Bringing its business closer to its customers throughout the region, GE today celebrated the grand opening of its Energy Technology Center in Russia, located 180 kilometers outside of Moscow in the Kaluga Region. The new technology center will manufacture and service advanced power generation equipment throughout the region, helping customers keep their power plants running more reliably and efficiently. A report by the World Bank Group estimated that realizing its full energy efficiency potential could save Russia up to $80 billion annually.

The creation of the Kaluga Energy Technology Center supports GE’s strategy to tailor many of GE Energy’s products and services for the local market while growing the business’ base of highly skilled engineers in the country. These activities were designed to align with Russia’s technological and energy modernization goals.

The grand opening was attended by John Krenicki, GE vice chairman and president and CEO of GE Energy; Anatoly Dmitrievich Artamonov, governor of the Kaluga Region; and other key representatives from the Russian government and the U.S. Embassy.

“The opening of GE’s Energy Technology Center in Kaluga is a significant example of a successful partnership between Russia and foreign business in the high-tech arena and will create additional employment opportunities in the region,” said Governor Artamonov. “We are glad to support GE Energy in its contribution to one of Russia’s most important priorities—to increase energy efficiency in the power generation sector. I wish GE every success as they help Russia move towards achieving this objective.”

Through the new center, GE will further expand its footprint in Russia and provide opportunities for local employment and training in high-tech engineering jobs. By the end of 2010 GE Energy plans to have approximately 300 employees in Russia—with future plans for significant expansion.

“Russia is an energy powerhouse and central to our strategy short, medium and long term,” said Krenicki. “The opening of the Energy Technology Center underscores GE’s commitment to invest in the future of Russia and its people. It is a key part of our strategy to support our customers in Russia with the latest technologies and services across the full spectrum of the energy landscape, including power generation, water, energy services and oil and gas. It also supports our global initiative to invest and expand our presence in promising growth regions worldwide. We are accelerating the localization of our capabilities to better compete and partner for success.”

The Kaluga Technology Center follows the dedication last week of GE Energy’s Oil & Gas Technology Center in Boufarik, Algeria.

GE signed the agreement to construct the technology center in March 2009 with the government of the Kaluga region, the Kaluga Region Development Corporation and the administration of Kaluga City. The finished facility has opened just 20 months later. Supporting the concepts of energy efficiency and environmental responsibility, the Energy Technology Center features fresh-filtered air systems, heat-reflecting windows and water-saving technologies.

The Energy Technology Center will offer innovative products and services that are tailored to meet the specific needs of customers in the region. Initially, the new center will offer services for GE power generation equipment that is installed in Russia and the CIS. In later phases, the facility will add manufacturing capabilities, to support GE’s growing presence in the Russian energy sector. The site has room for significant expansion and may include other GE business units in the future.

The Kaluga facility is one of twelve GE Energy technology centers located around the globe. GE has been active in Russia since the 1920s and today offers a full range of products and services for the country’s energy sector, from oil and gas exploration and production through power generation.
