Power Machines OJSC manufactures and completes shipment of first hydropower unit for RusHydro’s Nizhne-Bureyskaya HPP

Power Machines OJSC manufactured and completed shipment of a hydropower unit with capacity of 80 MW destined for Nizhne-Bureyskaya HPP being under construction.

The supply contract for four 80 MW hydropower units for Nizhne-Bureyskaya HPP was signed between Nizhne-Bureyskaya HPP" OJSC (RusHydro’s subsidiary) and Power Machines OJSC in October 2013.

Pursuant to the contract, Power Machines OJSC will design, manufacture and supply four sets of hydropower equipment to the customer, each set consisting of an adjustable-blade hydroturbine complete with an automatic control system, a hydrogenerator complete with an excitation system, and also auxiliary equipment for the hydropower units. In addition, Power Machines OJSC will install the hydropower units at the HPP.

The hydropower units of Nizhne-Bureyskaya HPP are scheduled to be commissioned in 2016.

Specific features of this project include environmentally safe design of the hydroturbines – the hydroturbines’ runner cavity is designed oil-free, so that oil leaks into water are eliminated.

The following hydroturbine components have so far been delivered to the HPP construction site: embedded pipelines (4 sets), mounting tools for linings and embedded parts, flared suction tube linings (4 sets), turbine stator (4 sets), scroll linings (4 sets), turbine pit linings (4 sets) and runner chamber (2 sets). The first hydrogenerator’s stator was also delivered to the HPP construction site.
