“Krasny Kotelshchik” Participated in Repair of Equipment of Surgutskaya GRES-2
High-pressure heater ПВ-1600 was commissioned after repair at Surgutskaya GRES-2 (branch of PJSC “Unipro”) located in Khanty-Mansiisk autonomous district. A new body for this heater was supplied by the Taganrog Boiler-Making Works “Krasny Kotelshchik” (TKZ).
Surgutskaya GRES-2 is considered to be the largest power producer in Russia and the highest-capacity thermal power plant in the world using natural and associated petroleum gas as the main fuel. Supplying the electrical power to different districts of the Western Siberia and the Urals, this power plant significantly influences the welfare of the Ural Federal District.
Uninterrupted operation of Surgutskaya GRES-2 is provided with the key equipment including high-pressure heaters ПВ-1600 which pre-heat the feed water before it is supplied to the boiler. In terms of design, the heaters consist of the tube system and the body inside which the heating steam is condensed.
Exactly such body was designed, manufactured and supplied by “Krasny Kotelshchik” specialists within the framework of the replacement upon expiry of service life for one of ПВ-1600 heaters of Surgutskaya GRES-2. The new component will allow not only significantly extending the service life of the heater but also meeting the requirements set for its reliability and safety.
Prior to start of the erection works the body was subjected to the incoming inspection at the plant and proved its high workmanship. Heater ПВ-1600 with the new body manufactured by TKZ has been currently installed in its design position and is already being used in operation of the plant.
