Shaft turning tests have been performed and the certificate for completion of PR-30-90/10/1,2 turbine assembly at the test facility for Ulan-Ude CHPP-1 has been signed at Ural Turbine Works (member of ROTEC holding) in the presence of the client TGC-14 PJSC representatives. The equipment is being prepared for shipment to the client.
The turbine will replace the obsolete one that has been in operation at the plant since 1964. This renewal will result in higher reliability of electricity and heat supply for the capital of the Republic of Buryatia, and higher technical and economic performance of the CHPP. A state-of-the-art turbine control system will enable flexibility in its operation in different modes. Moreover, its design solutions will increase its performance in district heating modes, which is of critical importance considering the climatic features of the area.
"The tests have brought good results. The plant is performing its obligations. The actual values of all of the parameters of the turbine comply with those specified in the contract. Our choice of Ural Turbine Works as the turbine manufacturer for our project was sound. The plant has undertaken to supply the equipment within the very short timeframe that we requested," says Yuri Dorfman, Acting First Deputy Director General of TGC-14 PJSC for Technical Policy.
"We intend to actively participate in the further development of the power industry in this Siberian region, and specifically, in the project for TGC-14," says Igor Sorochan, Director General of Ural Turbine Works.
It is worth noting that Ural Turbine Works have already participated in renewal of Ulan-Ude CHPP-1: Tp-100/110-8,8 steam turbine was supplied to it back in 2009.
TGC-14 PJSC operates in the electricity generation and sales market in Zabaykalsky Krai and the Republic of Buryatia. It has 7 CHPPs and 2 power complexes with 649.57 MW installed electricity capacity and 3,120.77 Gkal/h heat capacity. Ulan-Ude CHPP-1 is the oldest power plant in Buryatia Generation branch of TGC-14 PJSC.
