    Russian Railways GTh1-002 main gas turbine locomotive enters service

    Russian Railways has delivered a GT1h-002 main gas turbine locomotive for operation on the Sverdlovsk railways route.

    The GT1h-002 main gas turbine locomotive, which runs on liquefied natural gas (LNG), will begin regular operation on the Egorshino–Alapayevsk–Serov-Sortirovochny route. Trials will now be carried out on a non-electrified test route north of the Sverdlovsk mainline, where there are plans to start operating such vehicles.

    GTh1-002 Main Gas Turbine Locomotive drove train weighing 9,000 tons


    The locomotive has been designed to drive trains with increased weight and length. In May 2016, during a test run, the GTh1-002 drove a train weighing 9,000 tons on the 700km Surgut–Voinovka route without the need to refuel en route.


    Sverdlovsk Railway’s has the necessary infrastructure to operate the GT1h-002 including, extensive non-electrified sections of different profiles suitable for gas turbine locomotives. Furthermore, a LNG complex was built near Yekaterinburg with a special station for fuelling rolling stock.


    The introduction forms part of the Energy Strategy for JSC Russian Railways and is an alternative to expensive diesel fuel. The move will also help to reduce harmful emissions by rail freight transportation.

    ODC is testing the first domestic energy turbine engine high power

    Produced by United Engine Corporation (part of the State Corporation Rostec) under the import substitution program is the first Russian gas turbine power plant with capacity of 110 MW GTE-110M first two stages of tests successfully passed. The second half of 2017 are planned to test resource rotor blades of the turbine stage 1, then long-term comprehensive tests, and for 2018 - start of series production.

    GTD-110M capacity of more than 110 MW - single-shaft gas turbine, for use in a combined cycle gas turbine power plants and high power. It is the result of deep modernization GTD-110 gas turbine engine. Today in Russia not commercially produced domestic gas turbines in the power class of over 110 MW.

    Work on the project GTD-110M conducted LLC "Engineering Center" Gas turbine technology "- a joint venture, which includes the PSC" Inter RAO UES ", JSC" Rosnano "and the manufacturer of the turbine PJSC" NPO "Saturn" (included in the ODK, located in the city Rybinsk, Yaroslavl region.). Creating GTD-110M is a strategic project implemented within the framework of the import substitution program in the field of gas turbine technology in the Russian Federation and the State Corporation Rostec active support of the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

    The first two stages of prototype testing GTD-110M, which took place on a test bench of "Stand" (Komsomolsk, Ivanovo region.), Confirmed the effectiveness of implemented priority R & D project. In particular, the estimation of interstitial measures to reduce the dynamic stresses of the rotor blade stage 1 and measures to ensure the combustion chamber of the resource, and the thermal efficiency of the enclosure. The tests of thermal barrier and wear-resistant coatings of flame tubes and thermal barrier coatings of nanostructured working turbine blades.

    "Holding" Engineering Center "Gas turbine technology" and "Saturn" work has shown loyalty to the chosen solutions aimed at addressing the "childhood diseases" GTD-110. As a result, the key technical and economic parameters GTD-110M is competing with the best foreign analogues, - said Deputy General Director of JSC "United Engine Building Corporation" - the head of the division "Energy and industrial program" Sergei Mikhailov. - In the near future we will be ready to offer potential customers competitive engines. According to preliminary estimates, the demand of the domestic market only in the gas turbine based on the GTD-110M is up to 80 units by 2030. "

    Currently PAO "" Saturn "NPO working to establish a low emission combustion chamber (IEAC) for the GTD-110M, design documentation which is designed in accordance with the global trends meet environmental standards. Earlier of "VTI" and Federal State Unitary Enterprise "TsIAM" bench tests IEAC prototype were performed at low to complete parameters, the results of which are fully confirmed by the technical specifications and provided with NOx emissions of less than 50 mg / Nm3, CO - not more than 10 mg / Nm3 .

    "Work on the quality of the new product - GTD-110M - enabled" Saturn "to expand the design, engineering and manufacturing expertise, - said Deputy General Director - Managing Director of PJSC" NPO "Saturn" Victor Polyakov. - Capacities of the enterprise is currently allow up to two items per year, but the "Saturn" developed the concept of expanding production to serial production GTD-110M in the amount of 6-10 units per year, which will meet the needs of the power equipment of the Russian market. "

    A significant advantage of GTD-110M to its foreign counterparts is a high efficiency - 36,5% (ISO), which favorably affects the cost of the product lifecycle. Moreover, the unique weight and size characteristics of the GTD-110M allow its transportation even in remote regions of the country in full operational readiness by any means of transport, as well as perform turbine assembly by replacing outdated equipment without reconstruction of the station building. Among other features GTD-110M - good dynamics of growth and discharge of the power transient, high levels of fuel efficiency, low cost of production of electric and thermal energy.

    Russian Traxx unveiled at Engels locomotive plant inauguration

    http://www.railwaygazette.com/news/traction-rolling-stock/single-view/view/russian-traxx-unveiled-at-engels-locomotive-plant-inauguration.html



    RUSSIA: The prototype 1 520 mm gauge Bombardier Traxx F120MS locomotive was unveiled at a ceremony marking the inauguration of First Locomotive Co’s factory at Engels in Saratov oblast on August 19.

    The First Locomotive Co joint venture of Russian investors and Bombardier Transportation was established in 2012 with the aim of bringing modern development and manufacturing technologies to Russia. The factory in Engels has been built in two years at cost of 6·7bn roubles, funded by Vnesheconombank, the state Bank for Development & Foreign Economic Affairs, and will have the capacity to produce up to 150 twin-section electric freight locomotives a year for Russia and the 1520 region.

    Designated the Type 2EV120 in Russia, the 120 km/h dual-system Traxx F120MS is designed to haul trains of 7 000 to 9 000 tonnes in temperatures between -55°C and +45°C.

    It has a maximum rating of 9·6 MW and continuous rating of 8·8 MW, and can operate under 25 kV 50 Hz or 3 kV DC electrification. A 500 kW last-mile diesel engine could also be fitted, installed in an isolated compartment in each locomotive section.

    The locomotive is equipped with Bombardier’s Mitrac control system, Flexx Power 140 RU bogies for axleloads up to 25 tonnes, asynchronous traction motors and Knorr-Bremse braking systems.

    The air-conditioned cab meets the latest Russian comfort standards, with two fixed and one folding seats, a fridge and a microwave. The side windows can be used as an emergency fire escape using a rope ladder.


    Speaking at the factory inauguration ceremony, Chairman of First Locomotive Co Stanislav Gamzalov said an initial order for the locomotives has been agreed, subject to the prototype successfully obtaining certification for operation. There has been interest from potential customers in the CIS and Baltic states, he added.

    Vnesheconombank Chairman Vladimir Dmitriev said it would be an attractive product for export markets, and noted that Azerbaijan Railways representatives attended the inauguration ceremony.

    Governor of Saratov oblast Valery Radaev said the Russian economy currently faces difficult conditions, and the new factory would support growth through innovation and the conservation of resources. His advisor on economics affairs, Konstantin Murenin, said the opening of the new plant was ‘an event of national scale’, which would support the development of a regional transport engineering cluster and associated supply chain and serve as a ‘shining example’ of how to undertake large scale investment projects.

    Having atomic energy company dealing with renewable sources may seem contradictory but it makes​ perfect sense.

    Wind and sunshine may be clean but are not exactly super consistent. Cloudy day (to say nothing of night) or lack of wind can cause problems and you need solid backup that can kick in and pick up massive load in split second.

    And nuclear is definitely cleanest and most reliable source available.

    Rostec takes part in creation of waste treatment plants
    In the Moscow region until the end of 2022 will be built four companies
    Until the end of 2022 on the territory of Moscow region it is planned to build four facilities for thermal waste to energy, one needs to appear in Kazan. The plants will be built in the framework of the national priority project "Pure country." "RT-invest" is engaged in realization of this project in partnership with the Japanese-Swiss company Hitachi Zosen Inova.

    "We really spent a lot of time to convince our partners to provide localization in Russia for the production and creation of new technologies. And we have achieved that. Now we can provide the localization level of over 55%," – said General Director of "RT-invest" Andrey Shipilov.

    Also Hitachi Zosen Inova must be an investor in companies AGK-1 (Moscow region) and AGK-2 (Republic of Tatarstan) with a share not less than 8% and invests their own money in construction businesses. "We aim through this project to create the production in Russia, which would become a global, competitive world. That is, the equipment which will be manufactured in Russia should be sold on the export market through contracts and channels of Hitachi Zosen Inova", – said Andrey Shipilov. According to him, by 2025, there is a steady demand for 526 factories around the world. "We want to take there share of the market of supplies of equipment. Hope it will be up to 10%", – he explained.

    The CEO also noted that will large-scale projects to sort and separate waste collection. Without the help of the population it is difficult to do, so it is important from an early age to develop a culture of waste and to encourage people to separate waste collection. "Through this project, Russia will save 500 hectares of land, not allowing the creation of a "dirty" landfill", – he explained.

    Each plant in the suburbs will be able to process up to 700 tons of municipal solid waste (MSW), resulting in 70 MW of electricity. The capacity of the plant in Kazan will reach 550 thousand tons of MSW, and the generation of 55 MW of electrical energy. Capex 149,7 billion rubles, of which 20% is equity financing and 80% Bank loans.

    The result of the project, the level of waste disposal in Kazan it is planned to reduce to zero. This practice exists in Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, Holland and Japan, where the volume of landfill waste is about 1%. In the suburbs the amount of waste disposal decreased by 30%.

    In 2019, under Federal law, across the country to earn system of waste management, in which regional operator will be obliged to carry out their separate collection, to make the initial sorting of waste with the allocation of raw materials, recyclable, and to equip all garbage trucks with systems of control of movement GLONASS and weight control for guaranteed delivery of the entire remaining amount of MSW to processing facilities.

    Vice President Hitachi Zosen Inova Andres Kronenberg said that due to the very high temperature incineration (1,200 ° C) formed after this process the slag completely safe. Moreover, the metals from the slag are sampled and re-used, or one type of emissions are not exceeded norms of EU law. This means that the next can live or farm.

    "In addition, our partner "RT-invest" has offered to monitor all emissions 24 hours and transmit data to the management of the plant, but also in environmental organizations in real-time. Instrumentation will be mounted directly on the flue/chimney," said Andres Kronenberg.

    He added that HZI provides only the technology, but not the equipment, that is, all designs, including one of the key elements of the plant – pot, will be produced in Russia. Such boilers of Russian production HZI supplied and informed on their plants, for example in Germany.

    Investment Director of "RT-invest" Anastasia Verezubova noted that the project does not involve government funding and the burden on the population. Investments will be recovered by selling power on the wholesale market of electricity and power large industrial consumers. Such a mechanism applies to other types of renewable energy sources – wind, sun, water. Tariff for reception of waste will not grow and does not involve subsidies from the regional budget. The payback period from the moment of commissioning will be 15 years.

    According to Anastasia Verezubova, 70% of the revenue of the plant will be "green tariff" – a tariff to the wholesale market for the supply of power 12% sales of electricity, 16% – acceptance of MSW. Tariff for reception of waste plants in 2022 will be at the level of 1,700 rubles per ton, which is comparable to the size, which now operates on some landfills in the Moscow region.

    The project is part of an integrated system of municipal solid waste management along with introduction of separate collection and the development of processing facilities. Its implementation will allow to reduce the volume of disposal of municipal solid wastes by 30% in the Moscow region, where annually sent to landfills 20% of all Russian waste - about 10 million tonnes annually.

    In addition, "RT-invest" presented the project "Energy from waste", aimed at construction in the Moscow region and Kazan objects in the thermal processing of waste into energy. The company announced the creation of the official website (w2e.ru) and the channel in the Telegram (@waste2energy), where developers, engineers and analysts will answer questions about the progress of the project.


    So they are going to build with localization of equipment of 55% and over, for production of waste management.  On top of this, they are aiming to make it profitable by selling the energy generated from the waste being processed/burned on the spot market to be competitive.  No government money involved in this project, and entirely based upon investments.

    This is good as it will not only help reduce waste significantly, but it will also generate electricity or heat for sale.  This is something that is a growing popularity in countries like India.

    "Yandex" has launched a data center in the Vladimir region

    The company "Yandex" has launched its own data center in the village of Energetik, Vladimir region, the total volume of capital costs within the framework of the investment project at the moment amounted to 2.5 billion rubles.

    As told TASS in "Yandex", this is the first processing center and data storage (data centers) in Russia, which is not possible additional cooling outside air. "According to our data, the new data center of "Yandex" is the most effective in Russia in terms of Power Usage Effectiveness. For already completed module it is equal to 1.07. To achieve this, allowed no need to waste energy on cooling," the company explained.

    Engineers of "Yandex", developed the concept of the data center previously participated in the construction from scratch of the Finnish data centre company. Now launched the first phase of the data center, there will be four. The design capacity of each queue is 10 MW. The company will use the data center for their own needs.

    "Yandex" has started to build a data center in the Vladimir region less than two years ago. Vladimir is one of Russia's largest substations of JSC "FGC UES", which will provide electricity to the data center.

    According to the Director of the Department of construction and exploitation of "Yandex" Andrey Korolenko, the company managed to significantly reduce the time of preparation of the project construction, the construction itself and commissioning due to the support of the Vladimir region. "In addition, given the volume of investments of "Yandex" in the Vladimir region we are in compliance with the regional legislation can rely on tax incentives that will allow us to make new data center even more efficient," he added. According to the company, estimated tax payments "Yandex" in the regional and local budgets for 2017 reached 40 million rubles.

    Some really good pictures of it here:

    Pretty significant projects...

    India and Russia set to open a vast new transport network
    7,200 km of rail, road and sea routes between the BRICS powers will open next month

    The first consignment of goods to be transported via the International North-South Transportation Corridor (INSTC) will depart from India’s financial capital Mumbai to St Petersburg, Russia next month. This will mark another milestone in India-Russia relations.

    The corridor will reduce the time for transportation of cargo from India to Russia by half. It will help India and Russia to increase bilateral trade to the targeted $30 billion over the next 10 years.....

    Russian railways bypasses Ukraine, increasing Kiev’s isolation
    Russia is also hard at work on building North Stream 2, cutting off Ukraine’s gas transit revenues

    Starting on December 11 all Russian Railways (RZD) passenger trains will bypass Ukraine on their way to western destinations, Tass reported on December 7 citing the RZD head for passenger transportation Dmitri Pegov.

    One of the main routes to be affected will be the Berlin-Moscow train, which has long been the main route used by western visitors on their way to Russia by train.

    The RZD delivered on the promise to bypass Ukraine by the end of 2017, as a part of larger Kremlin strategy of a series of infrastructure projects that will cut Ukraine out of Russia’s connections to its main customers in Europe....

    The launch of two nuclear reactors in two different Russian regions in one week!
    First criticality procedures begin at the Unit 1 of Leningrad NPP-2, a Generation III+ plant
    Launch procedures began at the newest Unit 1 of Leningrad NPP-2. At 10:33 on December 8, 2017, Leningrad NPP operating personnel successfully loaded the first of the 163 fuel assemblies with fresh nuclear fuel, giving start to the first criticality program.
