19 December 2018

In the Grozny, the power generating unit No. 1 of Grozny thermal power plant is put into operation after comprehensive tests.

Thus, the first of two stages of the project to build a new TPP has been completed. The power generating unit with capacity of about 180 MW consists of SGT5-2000E gas turbine unit (GTU) created on a basis of gas turbine and generator manufactured by Siemens.

In the course of the second stage, power unit No. 2, similar in characteristics and equipment, will be built and commissioned. The total installed electric capacity of TPP will reach the design value – about 360 MW. The main fuel is natural gas.

At the same time, the compressor unit No. 1 is also underwent the 72-hours integrated tests. During the testing, CU-1 provided uninterrupted fuel supply to the GTU under required operating pressure of 2.4 ... 2.5 MPa.

This unit is part of a booster compressor station (supplied by Sfera LLC). The BCS is intended for gas treatment in accordance with the design parameters on purity, temperature, pressure and flow rate set by the manufacturer of turbines.

BCS of fuel gas comprises three Enerproject modular units of EGSI-S-610/2850WA type. The step-by-step commissioning of the compressor equipment (erection supervision, start-up and adjustment works, own testing, comprehensive operability check as a part of the TPP, training of operating personnel) is being conducted by the leading engineers of ENERGAS Group, of the official representative of the Swiss company Enerproject SA in Russia.

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.
