GE Turbine Passes Acceptance Tests
GE announced that the first 32 MW MS 5002E gas turbine unit fully assembled in St. Petersburg, Russia, has successfully passed commissioning acceptance tests at REP Holding’s (REPH) Nevsky Zavod manufacturing facilities.
Under a 2008 license agreement between REPH and GE Oil & Gas, REPH is assembling “Ladoga 32” gas compressor units based on MS 5002E gas turbines in Russia. The successful acceptance test represents a milestone in REPH’s plans to sell the Ladoga gas turbine technology in Russia as the country modernizes its energy infrastructure, GE said.
A key benefit of the MS 5002E/Ladoga 32 turbine is that it can be fully serviced at the customer site, which is important under harsh weather conditions and in remote areas of Russia where transporting equipment is costly and difficult, GE said.
The MS 5002E technology is an upgraded version of GE’s MS 5002 product line, and offers high efficiency and low emissions. The product line has reached more than 16 million operating hours worldwide, according to the company.
