At the GT CHPP Luch in Belgorod, a gas turbine unit No. 2 is being upgraded

21 April 2019

At the GT CHPP Luch of Belgorod branch of PJSC Quadra there is begun scheduled repair of a gas turbine unit No. 2 (GTU-2). Restoration works are conducted in accordance with technical regulations – after 25,000 hours of operating time.

First, the gas generator was put into repair. In a specialized service center there will be performed a modular replacement of the "hot part", consisting of a combustion chamber and a two-stage high-pressure turbine. Then the power engineers will repair the GTU generator.

Gas turbine power plant Luch consisting of two power generating unit has been operating since December 2005 in cogeneration cycle which provides combined energy generating. The electric capacity is 60 MW, thermal – 60 Gcal / h.

Each power unit includes a General Electric GTU of type LM2500 + DLE HSPT (rated capacity 34.5 MW) in a container version with an emission reduction system, a water-heating waste-heat boiler with a closed and external circuit, auxiliary equipment.

In order to uninterrupted ensure generating capacities with high-quality fuel, equipment of the Swiss company Enerproject SA was used here for the first time in Russia - the gas-compressor station was installed at the GT CHPP. Two booster units based on screw oil-filled compressors compress natural gas to a design pressure of 3.6 MPa and feed it into turbines.

The official partner of the Enerproject SA in Russia – is ENERGAS Group. The companies of Group implement engineering, manufacture, delivery, commissioning, maintenance, repair, and upgrade of gas compressor and gas treatment equipment.

REFERENCE. The need to build a new power plant in Belgorod in 2005 was due to an increase in the growth rate of housing construction. When implementing the project, the most advanced equipment was used. The construction of the GT CHPP Luch in less than 11 months is the first experience of introducing gas turbine technologies for Belgorod power engineers. Today, together with the Yuzhnaya boiler house, this plant provides 50% of the heat and hot water needs of the largest urban area Kharkovskaya Gora.
