8 Ulyanovsk TPP From The Inside

Ulyanovsk TPP From The Inside

Posted on March 20, 2011 by team

Ulyanovsk TTP-1 was launched in 1946 and first belonged under the automobile plant evacuated from Gorky, which is now UAZ. In this photo-excursion we’ll try to show the operating principle of a TTP in a few words.

In graduation towers water, involved into the technological cycle, is cooled. A graduation tower is like a big shower without a roof – water is spattered from the top, cooled and poured into the pipe. The electric capacity of the plant is 435 megawatt, but only in winter due to the proper water cooling. In summer the capacity is lower.

And this smoke goes from the parent pipe (its height is about 180 m) because of fuel consumption. Every day about 1000 tons of oil-fuel is combusted here.

The conference room.

The turbine department – a very huge and noisy place.

A crane.

Different aggregates…

A steam converter.
