A new steam-gas unit is put into operation at Tashkent Thermal Power Plant
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) --
President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev launched a new steam-gas unit at Tashkent Thermal Power Plant on 2 December 2017.
Uzbek leader pressed the symbolic start button of the new steam-gas unit with a capacity of 370 megawatts.
After commissioning of a new steam-gas unit, the station will generate an additional 2,6 billion kilowatt/hour of electricity and 110 thousand gigacalories of heat per year.
At a modern installation, the specific gas consumption for the generated electricity will be 223 g/kW/h, while at the operating power units this figure is almost twice as high. As a result, 350,9 million cubic meters of natural gas are saved every year.
A steam-gas turbine and generators of the American company “General Electric” were installed in the plant. Modern equipment is also brought from Belgium, Italy, Russia and other countries.
Products of domestic enterprises, including JSC “Uzkabel”, “Uzelektroapparat”, Chirchik Transformer Plant and others were widely used when implementing the project. This made it possible to significantly save currency and effectively use the attracted investments.
The operation of the steam-gas unit is fully automated.
