In the 90s and 2000s, the German Siemens concern became a monopolist in the Russian turbine market. The sharp deterioration of political and economic relations with Western countries required decisive action from Russia in order to protect itself from the dependence of the country's energy system on conditionally friendly countries.
So it was decided to create their own high-power turbine. This process lasted for years, but still brought results. The GTD-110M high-energy turbine engine has been tested and is preparing for trial operation.
Most of all in the West, this event bothered the Germans. Losing the Russian market, and even at the dawn of a large-scale program of updating and modernizing the energy system of Russia, was unacceptable. Therefore, Siemens took a desperate step and agreed to localize the production of its turbines in our country by 100%, as well as transfer key technologies to local colleagues. Previously, something similar was related to fiction.
Of course, this does not mean that the GTD-110M will be decommissioned, and the project itself is closed. Most likely, the Russian authorities will divide the market between German and domestic producers, giving the Germans the opportunity to earn money, while not leaving their energy engineers without money.
