GE Turbine for Compressors Built in Russia
Wednesday, April 04, 2012
GE Oil & Gas said the first 43,000 hp (32 MW) MS 5002E gas turbine fully assembled in St. Petersburg, Russia, has passed commissioning acceptance tests at REP Holding’s Nevsky Zavod manufacturing facilities.
Under a 2008 license agreement, REP Holding is building “Ladoga 32” gas compressor units based on MS 5002E gas turbines. The Russian firm plans to sell the Ladoga gas turbine to OAO Gazprom to power compressor stations on the Bovanenkovo-Ukhta gas pipeline.
GE said the MS 5002E/Ladoga 32 turbine can be fully serviced at the customer site, which is important due to Russia’s harsh weather and remote locations.
It said the MS 5002E technology is an upgrade from its MS 5002 product line, which has totaled more than 16 million operating hours worldwide.
