Complete failure: how did the Siemens "turbo" end in the Crimea

16
The construction of the Sevastopol and Simferopol thermal power plants is entering the final stretch. Already in the early summer of this year, four power units will be commissioned, which will mark the decline of the “era of energy deficit” in the Crimea.


The "hearts" of both TPPs are high-power turbines of the German company Siemens. Many believed that the start of the supply of these units on the peninsula "turbo", will lead to new sanctions against Russia and the departure of the German giant from the Russian market. But after losing all possible courts, Siemens did not just not leave, but signed new multi-billion contracts for the supply of turbines for thermal power plants throughout Russia.

Anyway, our country has learned a lesson from all this stories. As previously reported, Saturn United Engine Corporation is completing testing of a gas turbine unit with a capacity of 110 MW. This means that sooner or later Russia will replace the import of high-capacity gas turbines with its own domestic products.

      But the Germans did well not afraid of sanctions, business is business. good But all the same, there is something of its own, it is necessary to achieve complete import substitution in all areas of production. yes

        how will a total import substitution be achieved with a population of 140 million? I think it’s better to establish something of their own, but in such volumes that the minimum cost, and conquer the world

        Dmitry: Well, of course, Masha is Masha, but on the other hand two times it’s still two times ...

        It will not work in all, some things, not massive, are cheaper to buy than to build production. These same turbines of high power, are they often needed? I don’t think ... We’ll build a factory, and he will make a batch and will stand idle ...

          Can you attach them to ships?

              In order not to stop the plant, releasing a batch of turbines for thermal power plants. Moreover, we still have a problem with providing ships under construction with engines.

                I am not an expert, but I think that a turbine for large power plants and ship propulsion systems are different technologies ...

                  To make different sizes and capacities, but so that the technology is worked out and the production is not idle. And I, too, have never been an expert, so I’m interested in trying to figure out if they are interchangeable, whether they are suitable for ships.

    From the very beginning of this "history" it was clear that nothing would end.
    The market is narrow, the competition is fierce.
    Siemens simply showed that intelligent people work there.
    And all request

      Did Siemens have a choice?
      As a scenario, described by Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin:
      [quote] For a long time by the sea he was waiting for an answer,
      I didn’t wait, I turned back to the old woman -
      Look: again, before him is a dugout;
      On the threshold sits his old woman,
      And before her a broken trough. [/ Quote]

      it is for them a feat-overcoming the outcome of the Potsdam conference

    The history of Siemens AG is inextricably linked with Russia:
    1851 Supply of 75 switch telegraph apparatus for the Moscow-St. Petersburg line under construction.
    1853 The foundation of the Siemens bureau in St. Petersburg under the leadership of Karl Siemens. Start of construction of the Russian State Imperial Telegraph Network.
    1853-1855: Laying telegraph lines Moscow - Kiev - Odessa - Sevastopol, St. Petersburg - Kronstadt, St. Petersburg - Helsingfors - Abo, St. Petersburg - Warsaw. The total length of telegraph lines in Russia was 9000 km.
    1882 — 1883: Construction of cable and electrical plants in St. Petersburg.
    1924 — 1926: Construction of a power plant on the Kura River.
    1925 — 1936: Siemens Advisory Bureau in Moscow
    1956: The company receives an order for the design and supply of electrical equipment for the diesel-electric icebreaker "Moscow".
    1971: Opening of the Siemens AG Representative Office in Moscow.
    1975: Automation system for the world's most productive rolling mill: 2000 wideband rolling mill in Cherepovets.
    1979: Supply of equipment for the Moscow Olympics.
    1982: Complete medical equipment of the All-Union Cardiology Center in Moscow.
    1991: First joint venture with Russian partners.
    1992: Founding of Siemens.
    1996: The longest radio relay communication line in the world, Moscow - Khabarovsk
    1997: Reorganization of Siemens OJSC into Siemens LLC.
    And so on ... So our market is always open to them.

    Gentlemen, the Germans pretended that they resisted, ours fought, and there wasn’t much noise! But to us and that bell.
