The installation of generator stator in the design position in the turbine hall of Unit 2 has been completed at Rooppur NPP construction site in the People’s Republic of Bangladesh (general designer and general contractor – ROSATOM’s Engineering Division). The works have been performed by specialists of VdMU LLC Branch (part of ROSATOM’s Engineering Division).
”The stator converts mechanic energy of the turbine rotation into electric energy. Besides, it is the heaviest element of the power unit equipment; its weight is over 440 tons. That is why the installation of the generator into design position is an extremely important stage, its successful completion makes it possible to install the main equipment of the turbine hall” said Alexey Deriy, Vice President of ASE JSC – Director of Rooppur NPP construction project.
Two power units of Rooppur NPP will use TZV-1200-2 turbine generators developed and manufactures by Power Machines PJSC. Their advantages include fire safety, enhanced reliability and high stability against overloads.
Rooppur NPP with two VVER-1200 reactors with the total capacity of 2400 MW is being constructed under the Russian design, 160 km from Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, in accordance with the general contract dated December 25, 2015. The Russian design with VVER-1200 reactors has been selected for the first NPP in Bangladesh. The design has been successfully implemented in two power units of Novovoronezh NPP. This is an evolutionary design of III+ generation, which is fully compliant with the international safety requirements.
