Petrozavodskmash completed cladding of tubular blanks for Akkuyu NPP in Turkey

Petrozavodskmash Machine-Building Plant completed cladding of tubular blanks for the main circulation pipeline (MCP) of Unit 2 of the Turkish Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant.

The enterprise was the first in the country to master the production technology of seamless clad pipes for NPPs. Thus, an anti-corrosion layer is applied to the inner surface of the blanks by means of the electroslag surfacing method.

The operation was completed on all forgings of pipes that make up the main circulation pipeline of the power unit. In total, the length of the clad blanks exceeds 145 metres.

Petrozavodskmash manufactures equipment for four power units of the Turkish NPP, and for the second unit the company produces shells of the main circulation pumps and pressure compensators.

The plant is the Petrozavodsk branch of the engineering company AEM-technologies and is part of the machine building division of the state corporation Rosatom.
