OMZ-Spetsstal, a part of OMZ Group, has won a contract for the delivery of two hydraulic turbine shafts to Sayano-Shushenskaya hydro power plant, ordered by OAO Power Machines Company.
It is not the first order placed by OAO Power Machines Company at OMZ-Spetsstal. Currently OMZís metallurgical division is finishing work on two more hydraulic turbine billets. The first one will be shipped before the end of the month. Firm adherence to deadlines and high product quality, ensured by the DSP-120 automated steel-making facility, became the key factor in the decision.
The hydraulic shaft billet is manufactured from a 360 ton slab. The finished piece is over 9 m in length and about 3 m in diameter.
