Blade runner of turbine
In 2010 the contract on delivery of hydraulic power and hydromechanical equipment on turnkey basis for “Toachi Pilaton” in Ecuador was signed by “TYAZHMASH” and the largest Russian energy company “INTER RAO UES”.
“Toachi Pilaton” is a hydraulic power project providing the construction of two hydraulic power plants — “Sarapullo” with total capacity of 50.4 MW and “Alluriquin” with total capacity of 204 MW using the rivers basins of Pilaton and Toachi.
This is the first project of such importance for PJSC “TYAZHMASH” as per the scope of equipment to be delivered. This project is very significant and refers to the category of large ones.

Crane and hydropower equipment for HPP Toachi was shipped to Ecuador.
The plant manufactured and shipped about 25-30% hydromechanical and hydroturbine equipment. The most part of equipment was successfully mounted at the facility by specialists of TYAZHMASH-ECUADOR.
Check assembly of the second segment gate produced according to the agreement on Toach Pilaton project was finished. The unique product possesses large dimensions. Its width is 8.43 m, height in operating position is 8.51 m from the gate crest. At that, radius of curvature is 12 m; it will retain powerful water head at Toachi dam, equal to 43 m. The facility is ready for operation. After all necessary works the gate was dismantled, painted, and packed.
After successful testing, overhead crane with capacity of 250 tons is being prepared for shipment. The crane will be shipped in November 2014. It will be installed in the underground turbine hall of HPP Alluriquin. Its main functions are mounting and further maintenance of the equipment inside (mostly – hydraulic turbines and generators).
Under the agreement with INTER RAO UES, the first shipment of equipment for hydropower facility Toachi Pilaton in Ecuador was carried out. Hydromechanical equipment for dams and intake facilities of Toachi and Pilaton was successfully shipped.
