In November 2011, Perm Engine Company (PMZ) carried out repairs to two √“”-10Ō gas turbine units belonging to NOVATEK-Tarkosaleneftegaz. These 10 mW gas turbine units are used at the Khancheiskaya compressor station.
In order to meet the oil companyís wishes to speed up the work (because the breakdown of these two units had taken the entire compressor station off-line), PMZ specialists carried out the repairs in record time. To repair the fault in the first unit, for which the entire assemblage had to be taken apart at the Perm Engine Company, they took just 52 days even though according to the contract a minimum of three months is allotted for such repairs. The second unit was repaired on-site in just three days.
NOVATEK-Tarkosaleneftegaz sent a letter of gratitude to the Perm Engine Company team, thanking them for their hard work in repairing the Khancheiskaya compressor station gas turbine units quickly and well. The good work by the PEC team allowed the oil company to bring things back on-line quickly, minimizing their operating losses.
