Power Machines completed integrated testing of power unit No. 6 of the Syrdarya TPP

Following modernization performed by Power Machines, the sixth power unit of the largest power plant in Central Asia has successfully passed the stage of integrated testing and is being prepared for commissioning. At the same time, Power Machines experts continue to install the supplied equipment at power unit No. 5.

Performance approval tests of power units No. 5 and No. 6 are scheduled for the period until the end of 2020, with the subsequent commissioning of power units.

Modernization of six power units of the Syrdarya TPP is being carried out in three stages with an increase in the total capacity of the power plant from 1800 to 1950 MW. To date, Power Machines has completed the first stage – power units No. 3 and No. 4 have been put into operation. As a result of modernization in 2019, both power units are now equipped with advanced equipment that has improved performance and meets all the reliability and safety requirements. The service life of the newly installed turbine assemblies is 40 years, while the capacity of each power unit has been increased by 25 MW – to 325 MW.

Completion of the modernization of the largest TPP in Central Asia is scheduled for 2021, during which power units No. 9 and No. 10 will be put into operation.

According to the EPC contract signed between JSC "Power machines" and JSC Syrdarya TPP in accordance with the Order of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan "On measures for stage modernization of the Syrdarya TPP power units", the Russian power engineering company is performing a full-scale modernization of six power units of the plant.

The scope of work performed by Power Machines on a turnkey basis includes comprehensive modernization of the turbine, generator, boiler and auxiliary equipment, introduction of automated process control systems, reconstruction of automatic control systems, a complex of construction and installation as well as supervision work.

The main equipment of power units is manufactured by Russian enterprises: Power Machines, TKZ Krasny Kotelshchik, and Kaluga Turbine Works. 

Implementation of the project will reduce the shortage of electricity in the country, ensure sustainable operation of the energy system of Uzbekistan, and positively affect the economic performance of the region.
