GC «Titan» increases generation of power at the thermal power plant
A set of measures aimed at increasing energy efficiency and energy security was implemented at the thermal power plant (TPP) of «Omsky kauchuk» PJSC.
Works on modernization of one of three turbine generators have been successfully completed. The turbine generator was transferred to electro-hydraulic control system. Measures on the modernization of the turbine started in the autumn of 2017: installation and commissioning works were carried out, the control unit was completely updated, a new software for the control system was installed. Turbine generators were successfully tested in the spring, after the end of the heating season.
The transfer of turbine generator to electro-hydraulic control system will significantly increase power generation (by almost 10%), and will also allow to keep the required parameters when the turbine of TPP operates in the event of heat load changes or changes of voltage in the electric network.
In 2018, it is planned to continue the implementation of a number of measures aimed at improving the reliability of the plant in the conditions of maximum steam loads in autumn and winter. The measures include: full repair of the first and second boilers with the replacement of internal casing, replacement of evaporating tubes of the fourth boiler, full repair of charging-turbine unit that will be carried out by staff of mechanical repair workshop, and full repair of another turbine generator.
The plant fully provides the petrochemical sites of GC "Titan" and «Poliom» Ltd. (joint venture of GC "Titan", SIBUR and "Gazprom Neft") with energy and steam. Generated power is also supplied to other enterprises of GC «Titan» through the grid of the plant «Omsky kauchuk».
To date, heat rate of TPP is 415.5 Gcal / h. This amount of heat per hour allows to heat a small town - about a hundred five-story houses with six entranceways. The electric power of the TPP is 36 MW / h.
The increase of energy efficiency and energy security of the thermal power plant, as well as modernization of TPP equipment, are aimed, among other things, at creating conditions for the implementation of promising projects of GC «Titan» within the framework of the Agro-biotechnological and Petrochemical Clusters of the Omsk region.
