Power Machines OJSC and Risk Engineering Ltd (Bulgaria) have entered into a contract to supply power generating equipment to Sofia thermal power plant. 

Under the terms of the contract Power Machines are to manufacture and supply a 35 MW steam turbine complete with a turbogenerator and auxiliary equipment for the plant’s fifth power unit. Moreover, the St. Petersburg power engineering company’s responsibilities include supervision services during installation of the equipment supplied and training of the plant’s operating staff.
