PJSC "Dnepropolymermash" manufactured and supplied a thrust bearing for the hydraulic equipment of the HPP. Thrust bearings of vertical generators are designed to absorb the axial load from the weight of the hydraulic unit rotor and axial water pressure and to transfer these loads through the supporting parts to the foundation of the machine building. In this regard, the thrust bearing is a schematically a sliding bearing is a structure of two rubbing surfaces placed in an oil bath. The lower non-rotating surface, which is the support, is installed on the fixed part of the hydraulic unit, and the upper rotating one is securely fixed on its shaft. They are one of the most important structural units of the hydraulic unit.
