GE Energy Provides First LM2500+G4 Units In Russia To Support Cement Production Plant
HOUSTON, TEXAS - September 26, 2006 :- GE Energy will provide OAO Mordovcement the first two LM2500+G4 aeroderivative gas turbines in Russia. They will be utilized at the Mordovcement power station, located in Mordovia republic near Saransk, and the electricity produced will be used to power several cement production facilities.
The LM2500+G4 DLE packages are rated at approximated 32 megawatts each. The scope of the contract also includes a motor control center. The units will run on natural gas and be used in simple-cycle with the exhaust gas going to the cement production process.
“This is a very unique project as it is the first time that the exhaust from one of GE Energy’s LM gas turbines will be used to dry raw materials for cement production,” said Charles (Chip) Blankenship, general manager, GE Energy’s aeroderivative business. “By installing these units, Mordovcement will be able to operate its cement production facilities in a more efficient manner.”
The LM2500+G4 DLE packages are scheduled for delivery in August 2007 and plant operation will begin at the end of 2007.
