Kalinin NPP was a trial run turbines

November 18 at 1:00. 40 minutes. at Unit number 4 of the Kalinin nuclear power plant in the stage of "power start" successfully carried out a test run of the turbogenerator.
Test run the turbine and the work of the unit is idling performed at a power level of the reactor plant 30% of the nominal. After the steam turbine generator at the turbine speed has increased to the nominal three thousand.
During the operation, carried out monitoring of thermal mechanical characteristics of the turbine performs its density lock and control valves, automatic security check. The next key step will be the inclusion of the generator unit number 4 in the network.
Kalinin NPP is a branch of JSC "Concern Rosenergoatom". The station is located in the north of the Tver region in Udomlya area. Kalinin nuclear power plant has three power units with pressurized water reactors (VVER-1000) of 1,000 MW each. The construction of the unit number 4 is to be commissioned in 2011.
