Thermal and Mechanical Department is a leading department of the Institute. The Department performs a process design of power facilities:
and other process facilities.
Large scope of design works is performed also with respect to modernization, retrofitting, and reconstruction of energy sources of various types, purposes, and fuel use types. Activity of the Department is oriented on the continuous enhancement of efficiency of decisions made and quality of projects performed.
Range of Services
The Department contains the following divisions:
Thermal engineering sectors develop:
Heating engineers make the heat calculations of diagrams for power plants, calculations for strength and homing action of process pipelines of any purpose, select and coordinate specifications for primary and auxiliary equipment with manufacturers.
Fuel supply sector develops schemes and design documents for fuel-handling facilities of power plants of solid, liquid, and gaseous fuels including handling devices, crushers, junction towers, conveyer belt housings, fuel oil-handling equipment, gas control points etc. The sector performs design works on accessory buildings and structures of power plant and boiler plants.
Water treatment sector designs water treatment plants (WTP) of various purposes for power plants taking into account the water-chemistry conditions of TPP. In the design, the leading world technologies in the field of water treatment are used with the application of modern equipment and consumables (ion-exchange resins, membrane technologies etc.). WTP process flow diagrams stipulate a maximum reduction in wastewater and reagent consumption, and a reutilization of discharges in TPP cycle.
