CHENNAI: Atomenergomash, a machine-building division of Russia’s Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation, manufactured and shipped out a set of equipment for the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant (KKNPP) in Tamil Nadu, according to Rosatom.

The equipment includes Moisture Separator Reheaters and High-Pressure Heaters for KKNPP Unit 3 as well as spare parts for the scheduled maintenance of Reactor Coolant Pumps at KKNPP Units 1 & 2, a release said.

Moisture Separator Reheaters, manufactured by ZiO-Podolsk, a subsidiary of Atomenergomash, are designed to remove water condensed from the process stream to maximise thermal efficiency and reliability of the low-pressure turbine. The weight of the equipment is 47 tonnes; height is seven metres and diameter is four metres.

High-Pressure Heaters with a length of more than 11 metres, that weigh 120 tonnes, pre-heat feedwater, delivered to a steam generator. The equipment is one of the main elements of the turbine island, where thermal energy is extracted from pressurised steam and converted into electrical energy.

The total weight of the equipment for KKNPP Unit 3 is more than 1,000 tonnes. Totally, there will be eight sets of Moisture Separator Reheaters and High-Pressure Heaters. Spare parts for the Reactor Coolant Pumps, manufactured by CDBMB (also a subsidiary of Atomenergomash) weigh 50 tonnes.
