23 October 2015 year Mongolian Engineers to Be Trained In Ekaterinburg at UTW Site

Ural Turbine Works (ROTEC holding) is waiting for the arrival of a group of Mongolian power engineers. The delegation, comprising 10 members – specialists from Ulaanbaatar and Erdenet plants and representatives of the Ministry of Energy of Mongolia – will arrive at the site to undergo training and improve their knowledge of steam turbine equipment.

Training is planned to continue 4 days – from 26 to 29 October. It was specially developed at the initiative of the Russian side – ROTEC and UTW – with reference to equipment operated at Mongolian power plants. Training includes visits to production facilities and engineering service, theoretical and practical classes with experts from Russian companies. It is planned to invite researchers and instructors from the Turbines and Engines Department of the Ural Federal University.


"This is a unique project by today's standards, which dates back to a time when foreign specialists were trained in the USSR. Today's program aims to strengthen the cooperation with the energy sector of Mongolia and ensure efficient operation of Russian equipment in the country" – said General Director of UTW Igor Sorochan.

In recent years, business ties between Russian power engineers and Mongolian mechanical engineers have improved substantially. In March of this year, UTW completed the Ulaanbaatar CHP-4 expansion project, which was the largest project of its kind in the last 20 years. New power unit of a capacity of 123 MW was successfully commissioned. UTW not only supplied a new model of turbine for T-120/130 unit, but also acted as EPC contractor. Vnesheconombank of Russia honored the project of among the nominees of the Development Award contest as the best export project. The project became the winner of the Altan Gerege award by the President of Mongolia. In September of this year, Ural Turbine Works received a delegation from Mongolia headed by Enkhbold Zandaahuu, Speaker of the State Great Hural and Chairman of the Democratic Party of Mongolia, who expressed interest in continued cooperation.

Russian companies are ready to participate in new projects aimed at the development of the Mongolian power grid: participate in the construction of power units and upgrade existing capacities, assist their Mongolian partners in how best to improve operational staff competence.
