NLMK steel for new Leningrad Nuclear Power Plant energy unit
NLMK Group, a global steel company, has supplied a batch of grain-oriented steel to Elektrozavod, a leading Russian manufacturer of transformer and reactor equipment. NLMK steel was used to manufacture 750 kV shunt reactors for power generation facilities at Rosenergoatom’s Leningrad Nuclear Power Plant new energy unit.
Electrozavod has already supplied six reactor phases to the Leningrad Nuclear Power Plant site in Sosnovy Bor, Leningrad Region. The function of shunt reactors is to increase the stability and throughput of the power grid by compensating reactive power and controlling the voltage. Installing them will ensure reliable power generation at the plant’s new and existing energy units.
Grain-oriented steel is widely used to manufacture equipment for electrical engineering and electronics. Its low magnetic losses make it indispensable in the production of transformer and reactor magnetic cores. Such properties are made possible by a particular chemical composition, low steel thickness, and a special structure. Using grain-oriented steel in equipment ensures low electric power losses, minimal heating, and high cost-effectiveness.
NLMK Group is the only manufacturer of grain-oriented steel in the CIS, representing 11% of the global market. NLMK Group’s grain-oriented steel is supplied to 60 countries.
