First turbine of Adler TPP delivered to construction site
The first gas turbine of the Adler TPP has been delivered to the construction site today.
The heavy-weight cargo arrived at the Imeretinsky Port on August 19, 2010. Having departed from Genoa, a vessel carried the V 64.3A gas turbine (56 tons) and its generator (130 tons) manufactured by Italian Ansaldo Energia. Many items of auxiliary equipment were supplied as well.
It only took a few days to transfer the cargo from the vessel to the port warehouse, to complete the customs procedures and to carry it to the TPP construction site.
Equipment installation will start any day now.
An efficient logistics system and a rapid work pace confirm that the Adler TPP construction will be finalized on schedule.
The Adler TPP has been included in the Program for the Olympic facilities construction and development of Sochi as a mountain-climatic resort. The Adler TPP is to be commissioned in 2012 according to the Olympic facilities construction schedule.
The Adler TPP will be based on the 360 MW combined-cycle gas turbine plant (heating capacity – 227 Gcal/hr) comprising two power units with the overall efficiency of 52 per cent.
Each of the power units will consist of two 65.8 MW gas turbines manufactured by Italian Ansaldo Energia and one 62.8 MW steam turbine manufactured by Kaluga Turbine Plant.
The Adler TPP will primarily run on natural gas as it is the most eco-friendly energy resource, which enables to preserve a favorable environment. The modern combined-cycle technology provides high efficiency, low fuel consumption and a reduction in airborne pollutant emissions by 30 per cent on average versus conventional steam power plants. The engineering solutions and materials used during the project execution comply with the highest Russian and international environmental standards.
The Adler TPP became one of the first Olympic energy facilities that passed the public hearings and obtained state and environmental approvals.
Mosenergo Fuel and Energy Company is the general contractor for the Adler TPP construction. It is a design, construction and engineering complex that has a long-standing track record in delivering large power generation projects, practical skills in customizing foreign and domestic generating equipment, as well as expertise in the national and international rules and standards for construction and operation.
