LUKOIL Turns To Rolls-Royce Again For Power
Rolls-Royce has received a contract to supply two industrial Trent 60 gas turbines to power LUKOIL’s Stavrolen power plant in Budennovsk, Russia. Synergetic Projects LLC, a Russian contracting company and general contractor of the Stavrolen power plant, provided the contract to Rolls-Royce.
Each Trent 60 unit, which features low emissions technology, will produce 58.5 MW of power. Exhaust heat from the engines will be recovered to drive a separate steam turbine, providing additional power to the Russian electrical grid and high pressure steam to support industrial processes of the Stavrolen polyethylene plant, Rolls-Royce said.
The announcement follows a contract received in 2011 to supply LUKOIL with five Rolls-Royce Bergen diesel engines, each producing 5.2 MW to provide power for pumping, refining and related services at the LUKOIL diamond mine in the Arkhangelsk region of Russia.
