Kaluga Turbine Works (KTZ) company, member of Power Machines Concern, made the 64 MW steam turbine for Pervomaiskaya CHP-14 in St. Petersburg (a part of TGC-1). This is already the second system of the type.
Power Machines signed a contract for equipment procurement for two 180 MW CCGT units in 2007. Pursuant to the contract the company is to supply two steam turbines, 64 MW each, two turbo-generators, four packaged gas-turbine units and auxiliary equipment. Furthermore, the contract stipulates installation supervision and technical management of start-up operations.
In August 2009, KTZ manufactured and shipped the first Т-50/64 turbine, which opened a new high-capacity production line of steam turbines produced by the enterprise. Design of this unit is based on the extensive engineering experience gained by the plant over its more than 60-year history. A state-of-the-art project was developed by KTZ’s engineers for the Т-50/64 turbine: its throttle sprinkling device allows to feed both high and low pressure steam to the condenser aside from turbine. When manufacturing equipment for Pervomaiskaya CHP-14, KTZ used its innovative technologies, and also designed and built a new test stand at its production facility.
