Surgut SDPP-2 received generators and gas turbines for the two units of the 800 MW total capacity being constructed. For the first time the oversized cargo has been delivered to the West Siberia from abroad via the Northern Sea Route.
The German Chandler Logistics chose the Beluga Shipping company for the sea shipping of the general Electric machines. The powerplants weighing 7,000 tons were shipper from USA to Antwerp, then to Murmansk. This is the larges ever cargo delivered to Russia via the Northern Sea Route. It may happen that this achievement will find its place in the Guinness Book of Records.
The gas turbines and generators were delivered to the Surgut SDPP-2 construction site by multi axle trailers. The Chandler Logistics representative told RusBusinessNews that moving cargo for the SDPP is not over yet. Construction materials from Thailand and Korea, pipes from Belgium will still be arriving at Surgut until the middle of October.
The construction of two units is carried out within the framework of the implementation of the large scale investment programme of the WGC-4 (Wholesale Generating Company No.4) and the multinational E.On, the major shareholder of the company. The total investment into the establishment of the additional 2,400 MW capacities at the four Russian power stations of WGC-4 (Berezovsk, Yayva, Surgut, and Shatura) amounts to about 2.3 billion Euro.
The commissioning of the units in the late 2010 - early 2011 will increase the capacity of the Surgut SDPP to 5,600 MW.
