FNTPP: supplies of the basic equipment have been over

Two TK-35/38-3,4 steam turbine plants produced by Kaluga Turbine Plant OJSC for the floating nuclear power unit Academician Lomonosov under construction, were delivered to Baltic Plant of St. Petersburg yesterday, on May 19.

Cogeneration turbines provide not only electric power production, but also heat supply. This is especially important for the North regions, where the floating power units are planned to be operated. At that heat production is regulated in quite wide limits, providing the opportunity of solving various production problems.

Due to the turbines’ large size and weight, their transportation from Kaluga to St. Petersburg was performed by sea – the Oka, the Moscow River, the Volga, Lake Onega and Lake Ladoga.

Thus, at present the basic equipment supply for the world first floating power unit, the construction of which started on the shipyard of Baltic Plant OJSC in May, 2009, has been over. In June 30, 2010 the power unit was set afloat, and currently outfitting work is being carried out. Commissioning work and the testing of the power unit are scheduled for 2012.

The nominal electric capacity of the power unit, which consists of two KLT-40C reactor units and two TK-35/38-3,4 steam turbine plants is equal to 70 MW. Maximal heating capacity of the power unit can reach 146 Gcal/h.

Vilyuchinsk city of Kamchatka district was selected as the placement point for the main plant. The main plant put into operation is scheduled for 2013.
