In June 2019, procedure of coupling of shaft and runner bushing of the first hydraulic turbine of two planned was completed.

Specialists of the enterprise performed control assembly of equipment, in process of which in runner bushing and shaft there was joint boring of holes for subsequent installation of bushings and bolts in it.

This procedure is necessary to control coincidence of mounting holes and to exclude displacement of axes of hydraulic turbine units. Performing control assembly in factory conditions allows ensuring accuracy of centering of unit and significantly reducing cycle of installation work at power plant.

Next, shaft will be sent to the SE "Plant "Elektrovazhmash", where coupling of shaft with the bush of generator will take place, after this equipment will be finally delivered to power plant. Now enterprise is in process of runner manufacturing, completion of which is scheduled on August of this year - after functional tests in presence of customer.

Previously, to power plant embedded parts already had been sent, and devices for installation are scheduled to be shipped no later than next month.

Recall that on 22 November 2017, "Turboatom" and PJSC "Ukrhydroenergo" signed contract for rehabilitation of two hydraulic units (adjustable blades turbines and generators) for Seredniodniprovska HPP. Completion of the contract is scheduled for September 2021. This will increase capacity of "Ukrhydroenergo" hydroelectric power plants, increase amount of electric energy production, extend life of equipment of company's HPPs, and strengthen reliability of power grid of the country as a whole.
