May 23, 2017, Rybinsk. – The program of diversification of Defense-Industrial Complex organizations in the interests of Gazprom PJSC was discussed at NPO Saturn PJSC (a part of United Engine Corporation (JSC), a Rostec State Corporation company) during the meeting of the Military-Industrial Commission Board under the Government of the Russian Federation on May 23, 2017.
The following people were involved in the work: Dmitrii Rogozin, Chairman of the Board, Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation; Aleksei Miller, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Gazprom PJSC; representatives of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation, Roscosmos State Corporation, Russian Helicopters JSC, Rosatom State Corporation, Rostec State Corporation, UEC (United Engine Corporation), companies of state corporations.
The delegation were shown the marine gas-turbine unit assembly and test facility put in service last April during the visit of Vladimir Putin, Head of the Russian State, to NPO Saturn. In the assembly and test facility the Council members familiarized themselves with an exposition of products fabricated by UEC companies, Russian Helicopters, Roscosmos with an emphasis on gas-turbine technologies of power engineering industry. In NPO Saturn’s Additive Technologies Centre they saw part samples obtained with the most state-of-the-art technologies, including components made of composite materials, as well as parts manufactured with additive technologies.
UEC’s test bench equipment in Rybinsk will enable activities aimed at the optimization of assembly and process solutions for manufactured products and allow the equipment installation and commissioning time to be reduced. The presented product line of gas-turbine engines may become part of the comprehensive long-term program of collaboration with Gazprom.
In particular, Gazprom PJSC, Gazprom Energoholding LLC and Fuel and Energy Complex companies are proposed to consider the possibility of applying GTD-110M and a combined-cycle plant on its basis in the available facilities and in facilities under construction in order to generate and supply electric power to the wholesale market as well as to meet their own electric power and heat demands. It is possible to use the engine as a gas-compressor unit drive for a liquefied natural gas plant. The upgraded engine GTD-110M is developed on the basis of the gas turbine GTD-110 within the framework of the investment agreement between Inter RAO PJSC, RUSNANO, UEC JSC, NPO Saturn PJSC. The GTD-110M engine has competitive technical characteristics as compared to foreign analogs.
Another NPO Saturn’s product - SGTG-8 – a marine gas-turbine electric generator with a capacity of 8 mW – can also be used in Gazprom’s projects.
This Russian marine duel fuel gas-turbine electric generator with automatic changeover from one fuel type to another without stop or load dropping has a smaller volume and a weight 2-3 times lighter than diesel-generators of a similar capacity. SGTG-8 can be applied for power supply of vessels, including electric propulsion systems; offshore platforms for exploration, extraction, processing, storage, and transportation of hydrocarbons; coastal infrastructure of offshore deposits; seaside industrial facilities, including autonomous ones; as a part of floating power stations.
E70/8RD-based gas-turbine units can also be used within heat power-stations of any industrial and municipal facilities for heat and electrical power generation.
In prospect NPO Saturn is going to industrialize and produce marine engines and units with a capacity of up to 25 and 31 mW on the basis of uprated M90FR engine modifications.
At the present time NPO Saturn continues deliveries and scheduled repairs of the gas-turbine engines DO49R, GTD-4RM, GTD-6.3RM(/8) and GTD-6RM for infrastructure facilities of the companies belonging to Gazprom PJSC and the Fuel and Energy Complex. About 300 industrial gas-turbine engines of different types have been manufactured at NPO Saturn for Gazprom and Fuel and Energy Complex since the start of production. In the long view the required overhaul and delivery scope for different types of engines produced by NPO Saturn PJSC and installed at electric power stations and compressor stations for Gazprom and Fuel and Energy Complex facilities is estimated at 30-40 pieces a year.
