Overhaul Project of Brazil Candiota Power Plant Implemented Trial Run with Full Load
At 10:18 am on April 7th Brazil local time, EPC overhaul project of Brazil Candiota Power Plant implemented the trial run with full load. At present, the unit is running smoothly with excellent performance indexes.
During the overhaul process, all the staff members effectively overcome the difficulties such as short procurement time of spare parts, large quantities of spare parts for overhaul, untimely availability of civil work fronts for installation etc. They have successfully executed the seven activities of back-charging, steam turbine box-up, boiler light-up, steam turbine rolling, synchronization and full-load trial run without any failure. At the same time, SEPCO1 replaced the steam turbine blades and seal insert-teeth for the first time at site. It provides valuable experience for the company to carry out similar overseas projects in the future.
