Four power plants help secure energy supply in rapidly growing economy. MAN Energy Solutions is supplying generation technology for a new power plant in Sreepur, Bangladesh, and has successfully commissioned three other power plants in the cities of Chandpur, Thakurgaon and Narayanganj. Combined, the four power plants will feed 445 MW into the national grid.

MAN Energy Solutions will supply 9 x MAN 18V48/60TS engines, with a total capacity of 150 MW, to the new power plant in Sreepur, a city north of the capital, Dhaka. Scheduled for completion in late 2023, the plant will be operated by independent power producer, B-R Powergen Limited (BRPL).


A subsidiary of Eni - Arm Wind LLP has started commercial operation of the Badamsha wind park. The station is located in the north-west of Kazakhstan. GE's 4,9-158 Cypress wind turbines are the most powerful among those in Kazakhstan.


The project is being implemented in the Karauzyak district by ACWA Power. 25 V136-4.2 wind turbines  of Vestas Wind Systems A/S will be installed at the station, a 20-kilometer 220 kV line is being built to  integrate the wind park into the country's energy system.


GPA-16-102/2.5 Volga gas pumping units have been put into pilot operation at the booster compressor station of the Severo-Russkoye field (Novatek-Tarkosaleneftegaz). They are developed on the base of compressor units of PJSC Kazancompressormash (HMS Group) and gas turbine plants manufactured by KMPO. The unit based on the NK-16 gas turbine engine and 4GTS2-146/41-102 centrifugal compressor has a capacity of 9 million m3 per day and a final pressure of 10 MPa. The units are designed to compress natural gas as part of the external transport booster compressor station.

The 4GTS2-146/41-102 unit includes a compressor unit (compression housing and multiplier on one frame), lubrication unit, oil air cooling unit, oil supply system, gas pipelines. Dry gas dynamic seals are used as the end seals of the compressor rotor. The automated control system allows to monitor the operation of the equipment without the presence of maintenance personnel.


Siemens Energy has received the order to deliver its HL-class power plant technology to South Korea. The equipment will be used in the Eumseong Unit 1 combined cycle power station, which is under construction in Eumseong in northwestern Chungcheongbuk-do Province. The client is Korea East-West Power Co, Ltd, a subsidiary of South Korea's state-owned utility Korea Electric Power Corp.


Three gas pumping units manufactured by KMPO JSC have been put into operation at the booster compressor station of external transportation at the Harbeyskoye oil and gas condensate field.

The units are located in the separate easy-build shelter of the hangar type - one production room for the drive and compressor, with a lateral arrangement of the exhaust system. This design provides convenience in the repair and maintenance of components and modules of the unit. The compressor is driven by NK-16-18ST gas turbine engine with a nominal output of 18 MW.


Alfa Balt Engineering has manufactured and supplied two NORD-2500-0.4 UHL1 container power plants each rated at 2500 kW based on Rolls-Royce Power Systems AG diesel engines and Leroy-Somer generators for the project. Power plants are the source of power supply for gravity-type bases and use marine fuel.
