GENERAL ELECTRIC generator rotor set to final position in Kazan

In April 2016 our Company continued its participation in modernization works performed at Kazan CHPP-3 (Central Heating and Power Plant-3). Within the framework of this project our Company unloaded a 390-ton GENERAL ELECTRIC gas turbine and a 317.5-ton GENERAL ELECTRIC generator stator from low loaders, installed them at a temporary storage site and then loaded them onto low loaders, unloaded them, performed rigging operations and set them on a foundation.
At this stage of works, we dealt with a complex operation of placing the rotor into the body of the generator. A special Work Method Statement was developed for these works. It took into account all the peculiarities of loads manufactured with application of unique high-precision technology and requiring a respective approach. As a result, the Work Method Statement was approved by the GENERAL ELECTRIC representatives and all the works were accomplished within the time limits prescribed for assembling operations with high quality.
