Russia manufactured and shipped two high-pressure preheaters to be installed at the machine hall of Kudankulam Unit 3.
The preheaters were manufactured at ZIO-Podosk plant – subsidiary of AtomEnergoMash (Rosatom). Installation will be performed by representatives of the manufacturer. Each reactor unit will have four high-pressure preheaters.
According to the delivery schedule, the equipment will arrive at Kudankulam in April. The two preheaters will be first delivered to the Saint Petersburg sea port and then transported by ship over the Baltic and Mediterranean Seas, through the Suez Canal and over the Red Sea to the Indian Ocean.
AtomEnergoMash will supply core equipment (steam generators, main circulation pumps, pressurizers, main circulation pipes, valves and auxiliary pumps) for the nuclear islands and machine halls of Kudankulam Units 3 and 4.
