The Ural Turbine Works completed manufacture of the equipment for retrofit of three gas compressor units ГТН-6 installed at Medvezhye field of Gazprom dobycha Nadym LLC. The contract for their retrofit was concluded with OJSC Iskra-Turbogaz in March, 2012.
It became necessary to retrofit the installed UTW production equipment due to the field development period prolongation. A suggestion for redesign of power turbine ГТН–6 for parameters of new compressors was selected from numerous variants and solutions.
The UTW’s solutions on retrofit of the existing fleet enabled Gazprom to prolong the field development period cost-effectively.
Currently the first ГТН-6 unit installation supervision is underway. All three units will be commissioned in 2014. The further retrofit of 9 remaining units will be performed subsequently.
