roads. Almaty EPP-2 was built in two stages: • 1 construction was carried out in 1978-1983. Three types of steam boilers of the type BKZ-420-140-7C and three steam turbines of the PT-80 / 100-130 / 13 type were commissioned. • The second phase of the construction was carried out in 1984-1989. Four more steam boilers BKZ-420-140-7C, one steam turbine of type P-50-130 / 13 and two steam turbines of type T-110 / 120-130-5 were commissioned. Today Almaty CHPP-2, part of JSC Almaty Electric Power Plants, is the largest combined heat and power plant in Kazakhstan for combined generation of electric and heat energy for Almaty and Almaty region. The main fuel is coal from Ekibastuz coal basin, fuel oil is used as a fuel. According to the plans for capital construction: • in the period 2009-2011. - Reconstruction of fan cooling towers st. № 1 ÷ 6. The effect of the project: the removal of the electric power limit - 98.8 MW, the increase in electricity production by 362.7 million kWh. • in the period of 2009-2013. - Construction of a new boiler room. The effect from the project implementation: increase in the volume of heat energy production to 1mln Gcal per year with the replacement of production at EPP-1 in order to further improve the environmental situation in the central part of Almaty. During the implementation of these projects, the installed capacity for EPP-2 510 MW / 1176 Gcal / h was achieved.
