Russian United Engine Corporation to present its latest industrial and energy gas turbine equipment in Iran

Russian United Engine Corporation (UEC), an integrated company providing solutions in development, serial production and service of gas turbine engines for customers engaged in oil & gas, power generation, civil and defense aerospace, as well as marine and railways, will participate in the Iran Oil Show 2017 (6th  9th May, Tehran) and will present its most up-to-date gas compressor and gas turbine power generating sets, which are especially suitable for the Iranian market.

UEC considers Iran, with its booming oil & gas industry, one of the most promising future partners in the field of gas compressor and energy equipment. Technically modern Russian gas turbine units meet all the modern standards, while the price can be considerably lower compared to its competitors.

In Tehran, we are aiming to find new partners, as well as foster current cooperation, says Alexander Karaoglanov, Sales director, Head of sales of industrial and energy equipment and head of the UEC delegation at the Iran Oil Show 2017. The corporation is already negotiating with a number of Iranian companies. Also, we are ready to assess the possibility of localizing production in Iran. According to our estimates, having highly reliable gas compressor equipment in the power range of 1625 MW, is especially important for Iran. That is why we are anticipating interest in our gas compressor sets and units for power generation with rated power of up to 25 MW such as GPA-16 and GPA-25.

The guests of the UEC stand (Hall 38, 1718) at the exhibition will see the GPA-16, an automated outdoor gas compressor set rated at 16 MW, along with the mock-up of an energy complex equipped with the newest Russian gas turbine units.

Apart from the gas compressor sets, in Iran UEC is marketing its gas turbine power generating sets with a rated power of up to 25 MW  such as GTA-25 and combined cycle power plants up to 30 MW. We are offering long term maintenance and service assistance for all our products, says Karaoglanov.

The major advantage of GPA-16 for Iran lies in its power rate itself  the Iranian market needs 16 MW gas compressor sets, while other major producers do not have the units in such a power range at all. The unit is pre-fabricated, providing minimization of assembly pieces for shipment. Such a design allows reducing transportation and installation costs on site. This gas compressor set stands out among similar products in terms of operation and maintenance in severe weather conditions. Also, comparatively, the general cost of life cycle management is very low.

GTA-25 is an automated 25 MW gas turbine power generating set of either outdoor or indoor design. A highly efficient UECs PS-90GP-25 gas turbine engine, based on the PS-90A aero engine (powers Il-76 transport aircrafts and Il-96 airliners etc.), can be used as a drive. UEC considers the units power range as very relevant to Iranian needs. The GTA-25 set can be operated as a stand-alone unit or as a part of power generating plant. Following a customer request, the units can be completed with hot water-heating boilers or waste heat recovery units and a booster compression station.

UEC unites all the main Russian companies specializing in design and serial production of gas turbine engines of different applications  some of them have more than 100 years experience in this business. One of the priorities of UEC is the implementation of company development programs within the industry with introduction of new technologies according to international standards.
