IN BRIEF #1-2023

Prospects for the development of T32 gas turbine plant as part of GPA-32 Ladoga gas pumping unit.

Nevsky Plant is the only domestic manufacturer of modern gas pumping units based on a stationary gas turbine with a capacity of 32 MW.

The first GPA-32 Ladoga gas pumping unit with a T32 gas turbine (based on a gas turbine type MS5002E manufactured by Nuovo Pignone, Italy) was put into operation in 2011. Currently, Nevsky Plant has manufactured and delivered more than 80 GPA-32 Ladoga gas pumping units to the facilities of the Russian gas transmission network.


Power generation management in isolated power systems of oil and gas fields.

Irkutsk Oil Company is developing its own generation creating an isolated energy system of oil and gas fields far from centralized power supply and power grid infrastructure facilities. Since 2012 power plants based on gas turbine units have been producing electricity at the facilities of the INC Group. Gas turbine power units run on associated petroleum gas, which makes it possible to simultaneously solve the problem of its utilization and provide energy to production facilities.


TAIF Rave RAO synthetic turbine oil: replacement of imported lubricants for LNG equipment.

When developing equipment for LNG production, foreign companies provide for the use of imported lubricants, they are also indicated in the operating instructions for this equipment. The most widely used lubricants in the lubrication system of compressors and gas turbines are Shell and Mobil brands. Due to the operation of the equipment in conditions of low ambient temperatures, manufacturers recommend the use of synthetic hydrocarbon-based oils due to their low-temperature properties. Such products are lubricants based on PAO (polyalphaolefins). For example, the use of Mobil SHC 824 oil is recommended in the lubrication systems of Baker Hughes compressors.


Modular gas pumping units manufactured by INGC.

Iskra-Neftegas Compressor Company (INGC) has been developing and manufacturing modern and highly efficient power equipment, gas pumping units and gas turbine power plants since 2010. The company provides a full range of services from the design, manufacture of equipment and its commissioning to post-warranty maintenance and repair. Over the past 10 years portfolio of gas pumping units with a nominal output from 4 to 34 MW has been developed, 68 units have been manufactured. Gas pumping units are supplied in modular or hangar design.


Investigation of physico-chemical processes in a hydrodynamic cavitator.

This article discusses the possibilities of using cavitation processes based on the proposed hydrodynamic cavitator for cleaning contaminated water and industrial wastewater, neutralizing water from microbes and bacteria, in particular without the use of chemical reagents or in combination with other methods. It is shown how the values of the hydrogen pH index, the hardness of water, the concentration of dissolved nitrates, sulfates, and carbonates change in this case. Cavitation processes can be used for coagulation and flotation of substances in solutions of liquids, qualitative mixing of liquids and changes in some of their properties, for desalination of seawater, etc.


Perm turbines energy for Lukoil-Komi LLC.

The gas turbine power station for own needs with an electric capacity of 100 MW was put into operation at the Usinsk oil field of Lukoil–Komi LLC in July 2016. This is the most powerful energy complex of Lukoil PJSC in the Komi Republic built on the base of domestic gas turbine units GTES-25PA.

The energy complex provides Lukoil–Komi field facilities with its own electric energy using associated petroleum gas as the main and reserve fuel.

The continuous operation of power station helps the company to reduce operating costs, increase oil production, and also solve the problem of energy shortage in the region.


Scientific substantiation and development of the modular principle of steam turbine plant creation.

The main and auxiliary steam turbine equipment is a knowledge-intensive product, and not only from the development and production point of view, but also no less knowledge-intensive at the subsequent stages of the life cycle: installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance. Therefore, approaches to the design and technological preparation of production, tools and means of maintenance of housing and communal services equipment are of particular importance.

At the same time with the development of equipment design, production technologies, tools and means of maintenance of life cycle, including operation and service, the influence of this factor on the management indicators of housing and communal services is becoming more significant. This once again indicates the increasing relevance of the introduction of modern science-based life cycle management of steam turbine equipment.


Marine gas turbine power plant.

Currently, the creation of marine and industrial small-scale gas turbine plants that meet modern requirements for reliability, durability, operational readiness, life cycle cost as well as the level of harmful emissions into the atmosphere is an urgent need especially in connection with the sanctions restrictions imposed on Russia. As part of the import substitution program implemented in recent years by the Ministry of industry and trade gas turbine plant has been developed that meets the existing requirements for marine power equipment.

The development of the concept of the plant began in 1990 under the leadership of V.A. Plotnikov and continued until 1995.


Features of hydrogen-containing natural gases transportation through existing gas pipelines.

The article considers the possibility of transporting hydrogen-containing gases with different hydrogen content (0...100%) through existing gas transmission systems under the current regulatory and parametric restrictions of gas compressor equipment with a gas turbine drive. Based on the sum of the influencing factors, the possibility of transporting hydrogen-containing gases through existing gas pipelines without carrying out significant measures is estimated at up to 10%–20% of the H2 content in the mixture.

A reference section of a modern gas pipeline with a diameter of 1420 mm with a working pressure of 9.91 MPa and a distance between the compressor stations of 120 km was chosen as the object of research.
