Ural Turbine Works will supply a 60 MW turbine for the Arkhangelsk Pulp and Paper Mill

Ural Turbine Works (ROTEC holding) will supply a steam turbine PT-60-8,9/1,9 for the Arkhangelsk Pulp and Paper Mill JSC. The contract for a new turbine-type generator supply was signed between APPM and JSC ROTEC. The project implementation period is 2020. The new equipment cost more than 1 billion rubles.

The steam turbine PT-60-8.9/1.,9 for APPM is developed on the basis of a turbine manufactured for the Novolipetsk Steel Plant, where it has been successfully operated since the beginning of 2018. A new turbine will be installed on the existing foundation, which will reduce capital costs. 

The turbine PT-60-8.9/1.,9 "ex-works" will be connected to the predictive system PRANA. The system created in ROTEC JSC defines defects 2-3 months before they can lead to an emergency. RANA increases the transparency of the equipment technical condition — it reduces its repair cost, makes it possible to control the actions of operating personnel and contractors. That is, itincreases the power plant efficiency and reliability.

Dmitry Zylyov, the APPM General Director, told reporters at a post-briefing that the plant is implementing a retrofit program of the company’s energy system. The ultimate goal of the program is  APPM full gasification by 2025. The replacement of the 60 MW turbine unit at TPP-1, which has exhausted its economic life, will become the first step. "We chose the company ROTEC based on the results of a long and quite serious tender,” said Dmitry Zylyov. “The high level of the holding competence in the field of power equipment and its compliance with the best world standards was the key point for us."

Ivan Panasyuk, the Executive Director of JSC ROTEC, emphasized that the holding has a unique experience in the production of complex energy equipment and design work not only on the Russian market. “We are pleased to cooperate with the Arkhangelsk PPM and highly appreciate the trust placed in us,”  said Ivan Panasyuk,“Signing of this contract opens up serious prospects for us.” Ivan Panasyuk also noted that Ural Turbine Works has been operating for 80 years and has produced more than 900 steam turbines of various capacities.


The Arkhangelsk PPM was founded in 1940 and it is one of the leading wood chemical enterprises in the RF and Europe. It specializes in the production of cardboard and market pulp, paper and paper-and-stationery products. The APPM sole shareholder is the Austrian company Pulp Mill Holding GmbH.
