Russia ships out equipment for KNPP 4th unit

Chennai, Oct 19 (UNI) Atomenergomash, a machine-building division of
Russia’s Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation, manufactured and
shipped out a set of equipment for Unit-4 of the Kudankulam Nuclear
Power Plant (KNPP) being set up in Tuticorin district of Tamil Nadu.
The equipment included Moisture Separator Reheaters (MSR-1000-1),
a Rosatom release said here on Friday.
''Totally, there will be four sets of Moisture Separator Reheaters, two
sets have already been shipped'', it said.
Having a life span of 30 years, the Moisture Separator Reheaters,
manufactured by ZiO-Podolsk, a subsidiary of Atomenergomash,
were designed to remove water condensed from the process stream
to maximize thermal efficiency and reliability of the low
pressure turbine.
The weight of the separators was 47 tonnes. The height was around
six metres and diameter was four metres.
The Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant was jointly constructed by
Rosatom and Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL).
Atomenergomash was the supplier of the main equipment for the reactor
and turbine islands. The design and construction work on the site were
being performed by ASE Group of Companies, an engineering division of
Rosatom.
The KNPP Unit-1 was synchronized with the southern power grid in
October 2013 and the Unit 2 was grid-connected in August 2016.
Rosatom brings together over 300 enterprises and organizations,
including the world's only nuclear icebreaker fleet, and has the
world’s largest portfolio of nuclear power plant construction
projects abroad (36 nuclear power plants units in 12 countries),
the second largest uranium reserves globally.
It ranks fourth in uranium production and covers 17 per cent of the
global nuclear fuel market.
