Hrazdan Thermal Power Plant is a natural gas-fired power plant in the north-western part of Hrazdan in Armenia. Hrazdan TPP is one of the largest power plants in Armenia. Four older units of the plant are owned and operated by the Hrazdan Power Company, a subsidiary of Tashir Capital. The family of Samvel Karapetyan owns Tashir Capital. The new fifth unit is owned and operated by Gazprom Armenia. Its premises and infrastructure, which include power lines, water and gas pipelines, will be made available to other, more profitable businesses.



According to Sputnik Armenia, the plan to rent out the old thermal station was approved at a meeting of the Commission for Regulation of Public Services on Wednesday. According to the news portal, a company that manufactures refrigeration units has already arranged for the transfer of some of its production to the TPP. In another part of the plant, a free economic zone called Ecos has been established and is now open. Entities involved in the extraction of digital currencies will be permitted to establish crypto farms in this area. In 2018, Armenia passed legislation legalising cryptocurrency mining.
