Kaluga Turbine Works (KTZ), branch of Power Machines, shipped steam turbine of 27 MW capacity for Viru Keemia Grupp slate plant in Kohtla-Jarve, Estonia.
Contract for manufacture and supplies of ПТ-27/29 turbine was signed between KTZ and Ekobana (Lithuania) in July 2007. The price of the contract is over 2,5 million Euro.
The project is a result of successful cooperation of Power Machines and Ekobana, a supplier of equipment for industrial enterprises in the CIS. Beginning from 2004 Power Machines together with the Lithuanian customer realized several projects on supplies of power eqiopment and spare parts for power plants in the Baltic region such as Panivezhisk Heat Network and chemical plant Lifosa (Lithuania).
The turbine to be installed at the TPP in the territory of Viru Keemia Grupp slate plant is a development of a set of steam turbines of KTZ production of 25-35 MW capacity that make the basis of the native turbine production. These turbines operate at small and medium size plants in the territory of the Russian Federation.
The peculiarity of design of such turbines is that they have regulated steam extraction which allows to lead the exhaust steam to the final consumer.
