Alexey Texler visits Ural Turbine Works and the ROTEC Hot-Duct Gas-Turbine Parts Refurbishment Center
On July 12th, 2016, Mr. Alexey Texler, the RF's First Deputy Minister of Energy, visited the Ural Turbine Works, and the ROTEC Hot-Duct Gas-Turbine Parts Refurbishment Center. Together with Mr. Mikhail Lifshitz, Chairman of the Board of Directors of ROTEC JSC, and Mr. Igor Sorochan, CEO of UTW CJSC, he toured the production workshops, and was shown the plans for the plant's future development.
At the UTW machine-assembly shop, Mr. Teksler inspected ready-for-assembly parts and units of the T-295 turbine. This is one of the most powerful co-generation turbines in the world, and is manufactured by UTW for MosEnergo JSC. Mr. Igor Sorochan, CEO of UTW, spoke to the First Deputy Minister about the implementation progress in other strategic orders - and in particular, about the turbines being manufactured for power units currently being built in Sakhalin, and in Kaliningrad. The involvement of Ural Turbine Works in manufacturing marine-type turbines for nuclear-powered icebreakers - fulfilling orders from Rosatomflot - was also discussed.
Later on Mr. Teksler visited the ROTEC Hot-Duct Gas-Turbine Parts Refurbishment Center, opened by ROTEC Holdings in May this year. This is the first enterprise of its kind in Russia - providing a full process chain for the refurbishment of hot-gas duct parts (rotating blades and guide-vanes, combustion chambers, nozzles, etc.) for gas power turbines.
