Swiss Sulzer and Russian "Renova" opened a joint production in Russia. This time it will be to modernize the production of heavy pumps. Start-up businesses will increase the efficiency of power by 10-12%.
The company on modernization of industrial pumping systems technology Sulzer appears in the Technology Center of Global Ege (engaged in supplying equipment for woodworking). As told RBC daily, director of development of high-tech assets "Renova" Michael Lifshets, production in Khimki will open at the end of the first quarter of 2011. Start-up businesses will increase their efficiency by 10-12%. Start-up businesses in Khimki will reduce wear and tear and energy consumption of the pumps.
At the end of last year, "Renova" and Sulzer (structures Viktor Vekselberg owns a 30% stake in the Swiss company) opened in the Moscow region (Serpukhov) production of oil and gas equipment full cycle. President and CEO Ton Büchner Sulzer AG said then that the company is working hard to meet the needs that exist in Russia in high technology. Now, companies are opening in Khimki on modernization of industrial production pumping systems technology Sulzer.
The Swiss have had the experience of working with Russian energy companies. A few years ago, Sulzer upgraded pumping system "Mosenergo". However, the work was carried out at the site of the company in Germany.

"Up to 30% of the energy in Russia is spent on the work of pumping equipment. Driving fuel pipes, water and heating, work turbines in power plants — all this consumes a lot of energy. If you increase the efficiency of the pumps on one power capacity of 250 MW by 10-12%, this will help to save up to 2 MW of electricity, but if upgrade equipment company "Transneft", then we can not build additional power capacity of 300 MW, "- said Mr. Mr. Lifshets.
