Sweco’s industry consultants, together with the Russian company Soyuz, have been chosen to lead and supervise the rehabilitation of three major CHP plants in Moscow.

The contract is worth in total about SEK34 million (US$5.1 million) and Sweco’s share amounts to approximately SEK22 million.

The three CHP plants are owned by Russian power generator and Gazprom-subsidiary Mosenergo, currently the world largest thermal generation company. Mosenergo operates 17 power plants with 104 cogeneration turbines.

Sweco has signed an owner’s engineering contract, which means that the company together with Soyuz will be the client’s engineering arm throughout the whole project, including procurement consulting, technical audit and design verification.

The CHP plants will be streamlined with so-called CCGT technology and following the modernization have a capacity of up to 420 MW.
