GE, Inter RAO and Rostec open a factory
RUSSIAN GAS TURBINES, a joint venture between GE (NYSE: GE), “Inter RAO” and JSC “United Engine Corporation” (ODK, is a State Corporation Rostec) Open in g . Rybinsk plant for the production, sale and service of gas turbines 6FA (6F.03). The first two installations for the supply of the enterprises of JSC “NK” Rosneft “will be collected in 2015. The maximum production capacity is up to 20 gas turbines in the year, which will meet the demand for high-performance power units for projects combined heat and power.
Production of gas turbine 6FA in Russia – a unique example of cooperation in the field of advanced technologies in power. Turbine 6FA – high-tech product, the efficiency of which the combined cycle is more than 55%. Turbine 6FA have high reliability, compactness, ability to work on a variety of fuels, including in harsh climatic conditions, which causes widespread use 6FA in power generation, district heating and industrial cogeneration.
In the project “Russian gas turbines» GE owns 50% share, “Inter RAO” – and JDC – by 25%. Investments participants in the creation and development of production is 5 billion rubles.
Ron Pollett, president and CEO of GE in Russia / CIS stressed: «GE operates in Russia for almost 100 years. We are proud to mark the next stage of a successful long-term partnership with Russia opening a plant to produce gas turbines in Rybinsk. Starting Business in line with our overall strategy to expand its presence in the Russian market and will make a real contribution to the modernization of the country’s energy sector. The new plant will also help meet the growing demand for innovative power equipment, as well as create jobs, strengthen the prestige of the national engineering profession. ”
Boris Kovalchuk, Chairman of the Board of JSC “Inter RAO”, said: “We start production of new energy equipment, which has a high potential to be demanded in the process of renovation and development of Russian power. It is particularly important that the production of turbines 6FA has a high degree of localization of advanced energy technologies. Thus, our joint venture “Russian gas turbines” will enhance the energy security of Russia. ”
Dmitry Shugaev, Deputy Director General, SC Rostec, said: “Participation in the project is due to the DCS is primarily the task of localization of production of the main elements of a gas turbine plant 6FA factories holding. Currently, the number of specialists and GE DCS established and actively operating a working group on localization and we are confident that our joint efforts will achieve a particular result, and Russian components will meet the requirements and quality standards. ”
