On occasion of successful putting into warranty operation of the first power unit at India’s new Kudankulam NPP outfitted with Power Machines’ equipment, Atomstroyexport CJSC, the main contractor of the power plant construction, addressed a Letter of Appreciation to the Russian company to thank it for successful work during installation and commissioning of the turbine and generator.
In 2004 – 2005, Power Machines OJSC delivered two complete high-speed steam turbines with capacity of 1,000 MW each, two turbogenerators with similar capacity, and also auxiliary equipment to the Kudankulam NPP construction site in India. The equipment was manufactured and delivered under the terms and conditions of the contract entered into with Atomstroyexport CJSC in 2002.
The first power unit at India’s new Kudankulam NPP was put into warranty operation on 27 December 2014, which was preceded by signing the power unit’s provisional acceptance certificate by the contractor, CJSC Atomstroyexport, and the customer, Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited.
Power Machines’ turbines with capacity of 1,000 MW are among the most high-capacity high-speed steam turbines currently in operation at nuclear power plants. The so-called ‘1,000,000’s’ manufactured by Power Machines OJSC have been installed and successfully operated in Russia (the third and fourth power units at Kalininskaya NPP), Ukraine (two power units at Rovenskaya NPP, two power units at Khmelnitskaya NPP and a power unit at Yuzhno-Ukrainskaya NPP), as well as in China (two power units at Tianwan NPP).
The enterprises, having been operated by Russia’s largest power engineering company for more than four decades, design and manufacture high-tech equipment for nuclear power plant applications. Power Machines OJSC is currently the only Russian company that offers packaged supply of basic thermal and mechanical equipment for NPP’s turbine island. The equipment by the St. Petersburg-based company has been installed at 27 nuclear power plants worldwide.
