The construction of this large power was completed in record time — in just three years.
The new unit is equipped with a 90 percent equipment of Russian origin.
Steam turbine set "Leningrad Metal Plant" generators — Plant "Electric power" (both companies — OAO "Power Machines"). Gas turbines are set up by a consortium «Siemens — Power Machines", the production base is located in St. Petersburg, waste heat boilers are built on the Podolsk Machine Building Plant.
Input power Right Bank thermal power station will greatly enhance the reliability and quality of heat and allow to create a reserve of electrical and thermal power for the development of the south-eastern chastiSankt Petersburg.
Right Bank thermal power station provides heat to industrial enterprises, residential and public buildings and Nevsky Krasnogvardeisky areas. The new unit capacity of 450 MW to work on a combined cycle, which results in significant fuel savings and reduces the load on the environment. It will also enhance the reliability of the energosistemySankt Petersburg as the complex emergency control will not allow any station stop in emergency situations in the area of high voltage.
PGU-450 Right Bank thermal power station — this is the third (after entering the PGU-450 South CHP and two PGU-180 Pervomayskaya CHP), a major construction project on the power of modern technology-based combined-cycle implemented by "Gazprom" for the last few years in St. Petersburg.
