21 November 2006 -- OJSC Power Machines has successfully carried out steam tests of the 660 MW turbine for the first power unit of Sipat TPP (India) currently under construction.
This is the first turbine of that capacity in the Russian steam turbine manufacturing designed for supercritical parameters. The contract for the turn-key construction of three machinery halls of Sipat TPP with steam-turbine units of 660 MW each was signed between Power Machines and Indian State National Power Corporation in May 2004.
In the terms of the contract Power Machines will carry out design, manufacture, supply, assembling and commissioning of the main equipment of three power units. Each power unit equipment set includes turbine, turbogenerator, turbine drive to the supply pump produced by Kaluga Turbine Works, as well as auxiliary equipment within the scope of machinery hall.
