The rotor was delivered and installed after the old unit was dismantled, which Barrus also transported back to the factory in Gorelovo by rail. The new rotor measured 11.5 m x 3.3 m x 3.3 m and weighed 107.1 tonnes.

As part of the five-month project, Barrus prepared the transport documents, obtained permits for the oversized transport and loading operations, and produced the necessary railway drawings.
