Wood Group GTS has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract by MC Systems Energy of Moscow for Surgutneftegas OJSC in Western Siberia, Russia to provide overhaul services for two Siemens SGT-200-1S (Tornado) gas turbines.

Under the MC Systems Energy contract Wood Group GTS will provide all gas turbine parts, component repair and technical services to fully overhaul two 6.75 megawatt gas turbine generators fitted with Dry Low NOx (DLE) combustion systems. These machines provide local power for the Tyanskoye oil field in Western Siberia and are fueled by well head gases, reducing the need to flare gas into the atmosphere. This contract will enable oil and power production to continue whilst meeting local environmental standards.

Wood Group GTS will support the Siemens gas turbine generators from its Aberdeen facility, providing complete in-house repair, overhaul and test solutions under one roof.

Vladimir Vladimrov, managing director of MC Systems Energy commented “Wood Group GTS has worked with us over many years and has proven to be a reliable partner. We are very happy with their performance and the value of service they deliver.”

“This latest award enhances our position as a key service provider for oil & gas producers in Russia. Combining our full range of services into this overhaul contract enables Wood Group GTS to deliver a cost-effective maintenance plan, reliable power supply and compliance with local environmental legislation,” said Mark Papworth, CEO, Wood Group GTS.
