Blogger wizarden has visited “ELSIB”, the big scientific and production association in Novosibirsk that designs and makes electric machines, turbo- and hydraulic turbine generators and provides contract supervision at various objects. Its products are used for oil and gas, coal, chemical and other industries both in Russia and abroad. Today about 30% of Russian power plants have their energy provided by ELSIB generators.

Impregnation chambers for stators of electric machines and turbogenerator rods.
Some Soviet posters are still hanging on these walls.
In the insulation shop most of workers are women. According to the statistics they do the job more accurately and attentively.
And here is what they get – the coil winding, the “heart” of a future electrical machine.
To provide insulation for turbogenerator rods they use this insulating machine SDB-9000.

No matter where women work, they bring flowers there…
Bar and coil winding shop.
This mould is used for heating and shaping turbo generator rods.
Checking the rod for absence of inter-winding faults.
Stretching machine used for coil shaping.
Conductor workpieces will be used for making turbogenerator rods.
It’s here for repair.
Turbogenerator rotor coils.
Turbogenerator testing area.
Turbogenerator stators in storage. Such stators are used for generating power at thermal power plants.
This huge lathe is used for machining a turbogenerator rotor after assembly.
Rotor shaft has just passed a flaw inspection.
This one will be transported to Sovetskaya Gavan, Khabarovsk region.
