For the first time in Russia, the Ural Turbine Works has manufactured a turbine for the waste incineration plants of the RT-Invest Company
The first of four new series turbines from the Ural Turbine Works (a ROTEC member) was delivered to the customer – RT-Invest, which is building modern incinerators in the Moscow Region. Each of these machines, having a pre-installed digital prognostic system, will process household waste, providing more than 250,000 Moscow Region residents with heat and electricity.
The barring ceremony – as the machine builders call the final turbine tests indicating its complete readiness to be handed over to the customer – was attended by Minister for Industry and Science of the Sverdlovsk Region Sergey Perestoronin, CEO of RT-Invest Andrey Shipelov, CEO of AGK-1 Igor Timofeev, Chairman of the Board of Directors of UTW Mikhail Lifshitz, as well as heads of leading Russian generating companies.
“Creating a fully Russian turbine allows us to avoid using expensive imported equipment. A universal platform offered by UTW for this machines series means we can commission new turbines with a capacity of up to 100 MW more quickly and at lower cost. Furthermore, the new development can be used not only at waste disposal facilities, but also in the conventional power industry, as a part of combined cycle gas and steam power plants,” Vasiliy Osmakov, Deputy Minister for Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, said at the ceremony.
“Even now, the real volume of domestic equipment at RT-Invest plants will reach over 60%, instead of the 50% approved previously. Power Island, the heart of the plant, will completely consist of Russian equipment. The Ural Turbine Works has developed a new axial-exhaust turbine platform for the “Waste-to-Energy” project. Today, we have taken delivery of the first new series turbine – Kp-77-6,8 for a plant in Voskresensky District of Moscow Region. Three more units are already being manufactured and will be installed at waste disposal plants under construction in the Moscow Region. The project has resulted in creation of a turbine in demand not only at other energy facilities of the energy sector of the Russian Federation, but also abroad. Our technology partner, Hitachi Zosen Inova, has already confirmed its interest in purchasing this equipment for new projects abroad. Thus, the modern waste disposal facilities construction provides an impetus to development of Russian technologies of all levels in demand not only on the Russian market but globally as well,” said Andrey Shipelov, CEO of RT-Invest JSC.
“We are pleased to cooperate with RT-Invest and feel confident that the brand-new turbine, designed to process waste into energy, will be much appreciated by our partners. Commissioning this machine will help solve the environmental problems of the Moscow Region. We have built a state-of-the-art turbine with unsurpassed characteristics. Today, many specialists are talking about the digitalization need of Russian industry. So now, the Ural Turbine Works has long finished theorizing and is equipping each of its machines with digital prognostic and monitoring systems, allowing the equipment to be operated efficiently, predictably and safely,” said Mikhail Lifshitz, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Ural Turbine Works.
The new series axial-exhaust turbine has been designated Kp-77-6,8 (with 77 MW capacity). This model comes with an air condensing unit, which allows to eliminate completely any negative impact on the local water ecosystem.
The RT-Invest Group of Companies was founded in 2012 supported by the Rostec State Corporation to make direct investments throughout the territory of the Russian Federation and abroad in the sectors of cutting-edge industrial technologies, including waste management, information systems, transport telematics and building materials production.
The company is working to create an integrated waste management system in Russia, based on domestic technologies and the experience of the world's leading countries that have achieved the best environmental performance.
