Commissioned in late July (July 24), a new Vladimir TPP-2 230MW combined-cycle plant has already generated about 150 million kWh of electric power.
The Vladimir TPP-2 reconstruction investment project was implemented under a large-scale Integrated Power Systems CJSC investment program providing for putting over 3.2GW of new capacity in operation till 2017. The steam turbine plant was supplied for the new power generating unit, and engineering support services were provided for the Vladimir project by ROTEC holding.
Environmental friendliness and energy efficiency are an important characteristic of the new power facility.
Mikhail Lifshits, Director General, ROTEC CJSC: "The design specific fuel consumption for power generation are 18% at the new Vladimir TPP-2 power generating unit, and that for heat generation are 9% lower as compared to the average specific indicators of the TGC-6 circuit plants. Thus, a substantial increase in generation capacity efficiency can be ascertained. These characteristics are provided by modern equipment and technologies. In particular, the steam turbine plants manufactured by our Ural Turbine Works for TPP reconstruction projects in Vladimir, Kirov, and other cities are a specifically designed turbine model for the combined cycle."
ROTEC currently continues providing an engineering support to five major investment projects totaling 1,470MW. The Ural Turbine Works equipment similar to that installed at the Vladimir TPP-2 will be also installed at the Akademicheskaya TPP in Yekaterinburg, Novoberezniki TPP and Nizhniaya Tura TPP.
