MOSCOW, Dec 26 (Reuters) – Russian power equipment manufacturer Power Machines said on Monday it had completed assembly and testing of its first domestically made high-power gas turbine, aiming to replace imported energy equipment unavailable due to sanctions.
According to a statement, Power Machines plans to be able to produce eight 170-megawatt turbines a year by 2025 and raise annual capacity to 12 turbines in the future, as well as to ensure maintenance of gas turbines, including imported ones.
The first clients will be Russian oil company Tatneft , state energy holding InterRAO and power company Rushydro, the statement said.
Russia has for years been trying to start production of its own medium and large capacity gas turbines for power plants. But it has accelerated the process as importing and maintaining equipment in Russia has became much harder since Moscow sent tens of thousands of troops into Ukraine on Feb. 24, and the West responded with unprecedented sanctions.
Siemens Energy, General Electric, and Alstom, whose turbines were used to built modern gas power plants in Russia, are either withdrawing from the Russian market or have already suspended operations.
In addition to Power Machines, Russian state firm United Engine Corporation has said it plans to manufacture two high-power turbines a year by 2023 and four by 2025.
"The powerful turbine, which was assembled and tested at our test facility, is living proof that we are on the right track and that our goal will be achieved: Russia will have its own gas turbines, will have its own technology with full localisation," Alexander Konyukhov, head of Power Machines, was quoted as saying in the statement.
