The new thermal power station consisting of three PGU-325 units is intended for covering the existing power shortage of Nizhni Novgorod intensively developing infrastructure.
The planned power-generating units in-service dates are as follows:
- PGU-325 unit 1 – in 2011;
- PGU-325 unit 2 – in 2013;
- PGU-325 unit 3 – in 2015.
Additional agreements are planned to be concluded for each of the PGU-325 units.
The GTD-110 of NPO Saturn manufacture is the first Russian gas-turbine engine of high capacity. The GTD-110 is integrated into the GTE-110 gas-turbine power plant rated at 110MW, as well as into combined-cycle plants rated at 170 and 325 MW. Within the scope of cooperative project between RAO EES Rossii and NPO Saturn, complex work on conducting of the interdepartmental tests and launching the GTE-110 into mass production have been performed. The partnership agreement between NPO Saturn and RAO EES Rossii has been concluded to support the extensive application of the GTE-110 up-to-date gas-turbine plants in the Russian power industry and to master their mass production. Signed in June 2007, the Agreement stipulates application of twelve GTE-110 plants produced by NPO Saturn while upgrading and constructing of new power-generating units.
As of today, considering the agreements signed with Ivanovskie PGU (units No. 1 and No.2), OGK-6 JSC (Novoryazanskaya State District Power Plant-24), TGK-6 JSC (units No.1, No.2, and No.3 of Nizhegorodskaya Thermal Power Plant), the parties have practically completed all mutual commitments and have signed agreements for eleven high-power GTD-110 gas turbines manufactured by NPO Saturn.
