    RusHydro: A new building of a hydroelectric power plant will be built at the Sengileevskaya HPP


    October 3, 2022 - Contify Energy News

     

      A new hydroelectric power plant building will be built at the Sengileevskaya HPP of the Kuban HPP Cascade. The work is carried out within the framework of the RusHydro HPP Comprehensive Modernization Program. The Sengileevskaya HPP is located on the territory of the Shpakovsky District of the Stavropol Territory, on the 55th kilometer of the Nevinnomyssky Canal. The plant's capacity is 15 MW, the average annual electricity generation is 72.6 million kWh.

      Key Highlights:

      * The station's capacity will increase to 17.85 MW, which is 19% more than the current value.

      * Over the 10 years of the PKM's operation, the increase in the installed capacity of RusHydro's hydroelectric power plants amounted to 553 MW, which can be compared with the appearance of another large hydroelectric power plant as part of the energy holding.

      * During this time, 130 hydraulic turbines, 115 generators, 86 power transformers, as well as more than 10 thousand units of auxiliary equipment were replaced or modernized.

      Original Press Release:

      Sept. 29 -- RusHydro issued the following news release:

      A new hydroelectric power plant building will be built at the Sengileevskaya HPP of the Kuban HPP Cascade. The work is carried out within the framework of the RusHydro HPP Comprehensive Modernization Program.

      The Sengileevskaya HPP is located on the territory of the Shpakovsky District of the Stavropol Territory, on the 55th kilometer of the Nevinnomyssky Canal. The plant's capacity is 15 MW, the average annual electricity generation is 72.6 million kWh. A feature of the Sengileevskaya HPP is the absence of a dam, the pressure on the turbines is created using a diversion channel and a pipeline.

      The station was put into operation almost 70 years ago, in 1953. The results of the surveys showed that the reinforced concrete structures of the HPP building are in poor condition, and the hydropower equipment of the station does not meet modern requirements, in connection with which it was decided to dismantle the existing building and build a new one. The work will go in several stages, the dismantling of equipment has already begun, after which building structures will be dismantled, and then a new building will be erected and modern equipment will be installed.

      A feature of the Sengileevskaya HPP is the use of hydroelectric units of different capacities with two types of turbines - propeller and radial-axial. To date, the station equipment is outdated and has reached a high degree of wear and tear. The hydraulic power equipment in the new building will be unified, it will include three identical hydraulic units with radial-axial hydraulic turbines. The station's capacity will increase to 17.85 MW, which is 19% more than the current value.

      The comprehensive modernization program provides for the complete renovation of the Sengileevskaya HPP. Within its framework, a modern complete switchgear with SF6 circuit breakers (GIS) has already been built and put into operation, which replaced the outdated and worn-out open-type switchgear. The leveling tower and pressure pipelines are being reconstructed, worn-out structures have been dismantled, and a new tower is being built. It is also planned to modernize the water intake, diversion pipeline and other plant facilities.

      RusHydro is implementing the Program for the Comprehensive Modernization of Hydro-Generating Facilities, under which it is planned to replace half of the fleet of turbines, generators and transformers at RusHydro's HPPs and PSPPs. Such a large-scale program for updating obsolete and worn-out equipment for the domestic energy industry is unique and unprecedented. Its peculiarity is the focus not on the spot replacement of individual components and assemblies, but on the comprehensive modernization of generating facilities as single technological complexes, with the replacement or reconstruction of the main and auxiliary equipment, plant-wide systems, hydraulic structures.

      Over the 10 years of the PKM's operation, the increase in the installed capacity of RusHydro's hydroelectric power plants amounted to 553 MW, which can be compared with the appearance of another large hydroelectric power plant as part of the energy holding. During this time, 130 hydraulic turbines, 115 generators, 86 power transformers, as well as more than 10 thousand units of auxiliary equipment were replaced or modernized.
