BAKU, Azerbaijan, Aug. 26

By Fakhri Vakilov - Trend:

In order to increase the production capacity of installations in oil and gas production and natural gas processing plants, Uzbekistan’s Shurtan Gas Chemical Complex signed a long-term contract with the Swedish company Siemens Energy for the provision of services, Trend reports citing Uzbekistan’s Uzbekneftegaz.

On the basis of this agreement, Siemens Energy will undertake preventive and emergency maintenance of a gas turbine, one of the main installations of the enterprise, for 15 years.

Within the framework of this agreement, Siemens Energy will carry out a number of works to supply the necessary spare parts for the gas turbine and to involve its specialists in regular control work, as well as remote monitoring of the state of the gas turbine plant, as well as modernization of the detection and fire extinguishing system.

In addition, to improve the qualifications of the complex's employees, training courses are provided at the Siemens Energy Advanced Training Center in Sweden.

The conclusion of a long-term service agreement with Siemens Energy will ensure uninterrupted operation and prompt repair of the gas turbine and its auxiliary equipment over the next 15 years.

This, in turn, is of great importance on the eve of the launch of the Uzbekneftegaz GTL plant, which is technologically connected with the Shurtan gas chemical complex.

It should be noted that Siemens Energy is a manufacturer of gas turbines and engines, and one of the leaders in the energy sector. It covers almost the entire energy chain with a wide range of products, solutions and services offered by the company.

Siemens Energy solutions include conventional and renewable energy sources. These include gas and steam turbines, hydrogen hybrid power plants, generators and transformers.

Uzbekistan is one of the main markets for Siemens Energy in Central Asia. In 2017, the company announced the launch of a large-scale cooperation program “Initiative for Uzbekistan”, within the framework of which a number of bilateral agreements were signed on the fuel and energy complex, “smart cities” (digitalization of urban infrastructure), wind energy, as well as technological partnerships in the development of healthcare.
