Ural Turbine Works will supply Quadra PJSC with three turbines as part of a government-supported program to upgrade its generating capacity

9 March 2022

Ural Turbine Works has signed a contract to supply three T-130 turbines for the implementation of СSA-dash (Capacity Supply Agreement) projects at Quadra PJSC power plants. T-130/145-12.8 turbines will be delivered to Smolenskaya CHPP-2 – the first unit in 3Q 2022 and the second in 2Q 2023; T-130/150-12.8 turbine for Tambovskaya CHPP is scheduled for production and shipment in 3Q 2023.

State-of-the-art and powerful turbine units will replace equipment of the 1970–80s, which has reached the end of its service life. Due to the equipment replacement, the rated electric capacity of Smolenskaya CHPP-2 will increase by 16 % up to 320 MW, and its heat capacity — by 3 % up to 774 Gcal/h. At Tambovskaya CHPP, the power plant’s most powerful turbine unit will be replaced; as a result, the electric capacity of the facility will increase up to 255 MW (+ 8 %) and its heat capacity — up to 959 Gcal/h (+ 2 %). The modernization of the power plants’ equipment will ensure reliable operation of the energy systems in these regions and enhance the efficiency and competitiveness of the power plants in the wholesale energy market.

The Т-130 turbine is a modern succession of the T-100 family of cogeneration turbines with a number of design and circuit updates to improve the units’ reliability, efficiency and maneuverability. A significant increase in rated capacity can be achieved through optimizing the entire set of blades of the flow section with enhanced power generation efficiency. In addition to regulated heat removal, the turbine also provides for removal that fully supplies steam for power plants’ own needs. Noteworthy, this up-to-date turbine modification will appear increasingly at upgraded power plants in Russia.

UTW is currently involved in many of the country’s energy modernization projects implemented under СSA-dash (Capacity Supply Agreement). Turbine units are in various stages of manufacture or installation for T Plus, Mosenergo, TGC-1, SGC, LUKOIL, NHRS and a number of other companies.
