The project was supported by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development through a €120 million long term loan. With the launch of the new CCGT, the installed capacity of Nevinnomysskaya GRES increased by 380 MW as an old 30 MW unit (N5) was decommissioned. The efficiency rate of the new CCGTs is about 58%, compared to 35-40% of conventional gas-fired power units.

Environmental program

Enel Russia has equipped power units 4, 5 and 7 of the coal-fired Reftinskaya power plant with fabric filters. The bag filters reduce the emission of dust particle to 98%. The second large-scale ecological project of Reftinskaya GRES was the construction of a dry ash removal system and the transition from the hydraulic method to dry removal of ash. The system was launched on 29 September 2015. It was the first time in Russia, when the traditional hydraulic treatment was replaced by the dry method of transportation and storage of ash.

For its achievements on environmental protection, Reftinskaya GRES won the EcoResponsibility Prize, instituted by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Sverdlovsk region.
