JSC Turboatom (Kharkiv) has supplied two steam turbines to Armenian NPP. These turbines are the key equipment for the modernization of the NPP foreseen in the program of expanding its lifespan.
The external press service of Rosatom in Ukraine reported that on June 1, 2018, the Armenian NPP will be stopped for modernization and extension of the lifespan of its reactor two.
Rusatom Service, part of Rosatom, acts as general contractor for modernization.
The turbines were delivered in several stages: by land to the port in Chornomorsk, than by sea to the Poti port (Georgia) and then by rail to the NPP.
The cost of the turbines is not disclosed.
According to the report, in 2019, Ukrainian enterprises would supply a new batch of equipment for the NPP to Armenia, in particular, Zaporizhtransformator will transport an oil-cooled transformer.
Astarta agroindustrial holding, the largest sugar producer in Ukraine, has completed sowing of spring crops on around 170,000 ha.
The holding said in a press release that sugar beet was sowed on 41,000 ha, sunflower on 41,000 ha, corn on 67,000 ha, soybean on 20,000 ha, and the rest are under other crops (barley, oats, buckwheat and other).
“The structure of crop rotation reflects the existing market trends. Thus the reduction of sugar beet plantings will allow the company to organize harvesting and processing of beets in the optimal terms, focusing on the cost-efficiency and quality of sugar. In addition to own beet production Astarta will traditionally cooperate with farmers who supply its factories with sugar beets,” the company said.
The increase in areas under corn could also bring a good financial result against the backdrop of the continuing trend of price recovery for this crop.
This spring sowing campaign was conducted in a record short terms.
“All technological operations were carried out in the optimal time, which along with appropriate level of soil moisture gave a quick start to plants growing. The company is progressing in improving the efficiency of field works: we are concentrating each culture sowing on the large plots, using GPS tracking not only for tractors, but for all trailed aggregates,” the company said.
As of the end of May, winter and spring crops are mostly in good and excellent condition. The weather in the Eastern and Western production units contributes to their development.
