The operation is aimed to conduct high-voltage and hydraulic tests of the equipment prior to the final assembly.
With the use of mechanical appliance the rotor, whose weight is over one hundred tons, and length is 15 meters, was brought out of the stator. Then with the use of a bridge crane it was moved to the test site. It was necessary to negotiate a certain complexity during the operation, that is, to precisely determine the slinging point taking into account the center of mass, part of the rotor being inside the stator. The air gap between the rotor circumference and stator bore did not exceed 40 millimeters.
Now the experts shall check the reliability of a number of the stator elements that ensure its safe operation, as follows: they will perform the terminal leadouts insulation check, high-voltage tests and hydraulic tests of the winding and stator core. After that the rotor will be finally brought into the stator and connected with the turbine shaft line.
