Ural Turbine Works negotiates for cooperation with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries of Japan

11 September 2006 (10:58)

Given the global leadership of Japanese producers of powerful gas turbines and the design projects of Ural turbine makers (some projects provide for an over 57% coefficient of efficiency of a steam-gas turbine), these two parties, represented by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Ural Turbine Works (part of Renova Group), respectively, have impressively good grounds for close cooperation. This was the conclusion made by the executives of Russian and Japanese enterprises in the course of negotiations held in Yekaterinburg.

MHI isn’t the first the first foreign company to take interest in our works. The global producers bear in mind the inevitable and forthcoming modernization of Russian power engineering industry and therefore want to break into our domestic power machine building market. Our company, on its part, is willing to expand its own opportunities and enter the international markets,’ said General Director of Ural Turbine Works Vitaliy Nedelskiy.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries currently produce 7% of the global power facilities, and Ural Turbine Works produces 20.5% of all steam turbines used in Russia.

During their stay, the Japanese executives introduced their Ural counterparts to the capacity of their high-power gas turbines. Besides, the Japanese delegation examined the shops of the plant, including the gas turbine and turbine blade production sites and the testing stand for rotor balancing. In the end, both parties showed mutual interest in cooperation and joint promotion of steam-gas equipment with 57% and up coefficient of efficiency on the global power machine market. The negotiations will resume in October, reports the spokesperson for Ural Turbine Works.
