Power Machines procure energy-generating equipment for Kalininskaya NPP

Power Machines have completed manufacture of condenser for the fourth 1,000 MW power unit of Kalininskaya NPP ahead of schedule.

The condenser, which presents a device used to condense steam from turbines, was manufactured using state-of-the-art technology at production facilities of Turboatomgaz Factory, a site belonging to Power Machines’ Leningradsky Metallichesky Zavod.

Power Machines and Atomenergoprom signed a contract for equipment procurement for the fourth power unit’s 1,000 MW turbo set of Kalininskaya NPP in December 2007. Under the terms of the contract, the condenser was to be procured to the fourth power unit in January 2010. At the Customer’s request, however, procurement of the equipment commenced in August 2009 and was completed in November 2009, so that the works were completed two months in advance of the preset schedule.

At the moment, scheduled works to manufacture the К-1000-60/3000 steam turbine rated at 1,000 MW and the ТVV-1000-2UZ type hydrogen-and-water cooled turbine generator with exciter system continue at Power Machines’ Leningradsky Metallichesky Zavod and Elektrosila. The equipment will be shipped in 2010 as specified in the contract.
