The specialists of "Turboatom" have created a new high-performance rotary-blade impeller with a diameter of 6 m and an updated blade system equipped with guide vanes with new blades with improved profile.

After the reconstruction of hydroelectric power will increase from 19.2 MW to 21 MW, the efficiency will increase by 4%, and improve environmental safety and service life of the turbine.

This is the latest hydraulic unit which upgraded the company. In just 15 years old at the Kiev hydropower plant undertook the modernization of 20 units of a unit capacity of 19 MW, the start of the first was held in 1998.

  "Turboatom" upgraded machine for blade production "Turboatom" completed the modernization of vertical milling machine GF-2171 in blade workshop (№ 55). At this stage, the company's specialists carry out commissioning. Before the end of the month the equipment will be put into operation.

During the reconstruction of the machine have been installed new engines, a modern CNC system of the German company Siemens, major overhaul of the mechanical part of the replacement of nodes that have perished, has two additional axes.

After upgrading the GF-2171 have the opportunity to carry out the processing of the circular profile of the rotor blades of steam turbines for all four coordinates, which previously was not provided. Furthermore, it was possible to improve the quality, accuracy and surface finish of parts, as well as in two times to reduce production cycle and reduce tooling.

As the chief engineer of JSC "Turboatom" Gregory Ishchenko, in the last 5 years in the shop number 55 modernized and bought 15 pieces of equipment. "Due to the increase in production volumes in 2013 in blade workshop is planned to repair the machine and get 3 2 measuring machines for profile control of steam turbine blades," he said.

In addition, after the upgrade will increase the speed of processing of parts, which in turn will reduce production tsiklov.Vvod equipment is scheduled within 16 months from the date of signing the contractUkraine takes part in the construction of the reactor of the future     

 Nuclear reactors on fast neutrons, unlike the current thermal reactors (nuclear thermal reactors) — a technology of the future."Turboatom" produce and deliver a prototype model of steam turbine for nuclear power plants with a fast neutron reactor with lead-bismuth coolant MTBF 100. The plant will be built in the town of Dimitrovgrad, Ulyanovsk region in Rossii.Opyt work "Turboatom" in the field of nuclear energy, including in Russia, as well as reputation, references and the best technical and commercial offer enterprises have become the main arguments for the choice of the customer and approval of the manufacturer turbiny.V early February 2013 a group of companies "KomplektEnergo" (Russia), representing the interests of "Turboatom", entered into an agreement with a joint public-private enterprise "AKME-engineering" to develop, manufacture and supply of steam turbine with additional equipment for the development of industrial power (OPEB) reactor MTBF 100. The relevant contract with "KomplektEnergo" to be signed in February 2013 goda.Soglasno contract, the plant will develop and deliver a turbine capacity of 100 MW with two cylinders (high and low pressure), the capacitor-type basement with cooling tubes and accessories. In addition, the specialists of "Turboatom" will execute the design, supervision and will take part in the commissioning rabotah.Sroki supply equipment — 4th quarter 2015. According to the customer's physical and power plant startup is scheduled for 2017 god.SVBR-100 is a pilot project in the nuclear industry and is implemented within the framework of the federal target program "Nuclear power a new generation for the period 2010-2015 and until 2020" and is included in the The number of projects of the Commission for Modernisation and Technological Development of Russian Economy under the RF President in the direction of the "New Technology Platform: closed fuel cycle and fast breeder reactors." It is planned to build a series of these units. The customer of the project — the Russian company "AKME-engineering."http://www.turboatom.com.ua/press/news/2196.htmlThe principal feature of the MTBF-100 is used as a coolant of bismuth and lead. We recall that at the present time in Russia at Beloyarsk is in commercial operation fast neutron reactor BN-600, which uses liquid sodium as a coolant, and the same is constructed BN-800.Krome addition, as part of the "breakthrough" in Russia on Seversky area chemical plant in the Tomsk region bude constructed fast reactor with lead coolant capacity of 300 MW. Together with the reactor at Seversk-station will be set up nuclear fuel cycle for the preparation and processing of the fuel for the future reaktora.Primenenie in fast reactors liquid metal coolant instead of water (which is used in the existing pressurized water reactors), due to higher loads in the active the reactor core and their work in the higher temperature rezhimah.Osnovnoe advantage of the fast reactor before the heat is more efficient use of fuel. For example, if the heat capacity of the reactor uses nuclear fuel by only 4% in the form of combustion isotope uranium-235, the fast reactor can convert and engage in the process of nuclear fission in the fuel remaining 96% uranium-238. That is, the so-called "spent fuel" that Ukraine after its use in nuclear power plants, garbage deposited in Russia, can then be used for processing and loading as fresh fuel in fast reactors. After all, 96% of the uranium in fuel assemblies (FAs) discharged from nuclear reactors — it's not radioactive waste, but a valuable fuel product that can be burned in reactors IV pokoleniya.Takim way in the transition from thermal reactors to fast reactors (or as they are called, breeders), stocks of raw uranium for peaceful nuclear energy are virtually inexhaustible let.Krome hundreds of fast reactor can close the nuclear fuel cycle (how much uranium mined from the earth, so many processed), providing natural radiation balance Earth and have a natural security. When using the fast reactor nuclear disaster, like Chernobyl or Fukushima, completely ruled out. That is, even in the case of the most severe accident the entire radiation remains inside the unit and will not go beyond its limits.


At present, the world leader in the development of fast reactors is Russia. At the time, the U.S. president Gerald Ford banned the completion breeder guided by the decisions of the world in the field of non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and materials. A little later, Ford has supported the initiative of the next U.S. president Jimmy Carter. However, the decisions of U.S. presidents were more political.

The fact that the fast breeder reactor produce plutonium, which is used in a nuclear bomb, but get it and remove it from the fuel mix — a task that is hardly feasible for terrorists. Nevertheless, the United States, despite the fact that the breeder reactor stopped, continues to implement programs closed nuclear fuel cycle, and create a dense metallic fuel.

However, returning to the Ukrainian realities, it should be noted that the very fact of signing the "Turboatom" contract to supply turbines for SVBR-100 is a significant positive development. And it's not just the fact that Russia has the potential to establish mass production of lead-bismuth-cooled reactors. For Ukraine, with its most powerful scientific and technological and industrial potential in the field of "peaceful atom" is extremely important not to remain on the sidelines in the era of transition from thermal reactors to fast.

According to the director of "STC" nuclear fuel cycle "Kharkov Institute of Physics and Technology Vladimir Krasnorutskyy, Ukraine needs to develop a medium-and long-term concept of the nuclear fuel cycle for reactors of different types — both current thermal and the future of fast neutrons.

"Ukraine should work together with Russia on fast neutron reactors, as well as on the creation of the production of MOX-fuel for thermal and fast reactors", — said Mr. Krasnorutskyy.
