Siemens to supply gas turbine-generators to the Russian oil company Rosneft

Erlangen, Germany, Sep. 15, 2009 - Siemens Energy has received an order from Russia for the supply of six industrial gas turbine generators. Purchaser is OOO RN-Tuapsinskiy NPZ, a subsidiary of the major Russian oil company OAO Rosneft. The gas turbine-generators will be operated in the Tuapse refinery located on the Black Sea. The order is valued at approximately EUR90 million.

The SGT-800 gas turbine features high efficiency and low life-cycle costs. It is used for simple cycle power generation, for combined cycle power generation (CCPP) and because of its excellent waste heat recovery potential it is ideal for combined heat and power (CHP). The photo shows the SGT-800 gas turbine with a capacity of 47 megawatts at the Finspong plant in Sweden.

The order encompasses six gas turbines and six generators that are needed for the generation of electricity and steam to accommodate expansion of the Tuapse refinery's capacity. Tuapse is an important petroleum port on the Black Sea. The customer OOO RN-Tuapsinskiy NPZ is currently undertaking extensive expansion and upgrading projects at the refinery to increase the plant's capacity from a current 5 million to about 12 million metric tons (38 million to 88 million barrels). At the same time refining depth will be increased from 56 to 95 percent.  

"Being able to offer both gas turbines and generators together allows us to uniquely optimize our oil and gas power solutions," said Tom Blades, CEO of the Oil & Gas Division at Siemens Energy. "We have already obtained several gas turbine orders from Rosneft. This highlights our strong cooperation with the customer as well as the impressive characteristics of the combination of Siemens gas turbines and generators in terms of efficiency, reliability, and quality."

The SGT-800 stands out with its first-class efficiency, high availability and reliability, and low life cycle costs. NOX emissions are minimized thanks to its Dry Low Emissions (DLE) combustion system. A critical project requirement for the gas turbines being supplied to the Tuapse refinery is their capability to operate on various fuels. The SGT-800's DLE system is unique in that it can achieve low emissions on a wide variety of fuels.

Including this order, 29 SGT-800 gas turbines have already been ordered by customers from Russia or have been delivered to Russia. For instance, between 2007 and 2008 Siemens received  orders from Rosneft for a total of seven SGT-800' machines for the gas turbine power plant at the Priobskoye oil field.

In June 2009, the Kolomenskoe gas turbine power plant in Moscow, supplied by Siemens with three SGT-800 machines, was able to start commercial operation. The cogeneration power plant supplies the Russian capital with 136 megawatts of electricity as well as 171 Gcal/hour of district heat. Overall plant efficiency is 83 percent.
