Ural Turbine Works upgrades two turbines of Avtovskaya CHP, TGC-1

The Ural Turbine Works (ROTEC Group) has entered into an agreement with TER LLC, the general contractor of the project, for the upgrade of two turbines at Avtovskaya CHP, TGC-1 PJSC. Under the contract, the UTW will manufacture turbine sets (including high- and low-pressure cylinders, heaters) for T-100 and T-95 turbines. The deadline is scheduled for June 2020.


The upgrade will increase the power of each turbine up to 123 MW. The units will feature modern control systems to ensure robustness and high flexibility of the equipment. In general, this will have a positive effect on the electricity and heat supply to industrial enterprises, and residential and public buildings of Admiralteysky, Moskovsky, Kirovsky and Krasnoselsky districts of St. Petersburg. About one million people live in the coverage area of the plant.

TGC-1 PJSC is rolling out a large-scale investment program in the regions of its reach. In 2012, the Ural Turbine Works carried out a partial upgrade of the T-100 steam turbine flow section.

“The upgrade of T-100 turbines is a sequential, well-developed project for us. It will provide customers with efficient and robust equipment at low cost. Per 1 kW of power, the upgrade costs are about half as much as those for new unit construction,” notes Igor Sorochan, CEO of the UTW.


TGC-1 PJSC is a leading producer of electricity and heating in the North-West region of Russia. It operates 53 electric generating stations in four regions of Russia: St. Petersburg, Republic of Karelia, Leningrad Oblast, and Murmansk Oblast. In its investment activity, the company’s primary focus is on projects to protect the environment, and improve the energy efficiency and environmental safety of power facilities. Avtovskaya CHP is the largest energy source in the southwestern area of St. Petersburg.
