Power Machines continue to upgrade and enhance its production capacities

In 2017, more than 2.4 billion rubles have been allocated for the upgrade and enhancement of the machine park. The volume of the investment program of Power Machines GC during 2013 - 2017 amounted to about 12 billion rubles.

New machine tools have been successfully implemented at the company's production sites, including CNC turning lathe, CNC milling and processing center, flatbed plotter, and welding equipment. Moreover, the company commissioned a wide range of various quality control equipment. The upgrade of the machine park allows to significantly reduce labor intensity, as well as to increase the speed and quality of production operations.

At the same time, within the framework of the project for the creation of innovative product, that is, the first Russian half-speed turbine with the capacity of 1,255 MW, designed for Kursk NPP-2, Power Machines puts a number of unique advanced equipment into operation. The investments of Power Machines into the capacities for the production of half-speed items have become a significant contribution to the promising direction of global and domestic power engineering.

Priority investment projects belong to the following areas:

1. Techniques:

- Designing the first Russian half-speed steam turbine for NPPs, fitting up the production with the introduction of innovative technical solutions;

- Enhancement and reconstruction of machine tools.

2.Industrial safety enhancement.

3. Improvement of energy efficiency.

4. The development of information technologies, including the implementation of ERP enterprise management system, modern software and computing tools, 3D design techniques.
