Thousandth industrial gas turbine unit to a customer from UEC-Perm Engines

JSC UEC-Perm Engines (UEC-PE, included into United Engine Corporation of State Corporation Rostec) handed over the thousandth gas turbine unit (GTU) of industrial application to customer’s operation.

GTU-25P No.87-100 designed for Gryazovetskaya Compressor Station incorporated into Gryazovets-Vyborg gas pipeline (Vologodsk Region) has been solemnly handed over to PJSC Gazprom at the ceremony held in industrial engines assembly shop of UEC-PE. The certificate for the thousandth anniversary engine was granted to Aleksandr Kaydash, Head of production department on compressor stations operation (POEKS), OOO Gazprom transgaz Ukhta (Ltd.).

Gryazovets-Vyborg gas pipeline was built for gas transmission to starting point of Nord Stream gas pipeline. Currently Gryazovetskaya compressor station applies two GTU-12P units of UEC-PE manufacture. GTU-25P is the first unit with 25 MW rate operated at this site.

The ceremony of handing over the thousandth engine was attended by Sergei Popov, Managing Director of JSC UEC-Perm Engines, Aleksander Inozemtsev, Managing Director – General designer of JSC UEC-Aviadvigatel, Aleksey Chibisov, Minister of Industry, Entrepreneurship and Trading of Perm Region, Artur Kocharyan, Deputy General Director on production, OOO Gazprom transgaz Chaykovskiy, and others.

“We appreciate trust Gazprom expresses to our company – said Sergei Popov, Managing Director of JSC UEC-Perm Engines – Actually more than 2/3 of total number of orders for gas turbine engine manufacture for industrial use are placed by this particular company. If there is a need, we are ready to release more engines for Gazprom, production capacities allow doing so”.

“It’s a great honor for me to be here today. We operate 85 Perm engines with the set rate of 1750 MW. In 2021 we will overcome the barrier of 2000 MW. By operating GTUs in various climate conditions and due to our fruitful cooperation with the company we have ensured high level of reliability not only of this engine but for the whole line of PS-90 engines. I would like to express my gratitude to the designers and manufacturers of the gas turbine unit. We will do everything to expand our collaboration in the future”, in turn, noted Aleksandr Kaydash, Head of production department on compressor stations operation (POEKS), OOO Gazprom transgaz Ukhta (Ltd.).

Most of gas turbine units supplied by UEC-PE to customers are based on highly-efficient engine of PS-90GP family constituting UEC’s best seller in the sector of industrial gas turbine engines. These engines relate to the largest and highly sought market sector of 16 – 25 MW units. They are ones of the most reliable “ground” engines which are up to the best world standards in terms of their performance. PS-90GP engines have showed time between failures over 100 000 hours.

PS-90GP family engines rated at 10, 12, 16 and 25 MW can be applied as mechanical drive incorporated into gas pumping units and as power generator drive in gas turbine power generating sets. They are derived from the family of aircraft engines PS-90A (intended for use at IL-76, IL-96, TU-204/214).

Gas turbine engine of PS-90GP type is designed by JSC UEC-Aviadvigatel (carrying out continued airworthiness and modification activities based on the operation experience) and manufactured by JSC UEC-Perm Engines.
