Power Machines OJSC manufactured and tested a turbogenerator with capacity of 125 MW destined for Raahe TPP’s power unit, which is currently under construction.
The results of comprehensive tests proved that main electrical parameters conform to their design values, and that the turbogenerator fully meets the requirements stipulated in appropriate regulatory and technical documents. Shipment of the turbogenerator is scheduled for September of current year.
A contract that contemplates manufacture and supply of power equipment for Raahe TPP’s new power unit was signed between the Consortium of Power Machines OJSC and Energico Oy, on the one part, and Ruukki Oy, on the other part. The contract signing was preceded by a tender which was won by the Russian-Finnish consortium, consisting of Energico Oy, Finland – the consortium’s leader – and Power Machines OJSC.
Under the terms of the contract, Power Machines OJSC shall design, manufacture and supply a 125 MW steam turbine complete with a turbogenerator to the customer. Furthermore, the Russian power engineering company is to perform installation supervision, commissioning and startup works for the equipment supplied. The Finnish consortium partners are to supply auxiliary equipment and carry out installation works.
The launch of the new power unit is scheduled for 2016.
As a result of the implementation of the second power unit construction project, the capacity of Raahe TPP will amount to 125 MW, while the turbine set of the first power unit will be put on standby and preserved.
Currently, a 50 MW power unit is being operated at Raahe TPP. Its main equipment (turbine and generator) was produced by Leningradsky Metallichesky Zavod and Electrosila, which are parts of Power Machines OJSC, in 1950s.
