Taganrog Boiler-Making Works (TKZ) "Krasny Kotelshchik", which is a part of Power Machines, has successfully passed the recertification audit and confirmed the production output availability according to the ASME standards (American Society of Mechanical Engineers), which greatly extends the enterprise capabilities in the market of power equipment.
First the certification audit for compliance with the ASME requirements was held at TKZ in 2000. Since then, Krasny Kotelshchik confirms it every three years. Availability of ASME certificates is not only an indicator of the enterprise engineering level, as well as its high workability but also a competitive advantage in the international market.
Development of cooperation with foreign partners is one of the key priorities of Power Machines. The company aims to expand its presence in Latin America, South and South-East Asia.
At present Power Machines is performing turnkey construction of the thermal power plant in Vietnam in consortium with a Vietnamese corporate partner. Total capacity of TPP "Long Fu-1" under construction is 1200 MW. Krasny Kotelshchik is at work upon manufacturing boilers and heat exchange equipment for the future Vietnamese site.
"Availability of current valid ASME certificates and "S", "U" and "U2" brand marks was of great importance for the TKZ selection as a boiler equipment supplier, allowing to produce boilers and pressure vessels, namely, high and low pressure heaters deaerators in accordance with the code requirements," – says Konstantin Zhukov, Boiler project Chief Designer of TPP "Long Fu-1".
The contract for turnkey construction of Thermal Power Plant "Long Fu-1" with a total capacity of 1200 MW was concluded in January 2015 between Vietnamese company Vietnam Oil and Gas Group (Petrovietnam in abbreviated form) and International Consortium PM-PTSC, which consists of Power Machines and Petrovietnam Technical Services Corporation (Vietnam). Power Machines is the leader of this Consortium.
