OJSC "Power Machines" has produced and successfully tested a unique high-speed turbine with a full water cooling capacity of 1,200 MW, designed for the first unit of Novovoronezh NPP-2 (NV NPP-2).
Speed steam turbines and turbo-generators with capacity of 1,200 MW of nuclear power — this new development "Power Machines", focused on a new generation of nuclear power units with enhanced reliability and security that are created in the Russian Federation in the framework of the "NPP-2006".
Turbine generators T3V-1200-2, which are designed and manufactured "Power Machines" for NV NPP-2 and Leningrad NPP-2 (LAES-2) are the development of a series of turbine generators with a full water cooling — high-performance turbo-generators for fire and explosion safety of nuclear power plants that have no analogues in the world nuclear power engineering. Fundamentally new design solutions turbine generators have been worked out by specialists of St. Petersburg power engineering concern on machines with capacity of 800 MW, operated for a long time and Perm Ryazan GRES, as well as the capacity of 890 MW turbine generator, manufactured in 2010 for the building under the 4th unit of Beloyarsk.
Contracts to supply a set of basic equipment to equip the machine hall under construction NV NPP-2 and Leningrad NPP-2 were signed between "Power Machines" and OAO "Atomenergoprom" in May 2008. The total contract value is more than 40 billion rubles. At each nuclear power plant will be built on two power units with VVER power capacity of 1,200 MW.
In accordance with the terms of the contracts "Power Machines" should provide the design, manufacture and supply of power for NV NPP-2 and Leningrad NPP-2 four complete turbines, including steam turbines, condensers and ground support equipment turbine systems (heat exchangers and pumps, pipelines and piping necessary rebar), as well as four sets of turbine generators with equipment support systems, excitation system and the agent. In addition, the "Power Machines" will carry out supervision inspection for assembly and start-up works at the nuclear power plant sites around the supplied equipment.
In December 2010 "Power Machines" produced and conducted witness test a prototype model of a new high-speed turbine capacity of 1,200 MW, designed for the first block NV NPP-2. Shipment turbines will begin in the near future, the shipment of the generator is scheduled for later this year. Deadline for the supply of equipment for the second unit of NV NPP-2 — 2013. In addition, the production equipment is the first unit of Leningrad NPP-2, which is scheduled to start shipping in 2011.
NV NPP-2 and Leningrad NPP-2 — is the first nuclear power plant to be built in Russia "from scratch" in the past 15 years.
