• Sakhalin Energy Company Picks Proven Technology for Plant Expansion;
• Project Meets Region’s Needs, Supports Modernization of Russia’s Energy Infrastructure.

GE’s (NYSE: GE) LM6000 aeroderivative gas turbine technology has been selected for a power plant expansion that will help the local power system to meet the growing electricity and heating needs of the city of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk on Sakhalin Island in eastern Russia. GE will supply three LM6000-PF Sprint aeroderivative gas turbines, each with an output of 46 megawatts, to Sakhalin Energy Company, a leading oil and gas energy source for the Asia-Pacific region.

These new GE turbines will help avoid energy shortages and meet the growth demands of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, a city of about 174,000 people and the administrative center of the Sakhalin region. The gas turbines, scheduled for delivery in March 2012, will support the new Block 4 of the TEC-1 power station expected to begin commercial operation in the first quarter of 2013. In addition to addressing the region’s power shortage, the project also supports the Russian government’s initiative to modernize the country’s energy infrastructure.

“It was critical to have a trusted technology supplier for this very important project, and GE’s ability to supply proven technology for power plants is well known in Russia,” said Nikolay Kran, general director of SK Energostroy, the general contractor company for this project.

GE’s LM6000-PF Sprint aeroderivative gas turbine operates at high efficiency, features superior fuel consumption and flexibility and enables lower emissions and water usage compared to other units in its class. The technology is approved under ecomagination, GE’s commitment to develop customer-focused solutions with lower environmental impacts.

“Having a reliable supply of power is critical to the future economic growth of this region and to the quality of life of its citizens,” said Alexander Podolyanko, general director of the Sakhalin Energy Company, one of the largest energy companies in Sakhalin and the owner of the new Block 4 at TEC-1 power station.

The LM6000 offers reliability of greater than 99 percent and availability of more than 97 percent, along with a high level of operating flexibility and proven dry low nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions technology that guarantees NOx emissions as low as 50 mg/nm3. The machine’s high efficiency enables lower fuel consumption per unit of power output than competitive technologies, yielding fuel cost savings and carbon dioxide reductions for turbine operators.

“The proven reliability and overall performance of our LM6000 technology were keys to our selection by Sakhalin Energy Company for this power plant expansion, which is expected to play a significant role in the continuing growth of the region,” said Cristiano Tortelli, president of GE Energy for Central and Eastern Europe, Russia & CIS. “The project builds upon our commitment to serve as a strategic partner and a reliable technology supplier for our customers across Russia as they work to modernize and expand the nation’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.

In 2010, GE opened the Energy Technology Center, a service center that is located in the Kaluga Region and dedicated to supporting the company’s installed base of equipment. In September of 2011, GE signed a joint venture agreement with INTER RAO UES and UEC to localize production of GE’s 6FA heavy duty gas turbines in Rybinsk, Russia. Also in 2011, GE’s Energy Engineering Moscow office (EEM) is marking its 10th anniversary. The EEM plays a vital role in supporting GE’s efforts to help customers in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) modernize and upgrade the region’s aging energy infrastructure.
