The Gas Plant was opened in 1861.

An octagonal red brick gas storage and another gas storage of the same shape, built in 1867. The storages were used for the extraction of gas, coke, tar and ammoniac water. In 1892 - 1894, reconstruction was carried out in accordance with designs of engineer Sharas.
