On April 5, installation of the generator stator in its design position has been completed successfully in the turbine hall of Rooppur NPP Unit 1 (Rosatom State Corporation Engineering Division being the general designer and general contractor). The works were performed by specialists of VdMU LLC branch office in the People’s Republic of Bangladesh.

The generator stator is the main element of turbine unit electrical equipment, which is designed for conversion of mechanical power received from the turbine to the electric power.

“The generator stator is the heaviest element of the power unit equipment with the total weight exceeding 440 tons. Completion of its installation in the design position allows us to proceed with full-scale works on installation of the turbine hall main equipment”, noted Alexey Deriy, Vice President of ASE JSC - Project Director for Rooppur NPP Construction, speaking of importance of the event.

The turbine generator TZV-1200-2 was developed and manufactured by Power Machines JSC. The advantages of this type of turbine generators are fire safety, enhanced reliability, high overload capacity due to low heating and vibration levels, lack of shaft oil seals, fans and gas coolers built in the stator.

Rooppur NPP equipped with two VVER-1200 reactors of the total 2,400 MW capacity is being constructed under the Russian design160 km from Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, in accordance with General Contract dated December 25, 2015. The Russian design with VVER-1200 reactors was selected for the first NPP in Bangladesh, which was successfully implemented at two units of Novovoronezh NPP. This is an evolutionary Generation III+ design which fully complies with all the international safety requirements.

For reference:

Rosatom State Corporation Engineering Division unites the leading companies of the nuclear industry, namely: Atomstroyexport JSC (Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod, branches in Russia and abroad), Joint Design Institute - Atomenergoproekt JSC (Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod, St-Petersburg branches - design institutes, branches in Russia and abroad, R&D branches) and subsidiary construction organizations.

The Engineering Division ranks first in the world by the order portfolio and the number of NPPs constructed simultaneously across the world.

About 80% of the Division’s revenues originate from foreign projects.

The Engineering Division implements construction projects for high-power NPPs in Russia and across the world, renders a full range of EPC, EP, and EPC(M) services including project management and design activities, and develops Multi-D technologies for the management of complex engineering facilities. The Division relies on the achievements of the Russian nuclear industry and innovative state-of-the-art technologies.

We construct reliable and safe NPPs equipped with III+ generation VVER reactors that are in line with all international requirements and recommendations.
