The Ural Turbine Works Added Capacity to the Capital of Kazakhstan

1 April 2021

Comprehensive tests of a T-120/130-130-8MO steam turbine produced by the Ural Turbine Works have been successfully completed at the Astana CHP-2 (Republic of Kazakhstan, Nur-Sultan). The turbine was able to successfully produce the declared capacity to the network. This is the third turbine for this plant. Two similar turbine units were put into operation in 2006 and 2015 and were highly praised by the customer.

Due to the commissioning of the Ural Turbine Works equipment, the installed electric capacity of the plant now amounts to 600 MW (an increase of 360 MW), the thermal capacity now amounts 2,250 Gcal/h (an increase of 564 Gcal/h). This will enable reliable supply of electricity and heat to the dynamically developing capital of Kazakhstan. For example, over the past ten years, the population of Nur-Sultan has doubled. The last decade saw a 20-fold increase in construction, while the gross regional product has tripled.

The T-120/130-130-8MO turbine is an extension of the T-100 steam turbine series. By now, such turbine units are already in operation at six power units in Russia and abroad.

In recent years, the Ural Turbine Works has completed 16 projects in various cities of Kazakhstan, such as Nur-Sultan, Pavlodar, Petropavlovsk, Karaganda, Rudny, Temirtau, and Ust-Kamenogorsk. Eleven new power units were built and five upgrades were made.
