Power units No. 5 and No. 6 of the Syrdarya TPP, modernized by Power Machines, starts to produce the first kilowatts
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- After the modernization carried out by Power Machines, the fifth and sixth power units of the Syrdarya TPP, the largest power plant in Central Asia, have been successfully connected to the country’s energy system and put into operation.
According to the EPC contract signed by Power Machines and Syrdarya TPP, in accordance with the Order of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan “On measures for the phased modernization of the power units of the Syrdarya TPP”, the Russian power engineering company is carrying out a full-scale modernization of six station power units.
Modernization with an increase in the total capacity of six power units of the station from 1800 to 1950 MW is organized in three stages.
The first stage was implemented in 2019, when power units No. 3 and No. 4 were put into operation, both equipped with Power Machines equipment.
At the second stage, power units No. 5 and No. 6 were launched. The scope of work completed by Power Machines includes a comprehensive modernization of turbine, generator, boiler and auxiliary equipment, the introduction of automatic control systems for technological processes, the reconstruction of an automatic control system, as well as a full range of construction -installation, commissioning and installation supervision.
Produced by the Russian enterprises Leningrad Metal Plant, Electrosila Plant, Krasny Kotelshchik TKZ, Kaluga Turbine Plant, the equipment has improved performance characteristics that meet the requirements of reliability and safety. The service life of the supplied turbine units is 40 years, while the capacity of each power unit, following the results of modernization, has been increased by 25 MW - up to 325 MW.
The completion of the modernization of the largest thermal power plant in Central Asia is scheduled for the current year, after the end of the third stage, when power units No. 9 and No. 10 will be put into operation.
The implementation of the project will reduce the electricity shortage in the country, ensure the stable operation of the energy system of Uzbekistan, and have a positive effect on the economic indicators of the region.
