Power Machines manufactured first hydrogenerator for Kygy HPP, Turkey

Power Machines manufactured and shipped the first 46.6 MW hydrogenerator for Kygy HPP being under construction in Turkey. The equipment is scheduled to be delivered to the power plant site in May this year.

The contract for manufacture and procurement of the hydraulic equipment destined for Kygy HPP being constructed in the Elazig Province was signed by Power Machines and the Turkish company DSI (Directorate for State Hydraulic Works of the General State Agency for Water Resources under the Ministry for Forestry and Hydraulic Works) in December 2013.

Pursuant to the contract, Power Machines shall manufacture and supply HPP electromechanical equipment on a turnkey basis, including three hydroturbines of 46.6 MW each complete with pre-turbine gates, three generators of similar capacity, all electromechanical equipment for the machine hall and a switchgear. The project will terminate with the power plant’s three hydraulic units commissioning scheduled for 2016.

Currently, works to manufacture three turbines and two hydrogenerators are being carried out at production facilities of Power Machines.

Power Machines’ participation in the Kygy HPP construction project represents a continuation of the successful activity conducted by the Russian power engineering company in Turkey. For example, in 2008, Power Machines implemented an equipment supply and installation supervision project for Torul HPP.

Earlier, in 1980s, Leningradsky Metallichesky Zavod and Eleсtrosila, which are parts of Power Machines, manufactured and supplied a steam turbine complete with a generator for Orhaneli TPP, as well as two steam turbines for Iskenderun TPP in Turkey. Also, Taganrog’s Krasny Kotelshchik Boiler-Making Plant, a part of Power Machines, supplied six boilers for the power plant’s six power units in 1970s.

The company’s regional branch has operated in Turkey since 2003.
