Yuri Nosov, Chief Designer of Rosenergoatom Concern's branch Beloyarsk Nuclear Power Plant, has sent a recognition letter to Roman Filippov, Power Machines' General Director, in which he thanked the company's engineers and specialists who were engaged in design, manufacture, supply and installation supervision of the NPP equipment.
The letter states: "The installation, commissioning and startup works have been completed in a qualitative and timely manner, and ensured all the specified technical characteristics of the turbine unit thanks to your strong experience, expertise and commitment".
As part of the construction project for a new Beloyarsk NPP power unit, Power Machines' specialists designed, manufactured and supplied a 885 MW steam turbine complete with a 890 MW turbogenerator and auxiliary equipment, supervised the installation of the equipment and managed the commissioning and startup.
Power Unit 4 of Beloyarsk NPP equipped with a fast-neutron reactor is an innovative Russian design in nuclear power engineering. It has monobloc arrangement that provides for a single high-capacity turbine in conjunction with a hydrogen-free turbogenerator characterized by high efficiency, heat-up margin and safety.
Power Unit 4 was connected to the grid on December 10, 2015. The program of works for power start-up at 50% capacity was completed on January 29, 2016. The power unit started operating at full capacity on August 18, 2016.
The contract for supply of the machine hall primary equipment package for the Beloyarsk NPP power unit (with the BN-800 reactor plant) under construction was signed by Power Machines and Engineering Company ZIOMAR (a company of the Rosatom Machine-Building Division - Atomenergomash) in 2007.
