After the modernization completed by Power Machines, two power units (No. 3 and No. 4) of the largest power plant in Central Asia successfully passed warranty tests and confirmed the stated uprating indicators up to 325 MW.
As a result of modernization, both power units are now equipped with advanced equipment that has improved performance and meets all the reliability and safety requirements. The service life of newly supplied turbine units is 40 years, while the capacity of each power unit is increased by 25 MW to 325 MW.
In 2020, as part of the second stage, power units No. 5 and 6 will be modernized. As a result of modernization, the rated capacity of power units will increase from 300 to 325 MW, the specific fuel consumption will decrease from 335-340 gr. to 320 gr. per kWh
Currently, Power Machines continues to ship equipment manufactured for the modernization of power units No. 5 and No. 6. All operations are performed in accordance with the schedule and at a high quality level, which is confirmed by experts of regulatory entities.
