Russian ZiO-Podolsk ships equipment to Belarusian nuclear power plant

MINSK, 8 June (BelTA) – The Russian mechanical engineering company ZiO-Podolsk (part of Atomenergomash, which is the mechanical engineering division of the Russian state corporation Rosatom) has sent on its way equipment for the first power-generating unit of the Belarusian nuclear power plant, the Atomenergomash press service told BelTA.

The Belarusian customer will get two second-stage condensate drums for a moisture separator-reheater (SPP-1200). The condensate drums are horizontal devices that weigh 15.6 tonnes, are about 5m in length and 1.7m in diameter. The condensate drums are a sophisticated piece of equipment.

Earlier ZiO-Podolsk shipped over 60 pieces of equipment relating to the SPP-1200 system with the total weight of about 900 tonnes to the Belarusian nuclear power plant.

Another set of equipment for an SPP-1200 system is being manufactured for the second power-generating unit of the Belarusian nuclear power plant.

Based in Podolsk, Moscow Oblast, ZiO-Podolsk is a major manufacturer of sophisticated heat exchange equipment for fuel and energy infrastructure installations such as nuclear and heat power plants, oil and gas industry enterprises. As much as 40% of the installed energy installations in Russia, the CIS states, and the Baltic states use equipment made by ZiO-Podolsk.

The Belarusian nuclear power plant is a project to build an AES-2006 type nuclear power plant 18km away from Ostrovets, Grodno Oblast. The BelNPP will have two power-generating units with the total output capacity of up to 2,400MW (2x1,200MW). In line with the general contract for building the nuclear power plant the first power-generating unit is scheduled for commissioning in 2018, with the second one to go online in 2020.
