Sohu: GTD-110M will free Russia from the dominance of German and American turbines

Despite the international isolation of Russia due to the events of 2014, gas turbines of the German firm Siemens ended up in Crimea. Russia put them on the peninsula bypassing international sanctions and bypassing the consent of the manufacturer, which caused an international scandal.

Previously, Russia did not have its own turbines, relying on the products of American, German and Japanese concerns. But now it looks like the monopoly of foreign turbine suppliers in the Russian market has been shaken, writes the Chinese website Sohu.

The scandal with Siemens turbines received wide publicity, but not without positive results for Russia. Moscow has made a decision to gradually abandon Western of technologies and develop your own. So, some time ago, the Russian medium-capacity gas turbine GTD-110M was successfully tested - according to experts, it is in no way inferior to its German counterparts.

Under political instability, the development of domestic gas turbines is extremely important for Russia

- analysts of the Chinese edition believe.

The Russians are planning to first meet the needs of the Russian industry for such equipment, then offer turbines to foreign buyers. According to Sohu, Russia's western "partners" were counting on a completely different result, but their attempt to limit the Kremlin's access to modern technologies led to the fact that the Russian Federation was able to find a worthy replacement for foreign products.

Very soon, the unit will go into serial production, and the first facility where it will be delivered will be the Udarnaya TPP in Taman. The launch of the turbine at the thermal power plant is scheduled for 2023.

    abandon Western technologies and develop their own.

    I already wrote and said, if we have our own turbine ready, then let the Germans choke on their Siemens. "The spoon is good for dinner!" It is necessary to send them more often !!

    Guinea-Bissau will also be able to make gas turbines, the technologies have long been known and are not a secret to anyone. Here the question is different .... the resource of the GTD-110M, that is, the operation of the turbine from start-up to overhaul, is equal to 25 thousand hours. The service life of a similar Siemens turbine is 7,5 years of operation from turbine release to refurbishment. So count

      Given that the Buyan-M type MRK equipped with German MTU diesels have already gone for repairs, advertising and reality are different

      Turbines of Russia can be made by several other countries, General Electric (USA), Siemens (Germany), MITSUBISHI HITACHI POWER SYSTEMS (Japan), Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction (Korea) and like Mapna (Iran) is doing something. Everything, in my opinion, did not miss anyone. If Guinea-Bissau issues the name of the company, tell me or where are they?

      As for the resource, here you need to understand, delve into the details. 25 hours is less than 000 years, the assigned resource of 3 hours is about 10 years. The Germans promise 000 years without refurbishment. Whether they need any other repairs is not clear.

      Preliminarily, for the creation of the modernized GTE-110M in accordance with ISO, the following values ​​have been set: rated power 118,6 MW, efficiency 36%. The resource between overhauls is 25 hours with the number of starts no more than 000, the assigned resource is 300 with the number of starts no more than 100.

      Siemens Gas Turbine Technologies (STGT) has completed refurbishment and modernization of the GTE-160 (SGT5-2000E) gas turbine blades to the latest version of Si3D Enhanced. Thanks to the application of an improved coating, the blade life was more than doubled. This allows the blades to be operated for two service intervals without the need for intermediate refurbishment.
      The work was carried out by order of PJSC "TGC-2" for the Novgorod CHPP. The modernized turbine blades will significantly reduce the cost of equipment maintenance and operate the gas turbine for more than 10 years without refurbishment.

      Even so, the result in a few years is still good, huh?
      No one said that this is the end of development, there is room for improvement.

    Good news.
    Gas turbines in this segment are badly needed by the Russian Federation.
    And it's great that our companies will produce them against the backdrop of the global crisis.

    GTD-110M will free Russia

    the keyword will release. When it will be "liberated", then it will be possible to speculate ...
