Within the frames of the XIII Forum of Inter-Regional Cooperation between Kazakhstan and Russia held in Astana,Central-Asian Electric Power Corporation (CAEPCO) and the Ural Turbine Works (UTW) signed Memorandum of Cooperation. It is alreadythe third agreement between the companies aimed at generation equipment modernization.
Under thisagreement,the Ural Turbine Works will take part in modernization of three turbines Т-100 and one turbinePT-135 at the facilities of CAEPCO, JSC.Total modernization cost is estimated at 2.18 billion rubles.The document was signed by Yerkyn Amirkhanov, the President of CAEPOC, JSC, and Mikhail Lifshitz, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Ural Turbine Works, CJSC (ROTEC holding being a part of Renova Group).
As a part of cooperation, the parties will consider the possibility of implementing industrial Internet technologies at the power station of CAEPCO, JSC— PRANA system designed for prognostics of generating equipment condition. The system developed by ROTEC specialists is based on adaptive mathematical models and allows determining operation deviations and localizing equipment defects at early stages —two-three months prior to their detection by the standard power unit control system. PRANA has been alreadysuccessfully used at a number of the Russian power stations for more than a year. Such system will be installed in Kazakhstan for the first time.
The cooperation experience between Russian mechanical engineers and Kazakhstani power engineers shows that costs for modernization of each turbine are approximately two times lower than the costs for a new power unit construction (when calculated for 1 kW generation). Along with that, equipment key characteristics are improved — performance coefficient, capacity, fuel consumption rate.
