• Nizhnevartovsk Power Plant to Demonstrate Affordable Electricity Generation from Waste Gas;
• Project Supports Government Initiative to Use 95 Percent of Country’s Flare Gas by 2012;
• Using GE 109FA Combined-Cycle Technology and Services, Plant to Add 400 MWs of Power.

GE (NYSE: GE) is supplying a 109FA combined-cycle system and long-term services for an expansion of the Nizhnevartovsk State Regional Power Plant that will help to meet growing electricity demands while also demonstrating how flare gas can be effectively used to generate affordable electricity in Russia.

The facility will operate on natural gas generated by a gas processing plant using associated petroleum gas that otherwise would be wasted by burning or flaring. By using waste gas, the project supports the Russian government’s initiative to utilize 95 percent of the country’s flare gas by 2012. A study issued by GE earlier this year estimated that flaring wastes 5 percent of the world’s natural gas each year.

The GE equipment, including a Frame 9FA Gas Turbine, a 109D-12 Steam Turbine and associated generators, has been shipped to the project site and installation has started. Commercial operation is planned by December of 2012.

The Nizhnevartovsk plant is one of the largest suppliers of electrical power in Russia’s Urals Federal District and serves the steadily growing city of Nizhnevartovsk. The expansion will add 400 megawatts of output for the site. In addition to supplying the 109FA combined-cycle technology, GE will provide maintenance and support services for 12 years under an agreement designed to maintain the plant’s high reliability and overall performance.

“With its growing economy, Russia offers great opportunities and is a key growth area for GE,” said Cristiano Tortelli, president and CEO, GE Energy, Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and CIS. “The Nizhnevartovsk project addresses a potential energy shortage while also supporting the continuing modernization and expansion of Russia’s energy infrastructure.”

GE has been operating in Russia since the early 20th century and today has 2,500 employees in the country. GE is represented across the country in multiple industries including healthcare, transportation, aviation, electric power, oil and gas, water treatment, financial services, media, appliances, lighting and intelligent platforms.

Since March of 2008, GE’s MS5002E gas turbines have been manufactured, tested and sold in Russia as LADOGA 32 units, under a technology transfer and localization licensing agreement between GE and REP Holding. In 2010, GE opened an Energy Technology Center located in Russia’s Kaluga Region, which is manufacturing and servicing advanced power generation equipment throughout the region. In September of this year, GE signed a joint venture with INTER RAO UES and UEC to localize production of GE’s 6FA heavy duty gas turbines in Rybinsk, Russia.
