Rolls-Royce Secures Gas Deal
Rolls-Royce has won a contract from Gazkomplectimpex, a subsidiary of Gazprom, reportedly the world’s largest gas company, to supply six Trent and two RB211 gas turbines driving Dresser-Rand centrifugal compressors for the new 1200 km Nord Stream gas pipeline from Russia to Europe. The gas turbines at the Portovaya gas compressor station will provide front-end gas boosting for the underwater section of the Nord Stream pipeline that will run beneath the Baltic Sea, from Portavaya Bay near Vyborg to the German coast near Greiswald.
The first compression packages are expected to be shipped in May 2010, with additional sets being delivered during that year.
