Siemens gas turbine plant to be built in YIT’s industrial park close to St. Petersburg
YIT’s Russian subsidiary YIT St. Petersburg and OOO Siemens Gas Turbine Technologies (SGTT) have signed an agreement under which YIT will sell a plot in the Greenstate industrial park, south of St. Petersburg, to SGTT. Conclusion of the agreement took place and became valid at the end of the year 2012. On its 3.8-hectare plot, SGTT will build a world-class complex for gas turbines manufacturing and service, first of all high-efficiency 166 MW and 292 MW gas turbines. The planned area of the plant is approximately 25,000 square metres. The plant will be completed by the end of 2014. OOO Siemens Gas Turbine Technologies will employ up to 500 people.
YIT’s Greenstate industrial park is a zoned 112-hectare industrial area in the vicinity of the St. Petersburg ring road and Tallinn motorway, south of the city. The industrial park features fully completed infrastructure and energy, electricity, water and IT networks for use by production plants and logistics centres. On the Greenstate a company can develop premises to be recognised in its own balance sheet or lease them from the final owner of the premises. The lessors comply with Western agreement practices.
“Siemens conducted an extensive survey of the industrial park’s conditions and decided to implement the plant investment in our industrial park based on it. Greenstate offers high-quality and competitive conditions for modern production activity with an excellent location. The Siemens group is a very significant collaborative partner for us,” says Mikhail Voziyanov, General Director of YIT St. Petersburg.
“The construction of the new plant is an important step for our company. We are responding to Russian government’s aims to modernise the country’s energy industry by offering our customers in Russia and the CIS modern products for the energy industry,” says Ralf Schneider, CEO of Siemens Gas Turbine Technologies LLC.
