3 Leningrad – Large Turbine Plant

Leningrad – Large Turbine Plant

Posted on September 16, 2015 by tim


Another blogger, Dmitri, has gone to a famous Leningrad factory – a place where the huge turbines and other parts for the nuclear power plants and other large components of Russian and foreign electro power plants are manufactured. If you want to see in detail how they are made, have a look inside!

This corporation is one of the largest Russian companies and it ships huge machines for most Russian power plants.

To enter the factory, you need to pass multi level security checks. Including tests for alcohol!

Some say that this factory is a perfect example of how a modern Russian factory should look.

The best employees are rewarded with their photos on the local leaderboard.

Inside, the shops are huge.

Here you can see parts of huge turbines.

Here is Dmitri standing next to one.

And this is a huge welding robot.

And in the background there is a gas heater that heats parts to 300+ degrees C and higher.

And these are shafts used in power plants.

And an Italian lathe that machines them.

    Compared to the UK large electrical machine factory that I worked in during the 1970’s it is a lot cleaner but so are all modern European factories. Cleanliness motivates people, even those who abuse it.

    IT is part owned by Siemens.
