Ural Turbine Works signed a contract with Sevkazenergo for the supply of a T-95 steam turbine for the Petropavlovskaya CHP-2 (Kazakhstan).
Under the contract, the turbine will be transferred to the Kazakhstani party in December 2014. It is the third turbine purchased by the Petropavlovskaya CHP-2 from UTW: currently, the company is assembling a T-50/60 steam turbine while manufacturing a К-63-90 steam turbine.
“We supply the turbines to our colleagues in Kazakhstan under the memorandum of cooperation signed last year between UTW and Central Asian Electric Power Corporation (Kazakhstan),” noted Igor Sorochan, UTW Director General. “Our partners in Kazakhstan have been actively replacing the outdated equipment with new highly efficient machinery. We are glad to be one of the key participants in the modernization program at this facility.”
According to the terms of the memorandum, UTW will supply four new and will upgrade three existing steam turbines installed at the Petropavlovskaya CHP-2 and Pavlodarskaya CHP-3. The cost of the equipment under the signed memorandum was about 120 million USD.
Ural Turbine Works recently designed a two-cylinder turbine T-95 based on the standard models T-120/130 and Tp-115/125. These turbines have proved their cost effectiveness, high reliability and maneuverability. They will replace the worked-out turbine P-33 manufactured by Skoda.
