Gazprom boosting reliability of energy supply to Moscow and Urals

“Today for the first time in the history of Gazprom two new combined cycle gas turbine units with an aggregate capacity of 840 MW have been commissioned at once. All in all, since entering the power industry in 2007 Gazprom commissioned some 7 GW of new capacities so far.

The commissioning of CCGT-420 in Moscow marks the completion of the Mosenergo investment program under the capacity supply agreements. Overall, seven cutting-edge combined cycle gas turbine units with an aggregate capacity of 2.9 GW (more than 21 per cent of the company’s total installed capacity) were built at Mosenergo power plants. Over the period of operation, combined cycle gas turbine units proved their production and economic efficiency, making it possible to save natural gas and significantly reduce air emissions.”
