Yerevan power plant connected to the electric grid ahead of time
One of the largest generating stations in Armenia, the Yerevan power plant, has been reconnected to the grid after suspension for the planned overhaul of June 3. The station was connected to the grid on July 20 instead of the scheduled date of July 29. Planned work included cleaning the rotor, but it turned out that the rotor does not need to be cleaned, so the work was completed before the deadline, said the general director of the plant, Hovakim Hovhannisyan.
The cost of the overhaul was 9.5 billion drams, and 90% of these funds were used to purchase spare parts of the turbine. He noted that during this repair it was possible to increase the efficiency by 1-1.5%, which will reduce fuel consumption for electricity production.
