KTW met the beginning of the year with the successful completion of an international project. Cogeneration turbine with back pressure Р-18/24-2,1/0,25 was shipped from Kaluga to Belarus. The turbine is designed to drive a turbogenerator with a nominal electric capacity of 24 MW at the Mogilev city combined heat power plant.
"In 2019, Mogilev CHPP-2 celebrated the 50th anniversary since its commissioning. The management of the plant decided to reconstruct the turbine fleet. Turbine Р-18/24-2,1/0,25 from Kaluga was designed to replace the existing Т-50/60-130 turbine, which has reached the end of its service life and is being dismantled as part of the reconstruction project" - commercial Director of KTW Ivan Romanov.
In addition to generating electricity, the cogeneration turbine Р-18/24-2,1/0,25 from Kaluga is designed to supply steam to a line heater which, in turn, provides heating through delivery water for municipal utilities, as well as the largest industrial enterprises of the Mogilev city.
The history of KTW's cooperation with its Belarusian partners goes back more than half a century.
The first turbine with a capacity of 6 MW was delivered to Mogilev CHPP-1 by the Kaluga turbine works in 1958. Having properly worked through its service life, in 2004 the turbine was replaced by an analog, also produced at KTW.
In December 2018 Kaluga turbine works has signed a contract with RUE "Moglevenergo" for the supply of a higher-capacity turbine, which will be installed in 2020.
