Tognum Expands Reach In Russia With Gen-Sets
Tognum has received two orders worth about US$8.4 million (€6 million) from Russia to supply distributed power plants based on gas engines. Six gas-powered MTU Onsite Energy gen-sets will be going to the end user Sakhalinmorneftegaz, a subsidiary of the Russian oil company Rosneft, with six additional gen-sets earmarked for Russian natural gas company Gazprom.
Both orders are for Model 20V 4000 L62 gas gen-sets consisting of engine, generator, base raft and control system. Each gen-set can deliver around 2 MW of electrical power and up to 2.6 MW of thermal energy.
The contractual partner in the agreement is Saturn, a Russian manufacturer of distributed power generation systems. Saturn initially concentrated on gas turbine plants, but in light of growing demand for smaller-scale generation systems, the company has signed its first contract for gas gen-sets with MTU Onsite Energy. The gen-sets, scheduled for delivery this year, will be going to the Russian island of Sakhalin to deliver heat and power for the oil field now under development. The gen-sets will drive pumps and drilling plants as well as provide energy for the 500 people living in the area.
The second order involves the sale of gas gen-sets to Intertech, a Dutch company that installs gen-sets in containers. Four of the finished container gen-sets are for power generation in Kursk, Russia, while the other two will be going to Volgograd, Russia. Kursk plans to expand the power supply system in the region over the coming years, Tognum said.
