At the Kolomna plant successfully completed interdepartmental tests (MVI) of the new diesel generator DGU3200 developed and manufactured by OAO "Atomenergomash" for back-up power system under construction unit number 4 Beloyarsk — Russia’s only nuclear power reactors on fast neutrons.
DGU3200 recommended for production and use at the customer. Chairman of the Commission, Boris Berezovsky, a representative of Kola NPP, said: "The presented diesel generator set DGU3200 number one survived the acceptance test, the results of which confirmed its compliance with the customer’s specifications."
Under the terms of the contract signed in December 2010, JSC "Kolomna plant" must carry a complete supply of eight diesel-generator sets DGU4000 consisting of two, three and three DGU3200 DGU500. Power plants of 4000 kW, 3200kVt, 500 kW, respectively. The motors are designed for reliable power supply in the event of a nuclear emergency situation. DGU3200 scheduled for delivery by the end of September. The chief designer of Mechanical Engineering JSC "Kolomna plant" Valery Ryzhov said: "As the power plant is designed for DSU 16CHN26/26 engine, the design of which used the experience to back motors for nuclear power plant in Bushehr and 10D49 engines for naval ships. Automation systems allow provide a full range of work in automatic mode without attendants. "
The Russian government intends in 2030 to increase the share of nuclear power generation in total electricity production up to 25-30%. Today it is 16%. It is planned to build 26 nuclear power units. JSC "Kolomna plant" has the license to design and manufacture equipment for nuclear power plants and the reference for the production of diesel generator for nuclear power plants. In 2004, the company has made a brand new, fully automated power plant second-class security "Busher-1" in Iran, which has been tested and confirmed compliance with RD EO 0052-00, and the American standard IEEEStd387-1995 applicable to nuclear Energy.
Currently Kolomna plant is the sole producer in Russia backup diesel generators for nuclear power plants.
