At the Grozny TPP there is nearing completion of the first power unit construction

20 November 2018

The construction of a new thermal power plant is carried out on an area of over 20 hectares at the territory of the former CHPP-3. The basis of the Grozny TPP is two Siemens gas turbine units of type SGT5-2000E with capacity of 180 MW each. The planned electric capacity of the power plant is 360 MW. The main and reserve fuel for turbines is natural gas.

The construction of the first power unit is being completed at the facility. There is mounted booster compressor station consisting of three Enerproject modular units. BCS is designed to treat and compress fuel gas according to the technical requirements of the turbine manufacturer.

During the erection, a large-block assembly of the BCS was carried out; there were installed local automated control systems (in separate enclosures) and air-cooling units; the piping arrangement and electrical power connection were completed. Gas is fed to the compressor units; the BCS is being prepared for start-up and adjustment works. This is an important stage of the pre-start activities at the power plant.

In mid-November, the Head of the Chechen Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov, visited the construction site of the Grozny TPP. After inspecting the machine room and the gas turbine unit No. 1, he noted that the commissioning of the complex would be a big step in the development of the republic’s energy complex. Almost all of the republic will be provided with high-quality electricity. The launch of the thermal power plant will also provide new jobs, additional tax deductions to the budget; it will allow avoiding losses during transportation and curbing the growth of tariffs.

REFERENCE. The operating company of the Grozny TPP is OGK-2 PJSC. The project is being implemented by the Gazprom Energoholding Group within the framework of the system of capacity supply agreements (CSA). The Grozny TPP is the final CSA project in the Gazprom Energoholding Group. OGK-2 intends to introduce the first power unit by February 1, the second – by August 1, 2019.
