Power Machines Finish Shipment of the Most Massive Hydraulic Equipment in Company History

26 august 2017

On August 26, 2017 a unique operation involving shipment of Russia's most massive centrifugal turbine wheels from Leningradsky Metallichesky Zavod was finished on the Sverdlovskaya Embankment in Saint Petersburg. Two turbine wheels intended for the EuroSibEnergo Krasnoyarsk HPP weighing 488 tons in total were removed from the plant in order to be shipped by water to Russia's second most powerful hydraulic power plant located on the Yenisei.

EuroSibEnergo JSC general director

Replacement of the turbine wheels is a new important stage of comprehensive refurbishment of the Krasnoyarsk HPP that will improve the plant’s operational reliability, allow usto use the hydroenergetic resources of the Yenisei more effectively, and to produce more clean energy.

Yuri Petrenya
Power Machines PJSC general director

Manufacturing this equipment was a great challenge for our company. When the Krasnoyarsk HPP was built, wholly welded turbine wheels were used there for the first time in the world, and the primary equipment of the Krasnoyarsk HPP exceeded the world standard. Therefore, decades after the plant was started, we had to design and manufacture turbine wheels meeting new modern standards. This became possible thanks to the company's high design, engineering and production potential.As a result of the modernization, the Krasnoyarsk HPP will operate new turbine wheels with improved output and cavitation parameters meeting modern efficiency standards.

Launch of production of heat exchange equipment for natural gas liquefaction and processing within the framework of a joint venture established by Power Machines and Linde AG

31 may 2017

On May 31, 2017 within the framework of a visiting meeting with Russian metallurgical and machine-building industry enterprises presided by Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Management Committee Gazprom PJSC, Power Machines PJSC, leading Russian power plant engineering company, and The Linde Group, one of the leading gases and engineering companies in the world, started production of heat exchange equipment for natural gas liquefaction and processing.

The Power Machines – Linde AG joint venture project is being implemented with the framework of State import substitution program; it is focused on localization of world-class high-tech products manufacture in Russia.

The JV products are intended for the rapidly growing Russian liquefied natural gas production market. The partner companies' interests in the joint venture are 50%. Whereupon Linde is the technology supplier and Power Machines ensure localization of equipment manufacture.

The Russian-German joint venture will ensure localization of coil-wound heat exchangers for use at production facilities using various natural gas liquefaction and processing technologies. The production was started at the existing production facilities of Power Machines PJSC (Saint Petersburg); whereupon the share of Russian-made components in the equipment will be maximized.

Dr Christian Bruch
Board member Linde AG

– I am very confident in the Russian market and I can say that Linde is now considering the Russian market from the point of view of investment and technology introduction. In connection with difficult political circumstances, I believe that we managed to find a very reliable partner in the person of the company «Power Machines».
