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.
Some shafts are up to 3 meters or 10 feet in diameter.
Some floors are made of wooden blocks installed vertically. They are probably made this way to protect parts from damage if they land on the floor.
Working on the inside of the parts.
Every inch is meticiously inspected.
And those are huge bolts used to put this stuff all together.
Hope you liked the photos taken by Dmitri! His site is below:
