Installation of the Generator Stator in its design position has successfully been completed in the turbine hall of Unit 1 at Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant. The installation works were performed by specialists of VdMU LLC branch office in Bangladesh. It was completed on Tuesday (April 5.)
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.
Alexei Dairy, vice-president of Atmostrexport, the general contractor for the project, and director of the Rooppur NPP construction project, said in a press release on Wednesday,“The generator stator is the heaviest element of the power unit equipment with a 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.”
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.
Rooppur NPP will be equipped with two Russian VVER-1200 reactors with a total capacity of 2,400 MWe. This is an evolutionary Generation III+ design which fully complies with all the international safety requirements. Engineering Division of Rosatom State Corporation, Russia is the General Designer and General Contractor of the project.
