During implementation of the project to create fully domestic gas turbines of large and medium capacity, Power Machines started manufacturing the equipment necessary for production of the inner shell of gas turbine GTE-170.
The inner shell of the gas turbine is a technically comprehensive structure made of nickel alloy, the prototype of which, as part of R&D, will be manufactured by specialists of Leningradsky Metallichesky Zavod, where production of Russian gas turbines of medium and high power is currently deployed.
At the moment, the equipment for bending parts of the inner shell has been manufactured and tested on steel samples. In Q1 of 2021, work on testing the bending equipment on nickel alloy parts will be completed.
Given the exceptional importance of the project for the Russian energy industry, the process of developing and manufacturing equipment for the inner shell of GTP-17E is monitored by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation.
