May 18, the first power unit of Primorskaya TPP, in which the turbogenerator ТФ-65-2У3 is iincluded, was synchronized with power system of the region.
Within the tests, on station it was done a start of turbogenerator and steam turbine. The specialists have checked a working ability of turbine unit at idle and achieved the rotor speed as 3000 rpm.
Also, it was done a checking of proper operation of all elements of turbogenerator, turbine and functioning of electric and hydraulic alignment system.
The power unit has worked its first 5 MWs, therefore, a readiness of equipment to synchronous operation with the power system of Kaliningrad region was proved.
The next step will be an alignment of equipment under a load and complex trial after which the power unit will be commissioned.
A completion of building of this station is scheduled at the fourth quarter of 2020.
The Primorskaya TPP of capacity 195 MW consists of three steam-powered plants. In a content of each power unit – a turbogenerator (NPO “ELSIB” PAO, Novosibirsk), a steam turbine of JSC “Ural turbine plant” (Yekaterinburg) production and a steam boiler (JSC ZIO “Podolsk machine building plant”, Moscow region).
As a main fuel for Primorskaya TPP it will be coal. A building of the station will allow to diversify a fuel balance of Kaliningrad power system to reduce a power and technological dependence from the supplies of natural gas.
