Ural Turbine Works has put into operation a new turbine generator (120 MW) at the largest in Mongolia Ulaanbaatar CHPP-4.
The official start-up ceremony of the turbine unit was held today in Ulaanbaatar in the presence of D. Zorigt, Minister of Energy of Mongolia, I. Azizov, Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of the Russian Federation in Mongolia, and the representatives of parliament — State Great Khural. The event has also been participated by heads of Russian companies involved into the project implementation: M. Lifshitz, Director General of ROTEC CJSC and Chairman of the Board of Directors of UTW CJSC, and S. Chaplik, Director of SOYUZ Holding Company. The telegram of greetings addressed to the participants of the ceremony was sent by Russian Prime Minister, D.A. Medvedev.
Commissioning of the power facility of such capacity is a significant event for Mongolia. All CHPPs operating in the country were built in the 50's - 80's of the last century with the support of the USSR and require reconstruction or modernization including increasing of capacity.
To carry out modernization of Ulaanbaatar CHPP-4 which currently operates six Soviet-made turbines, Mongolia chose Ural Turbine Works CJSC (UTW), part of ROTEC Holding Company, as a general contractor. Along with manufacturing and supply of the main equipment, UTW was the only company who implemented the contract on turnkey basis. Design, construction and installation works as well as commissioning were performed by ECC SOYUZ JSC. The project was implemented in close cooperation with engineers and workers of Ulaanbaatar CHPP-4 and other Mongolian companies participated in the construction of the power-generating unit.
"Relations between Russia and Mongolia, as a tradition, have the nature of neighborliness, diversified character and are based on a long history of bilateral cooperation. After a break in the 1990's these relations have been recommenced in the spirit of strategic partnership. Involvement of the Ural Turbine Works, being a part of Renova group, along with other Russian engineers into the expansion project of Ulaanbaatar CHPP-4 has become a good example in terms of renewal of technological cooperation between the two countries," — said at the ceremony Iskander Azizov, Ambassador of the Russian Federation to Mongolia.
Mikhail Lifshitz Chairman of the Board of Directors of Ural Turbine Works CJSC, in his turn emphasized: "The turbine Т-120/130-130-8МО installed at the power plant is the latest turbine manufactured on the platform of model T-100, which is familiar to Mongolian power engineers, but the new one has increased power capacity: more than 120 MW. The project has been implemented by us on turnkey basis in the shortest time. I would like to express our gratitude to the customer — Ulaanbaatar CHPP-4 and Mongolian companies who showed high professionalism: Hos Bar, CHANSAA HOLDING, SUUR, MEEZ, as well as our Russian partners from ECC SOYUZ and other companies. We hope that our cooperation will turn to a long-term partnership, and we will participate in other projects focused on the development of the Mongolian energy system."
