It was to be a regular report about Kolomenskoye Gas-Turbine Power Plant. Check out what came out of it.
There are two power plants in Kotlyakovsky Lane in Moscow – an old district fuel-burning power plant and a new gas-turbine power plant. They closed the old noisy fuel-burning power plant in 2009 after they put the new gas-turbine power plant into operation.
They spent over 260 million dollars to build the gas-turbine power plant and sent its workers to Germany to study because they needed special skills to work with equipment like that.
The main advantage of the gas-turbine power plant over the regular district fuel-burning power plant is the fact that the first one produces both heat and electricity which allows saving fuel by 30%. Gas-turbine power plants are environmentally safe because they produce very little smoke.
Besides, Komonenskaya Gas-Turbine Power Plant was also pronounced the most low noise gas-turbine power plant in Europe!
Its principle of operation is simple. Air goes into gas-turbine installations through complex air-cleaning installations situated on the roof of the power plant.
The power plant is equipped with three 45.3-megawatt SGT-800 gas-turbine installations by Siemens IT. Each turbine has a separate a sound and heat insulating casing.
