The event took place on December 4-6, 2012. Saturn Gas Turbine’s exhibition described the company’s special areas of expertise connected with developing programs for power provision in the regions, as well as the advantages of using small distributed generation installations. Particular attention was devoted to the model of 2 mW combined cycle power unit.
Saturn Gas Turbines’ stand was visited by the Deputy Governor of the Yaroslavl Region for public utilities, Vyacheslav Blatov. As part of his meeting with the company leaders, they discussed matters of implementing programs to improve the Region’s energy efficiency – for example the project to build a PGU-TPP-52 combined cycle power station in Tutaev.
As part of the Forum there was a conference on the subject of ‘energy provision and energy conservation – the regional aspect’, in which participants talked about the need to increase energy efficiency in the Russian regions in modern conditions. Saturn Gas Turbines Director for Energy Programs Sergei Korotkevich presented a report on the subject ‘cogeneration as a means to provide thermal and electrical power to industrial enterprises and municipal schools’. The presentation drew a great deal of interest from conference participants and served as a starting point for a number of consultations with potential customers interested in lowering expenses on energy.
The aim of the Yaroslavl Energy Forum was not only to discuss regional aspects, problems, and potential development of modern power infrastructure in the Russian Federation, but also to draw public attention to these issues, including that of young people. For this reason during the Forum there was also an awards ceremony for the regional competition of creative works on energy conservation, among students and teachers at educational institutions, entitled Our Warm House. Specialists from Saturn Gas Turbines took part in awarding diplomas and prizes to the authors of the best entries in the Computer Work category. The Forum gathered more than 1,000 participants. These included industry experts, representatives from federal ministries and authorities, the Russian Academy of Sciences, heads of large companies, and also a number of Russian and international organizations working in the fuel and energy sector.
