Iranian turbines will help out Russia while a domestic analogue of Siemens is being created

Moscow and Tehran signed an agreement to supply Russia with 40 high-capacity gas turbines. This was reported by the Iranian Shana agency with reference to the head of the Iranian gas engineering and development company, Reza Noshadi.

The equipment manufacturer is Mapna, which previously collaborated with the German company Siemens, which supplied turbines for the Russian Nord Streams. Cooperation between Mapna and Siemens ceased after the imposition of another package of Western sanctions on Iran.

Nevertheless, as Konstantin Dvinsky points out in his Telegram channel, cooperation with the Germans was not in vain for the Iranian side.

Mapna managed to acquire technology, as well as to localize the production of high-power turbines, in connection with which the licensing rights were transferred to the Iranian company

- the expert noted.

In the future, Mapna was able to improve the technology of colleagues from Siemens, and the Islamic Republic became a country producing gas turbines. Russia, however, does not yet have mass production of these products - only Rostec and Power Machines have the first copies of such units, but today they are being tested.

Meanwhile, the Russian Federation has a large number of Siemens turbines, which gradually fail and require scheduled repairs. At the same time, recent events with a long turbine repair for a joint venture in Canada do not allow Moscow to count on the reliability of Western companies and force it to look for other options.

At the moment, it is Iran that is the partner that can sell gas turbines to the Russian Federation, thus helping to overcome the sanctions prohibitions of the West. Russia is not able to organize its own production of equipment in a short time.

Another question is that we need to draw the right conclusions from this situation, as well as ask questions to those people who have so far prevented the implementation of such projects in our country. After all, we have the relevant developments

    Nothing changes in the Oblonskys' house.....
    The plant must be bought for the production of turbines, not turbines.
    It will be different, as with microelectronics, automotive industry, machine tool industry, aircraft industry ................

      Sometimes it's easier to buy when there is no time to make. When buying a license or a whole plant, it will stretch for many years, then where to sell excess products. For the Russian Federation, a large amount is not needed, especially since there are more important tasks for production. It will not work to make everything, and if there is an opportunity to buy under sanctions, then you should buy it.

      And who will sell the plant to you? There were attempts to buy Opel, lines for the production of chips, everything failed. The West perfectly understood the danger of technology transfer, China was also denied the transfer of the latest equipment for the production of microcircuits

    I'm shocked, they always presented Iran as a country of the 3rd world, and here they are: turbines from Iran, drones from Iran, medium-range missiles from Iran, engines for cars from Iran, a lot of spare parts for aviation from Iran ........

      In vain supported mezhduburzhuiskie sanctions against Iran. We will not become our own among strangers. It seems like they were in favor of the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons, but in fact now the United States is flooding Europe with what they forbade other, independent states. Lies and deceit by the US and NATO. And we are all on the same rake.

    30 years no one thought about the country!
  5. I remember with what rapture in the 90s the demo society destroyed Soviet factories, they began to howl: we can’t find factories - they stink - give the dough to buy Turkish shorts for trading in the bazaars! And the tapercha got excited, handsome guys! Well, well, come on, you can hide the five-year plan in six months! Forward!
