PJSC "EMAlliance" being a part of the largest power machine building group of companies in Russia Power Machines and General Designer LLP "Emet- Trade" (Pavlodar) entered into the contract on supply of the heat exchange equipment within modernization of Unit № 2 of Ekibastuzskaya GRES-1– the largest thermal power plant included in the consolidated power system of Kazakhstan. The design capacity of the power facility is– 4000 МW.
The equipment delivered under the project will be manufactured in accordance with the technical specifications developed by the engineering center of PJSC "EMAlliance" (Taganrog). The manufacture will be concentrated on the main production facility of the company – the Taganrog Boiler Making Works "Krasny Kotelchschik". The time of performance of the contract is February, 2014.The weight of the manufactured products is – 530 tones.
Putting into operation of the equipment manufactured by "EMAlliance" will allow to improve the efficiency of the turbine plant operation and eliminate the repair cost of the overaged equipment.
Within the contract limits "EMAlliance" will design and supply three ПВ-1800-37(high pressure heaters) and a set of fast-acting protection system for the group ПВ-1800-37, as well as a high pressure deaerator ДП-2000/150. Design and detailed technical documentation for the deaerator ДП-2000/150 will be developed in cooperation with JSC "SPA ZKTI" (Saint-Petersburg).
In accordance with the project terms HPHs will be equipped with the group overflow protection which will allow to protect the turbine from feed water spreading at increasing of the condensate level in the heater body. The deaerator in its turn will permit to remove more effectively the corrosive gases (oxygen and free carbon dioxide) from steam generators feed water.
The energy market of Kazakhstan is a strategic on for the group of companies Power Machines. The equipment manufactured by the power machine building company is well known and successfully operates on the largest thermal power plants of the republic, among them Ekibastuzskaya GRES-1and GRES-2, Karagandinskaya GHTC, GRES JSC “Eurasia energy corporation”, Ust’-Kamenogorskaya, Balhashskaya and Jezkazganskaya TPSs.
Earlier Power Machines OJSC, under the terms of the contract concluded in April 2011, delivered two power-operated turbines with the capacity 11 MW each manufactured by Kaluga Turbine Works OJSC for the second power unit of Ekibastuzskaya GRES-1. At the present time the turbine generator with the capacity 500 MW for the same unit is in the process of manufacture. The shipment of the turbine generator is expected in the second quarter 0f 2013. Along with the new equipment delivery Power Machines OJSC repaired and supplied seven low pressure rotors (LPR) for Ekibastuzskaya GRES-1 in the period since 2006 to 2012 and also manufactured a new high pressure rotor for steam turbines with the capacity 500 MW forming part of the plant units.
