Russian steel maker NLMK Group has supplied a batch of transformer steel to leading Russian manufacturers of transformer and reactor equipment
Russian steel maker NLMK Group has supplied a batch of transformer steel to leading Russian manufacturers of transformer and reactor equipment Elektrozavod. The steel was used in the production of 750 kV shunt reactors for power distribution facilities of the new power unit of the Leningrad NPP of Rosenergoatom.
Six phases of the reactors manufactured by Electrozavod have already been delivered to the Leningrad NPP site in Sosnovy Bor, Leningrad Region. Shunt reactors are needed to increase the stability and capacity of the power grid by compensating for reactive power and controlling voltage levels. Their installation will make it possible to ensure reliable power delivery of not only the new, but also the existing units of the Leningrad NPP.
NLMK Group is the only transformer steel producer in the CIS and holds 11% of the world market. NLMK Group transformer steel is supplied to 60 countries of the world.
