Power Machines manufacture another turbine for the Siberian Generating Company

Power Machines OJSC has manufactured a 225 MW steam turbine for the forth power unit of Belovskaya TPP operated by Kuzbassenergo JSC (forming part of the Siberian Generating Company Group).

The parties signed a contract to manufacture and supply two 225 MW turbines complete with turbogenerators for the upgrade of Belovskaya TPP in December 2010. According to the contract Power Machines will not only manufacture and supply the turbines, turbogenerators and auxiliary equipment to the plant, but also perform supervision services during the equipment installation and commissioning works. 

The Siberian Generating Company is working on the replacement of two turbines at Belovskaya TPP within the framework of Capacity Supply Agreements (CSA). As the result of this work overaged turbines having total installed capacity of 400 MW will be replaced at power units No. 4 and No. 6. 

Unit No. 4 is to be put into operation in December 2013 and unit No. 6 – in the end of 2014. The upgrade will allow to improve the plant’s reliability, as well as to increase the volumes of production of electrical energy required for the further development of the region. 

Earlier, in July this year, Power Machines completed to manufacture a 220 MW packaged turbogenerator complete with auxiliary equipment for unit No. 4 of Belovskaya TPP. At present Power Machines production facilities continue manufacturing the second turbine and the second turbogenerator. The equipment deliveries are scheduled to be completed in June 2013. 

In addition to the two turbines for Belovskaya TPP, Power Machines will produce the equipment to implement investment projects at other two power plants belonging to Kuzbassenergo – Tom-Usinskaya TPP and Novokuznetskaya GTPP (being built at the site of Kuznetskaya CHP plant). The works at these sites are to be completed in 2013. At present the power plant engineering group has manufactured and shipped the first 120 MW turbine for Tom-Usinskaya TPP and the first turbogroup for unit No. 14 of Novokuznetskaya GTPP to the client. 

TKZ Krasny Kotelshchik OJSC (forming part of Power Machines OJSC) also takes part in the project for the upgrade of Belovskaya and Tom-Usinskaya TPPs by manufacturing and supplying 12 high pressure heaters as well as four fast-response protection devices for them to the plants.
