According to the contract, “Turboatom” upgraded two K-220-44 turbines with a rated capacity of 220 MW each at power unit No. 2 of the nuclear power plant. To do this, the company manufactured and delivered to the nuclear power plant the upgraded cylinders of one turbine (TG-3) in May 2018, which was put into operation in November 2018, and also supplied the cylinders of the second turbine (TG-4) in November 2018.
