The Rus­sia’s Power Ma­chines com­pany will carry out a stage-bystage mod­ern­iza­tion in 2018-2020 of the «turn-key» six power units of the Syrdarya Thermal Power Plant.

The Rus­sians will carry out the mod­ern­iza­tion of tur­bine, gen­er­a­tor, boiler and aux­il­iary equip­ment of power units №№ 3-6, 9 and 10. Au­to­matic con­trol sys­tems for tech­no­log­i­cal pro­cesses will also be in­tro­duced, re­con­struc­tion of au­to­matic con­trol sys­tems will be im­ple­mented, con­struc­tion and in­stal­la­tion, su­per­vi­sion, com­mis­sion­ing and war­ranty tests to con­firm the claimed in­crease in ca­pac­ity. Com­ple­tion of the mod­ern­iza­tion is sched­uled for 2020.

«Mod­ern­iza­tion of the largest en­ergy fa­cil­ity in Uzbek­istan will re­duce the elec­tric power deficit in the re­gion and in­crease the re­li­a­bil­ity of the coun­try's power sys­tem,» said Yury Pe­trenya, Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of Power Ma­chines PJSC. “Start­ing from 2018, we are com­mit­ted to mod­ern­iz­ing two power units on a turnkey ba­sis an­nu­ally - this is one of the specifics of this con­tract, be­cause for such a large amount of work in our in­dus­try this is quite a short time.

As a re­sult of mod­ern­iza­tion, the ca­pac­ity of each power unit will in­crease by

25 MW - up to 325 MW, which in to­tal will in­crease the ca­pac­ity of the sta­tion by 150 MW”.

It should be re­minded that ear­lier, in 2013-2015, Power Ma­chines ful­filled the full-scale mod­ern­iza­tion of power units № 1 and № 2 of the Syrdarya TPP with an in­crease in ca­pac­ity by 50 MW to 650 MW. In ad­di­tion, the com­pany com­pleted mod­ern­iza­tion of the Char­vak Hy­dro Power Plant in the Tashkent re­gion in 2016 with a to­tal fi­nanc­ing of $ 56.5 mil­lion. Re­place­ment of the hy­dro­elec­tric plant equip­ment al­lowed in­creas­ing its ca­pac­ity by 45.5 MW, which made it pos­si­ble to pro­duce 120 mil­lion kW/h a year.
