Novovoronezh NPP-2 (general designer and general contractor — JSC "AEP", Moscow) at the regular place of installation of the latest large-sized element of the turbine unit number 1.
Turbine — the unit where the thermal energy of steam (temperature about 300 degrees and the pressure 6.8 MPa) is converted into mechanical energy of rotation of the rotor, and is already on the generator — into electrical energy. Weight of the machine when assembled — more than 2,600 tons, length — 52 meters.
The engine room of the first major work on the power turbine installation completed the operation to close the last of the four low-pressure cylinder (LPC). The design weight of 70 tons has been installed on a regular place in the turbine hall mark of 16.00 meters.
The next stage of specialists will start assembling the turbine lubrication oil lines and turbine generator.
The turbine, mounted on the Novovoronezh NPP-2 — the first in Russia greyhound (3 thousand revolutions per minute) with a capacity of 1,200 MW. This innovative design, created specifically for the new generation of nuclear power plants being constructed under the project "NPP-2006".
