GE supplies gas-fired technology to Russian power plant

GE (NYSE: GE) said it is supplying a 109FA combined-cycle system and long-term services for an expansion of the Nizhnevartovsk State Regional Power Plant in Russia.

GE said the facility will operate on natural gas generated by a gas processing plant using associated petroleum gas that otherwise would be wasted by burning or flaring. By using waste gas, GE said the project supports the Russian government’s initiative to utilize 95 percent of the country’s flare gas by 2012.

The GE equipment, including a Frame 9FA Gas Turbine, a 109D-12 steam turbine and associated generators, has been shipped to the project site and installation has started. In addition to supplying the 109FA combined-cycle technology, GE will provide maintenance and support services for 12 years under an agreement designed to maintain the plant’s reliability and overall performance.

Commercial operation is planned by December of 2012. The expansion will add 400 MW of output for the site.
