Russia’s Lukoil awards Rolls-Royce an order for two Trent 60 gas turbines

Rolls-Royce has been awarded a contract to supply two industrial Trent 60 gas turbines to provide power to Russian oil company Lukoil’s Stavrolen power plant in Budennovsk, close to the border wirh Chechnya.

Each Trent 60 unit will produce 58.5 MW of power.

In addition, exhaust heat from the engines will be recovered to drive a separate steam turbine, providing additional power to Russian electrical grid and high pressure steam to support the industrial processes of the nearby Stavrolen polyethylene plant.

The contract was awarded by Russian contracting company Synergetic Projects LLC.

The equipment will be manufactured and packaged at the Rolls-Royce facilities in Montreal, Canada and Mount Vernon, US, and will be ready for shipment from 3Q 2012 and enter into commercial service in 4Q 2013.

Denis Dolgov, vice presidentà‚ of Lukoil’sà‚ power business,à‚ said: “Rolls-Royce Trent 60 gas turbines provide a reliable, efficient and commercially competitive fit to meet [our] requirements.

“The units will enable the Stavrolen power plant to reach power capacity in compliance with our commitments under the power supply agreement signed with the Russian Power Market.”

This latest announcement follows a contract awarded last year 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.
