Fuel is delivered to the power station with railway cars. During the acceptance, the quantitative control is performed – the fuel is fed into the coal charging fleet through the strain scales. At the same time, coal samples are selected and fuel quality control is performed. After that, cars with coal are fed for unloading to car dumpers or transporter cranes. In the period of low temperatures, cars with frozen coal are preliminary passed through defrosting houses of mixed type. After unloading with belt feeders and conveyors, the fuel is supplied either to raw coal silos for further processing or to a warehouse for storage. In average, thermal power plant is capable of unloading up to 200 cars with fuel every day in the summer and up to 100 cars in the winter.
