On 10 December, the first of two generators was delivered to the Armenian Nuclear Power Plant by Rusatom Service.
The new machine will replace the old generator manufactured in the 1970s. Along with the turbine generator, the contractor will replace auxiliary systems as provided for in the nuclear plant life extension contract. The turbine generator was produced by Power Machines, the world’s Top 10 company in terms of machinery installed. The second turbine generator will be delivered to the nuclear power plant in December 2018. In addition, Rusatom Overseas signed two contracts with Bulgaria’s Kozloduy NPP to supply systems and equipment for Units 5 and 6 in 2018. The scope of delivery includes spare parts for the reactor rod control systems (RCS). The function of RCS is to control fission reaction in the core and, consequently, reactor power. Rusatom Service will also deliver spare parts for the instrumentation and control (I&C) systems and the centralized radiation measurement and control systems to be used during the forthcoming preventive repairs. These systems ensure safe operation of the nuclear power plant and monitor radiation doses and exposure.
