Power Machines completed an upgrade of power units at the largest thermal power plant in Central Asia
Power Machines completed its operations to upgrade power units No. 9 and No. 10 of the Syrdarya TPP.
The final stage was the upgrade of power unit No. 9 of the Syrdarya TPP. With the connection of the power unit to the power grid of the Republic of Uzbekistan, a full-scale upgrade of the largest thermal power plant in Central Asia was completed.
The work was performed under the EPC contract signed by JSC “Power machines” and Syrdarya TPP, pursuant to the Order of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan “On measures for phased upgrade of the power units of Syrdarya TPP.”
In 2013, Power Machines won a tender for the upgrade of the first two units, No. 1 and No. 2. The company successfully completed the project in 2015, increasing the capacity of power units to 325 MW. Based on the results of that project, in 2016, the customer decided to enter into a contract with Power Machines for the upgrade of six more units of the Syrdarya TPP.
The work was performed in three stages. The first stage was implemented in 2019, when power units Nos. 3 and 4 were put into operation, both equipped with equipment from Power Machines. At the second stage, power units Nos. 5 and 6 were put into service. The final stage was the connection of power units Nos. 9 and No. 10 to the grid in 2021.
Power Machines performed a comprehensive upgrade of turbine, generator, boiler and auxiliary equipment at all power units, introduced automatic process control systems, retrofitted the automatic control system, and completed a set of construction and installation works, commissioning, and installation supervision.
Produced by the Russian facilities of "Leningradsky Metallichesky Zavod" plant "Electrosila" TKZ "Krasny Kotelshchik" Kaluga Turbine Plant, the equipment has improved performance that meets reliability and safety requirements. The service life of the supplied turbine components is 40 years.
Implementation of the project will reduce the shortage of electricity in the country, ensure more sustainable operation of the energy system of Uzbekistan, and positively affect the economic performance of the region.
