Energy Industry to Boost Its Capacities
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.
