Atomenergomash participated in POWER-GEN Russia

back to contents

POWER-GEN Russia attracts experts from the whole world. In 2015, despite the developed economic and geopolitical situation, more than 4000 visitors from 60 countries, 115 exhibitors, 450 delegates, 70 speakers from every corner of the globe and more than 100 journalists participated in the exhibition and the conference. 27 sessions were held in total in 3 directions.

In 2015 the exhibition organizer PennWell Corporation decided to change the name: the former exhibition and conference “Russia Power” was called this year as “POWER-GEN Russia”, having joined the successful line of international events under “POWER-GEN” brand in a new and more attractive status. Unique global and Russian innovations of electric generation energy sector were presented on the renewed platform “POWER-GEN Russia” and “HydroVision Russia”.

“We hold POWER-GEN conferences and exhibitions worldwide. We believe that the name change is a sure sign of that our Russian event develops and moves forward. We also believe that this is an straightforward message to the global power industry sector: the scale and importance of the Russian event fully corresponds to our major events — “POWER-GEN International” and “POWER-GEN Europe,” says Heather Johnstone, director of POWER-GEN Russia.

Atomenergomash machine-building company of Rosatom has presented on the joint stand together with its affiliated companies SverdNIIhimmash, ZiO-Podolsk, ZIOMAR, Energomashspetsstal the capabilities on equipment manufacturing for the power industry.

During the conference within «High technologies for steam turbine units» session Alexander Tsvetkov, the technical director of the Russian-France joint venture Alstom Atomenergomash (AAEM), made a report on the subject: “1200 MW turbine plant for an NPP with low-speed turbine ARABELLE — optimized solutions of a turbine island”. He also informed on the ready solution for NPP construction with low-speed turbine ARABELLE in an optimized turbine island offered together with NIAEP, the engineering by company Rosatom, and the largest machine-building company Alstom.

“Universal characteristics and functionality of ARABELLE turbine plant, as well as solutions on equipment integration implemented to maintain the high level of operational readiness and reliability of various systems of the non-nuclear part of NPP make this project certainly unique,” noted Tsvetkov.

He also informed that the contract design of VVER-TOI NPP with VVER reactor is now complete and was transferred the customer. This contract design has an important component — the project of a turbine island (turbine construction). Stages of the detailed design and development of the working design documentation for the project of a turbine island of the Baltic NPP are being implemented. Application of the low-speed technology in the project became possible due to the progressive experimented configuration of ARABELLE turbine plant, which provides for operation with any nuclear reactor type with electric capacity ranging from 1000 MW to 1800 MW. Design features of ARABELLE turbine plant and layout solutions of turbine construction considerably facilitate its installation and service. Major efforts were made on the general configuration of turbine building with the purpose to reduce the cost of construction and to simplify the process of servicing.

Evgenie Kadi-Ogly, the chief designer of AAEM turbogenerators, has presented at the “Generators/electrical engineering” session the report: “Integration of standard Alstom turbogenerator solutions for Russian NPPs”. he described design solutions and technologies of Alstom in the field of GIGATOP 4-pole turbogenerators based on IEC/IEEE and Alstom standards to integrate them at Russian NPPs and adapt to requirements of the Russian regulatory base.

In particular, it was noted that GIGATOP 4-pole turbogenerator presented in the Russian market was designed according to all requirements of the Russian Federation regarding new NPPs. “This machine was designed based on the 35-year-old experience of successful operation and provides the customer with high reliability, high power indicators, low expenses for operation and maintenance service. The performed design and expert works confirmed that characteristics of the four-pole turbogenerator GIGATOP 4-pole and its corresponding systems developed by Alstom and delivered to AAEM (in particular, for the Baltic NPP project), comply with requirements of the Russian Federation standards,” said Kadi-Ogly.
