GE Energy to Provide Six Aeroderivative Gas Turbines for Largest Private Power Stations in Russia

HOUSTON, TEXAS-May 29, 2007-The two largest private power stations in Russia will feature six GE Energy LM6000-PD Sprint® aeroderivative gas turbines, each rated at 46 megawatts. The additional power at both stations will help reduce the heat and power deficits in developing Moscow suburbs and will allow new construction to resume in the area.

The Tereshkovo Power Station is located in a southwest Moscow suburb and the Kozjuhovo Power Station is in an east Moscow suburb. The two power stations will each receive three units, which will be used for heat and electrical power.

GE Energy's LM6000-PD Sprint aeroderivative gas turbines will operate in cogeneration cycle to supply hot water to the district heating systems. Each power station will produce 150 gigacalorie (Gcal) per hour for the district heating system and 150 megawatts of power to the local power grid. The primary fuel is natural gas.
The LM6000-PD Sprint aeroderivative gas turbines will be manufactured at GE's industrial aeroderivative gas turbine facility in Evendale, Ohio. The overall package construction and testing will be conducted at the GE Energy packaging facility in Houston, Texas.

The gas turbines were shipped from Houston to the Tereshkovo Power Station in May 2007. The Kozjuhovo Power Station units will be shipped to Moscow in the middle of 2007.

The Tereshkovo Power Station is expected to begin commercial operation before winter season 2007.

"With the addition of the Kozjuhovo and Tereshkovo power stations, GE will now have a total of 21 LM gas turbine packages on order and in operation in Russia. GE Energy is pleased to help Moscow with its heating and power needs," said Charles (Chip) Blankenship, general manager of GE Energy's aeroderivative division business.
