The state-run enterprise 'Gas Turbine Research & Production Complex
'Zorya-Mashproekt' has possibility to enter the China gas transportation market:
a contract was signed with the Harbin Boiler and Turbine Institute for supply of
the pilot engine DU-80 of 25 megawatt. The engine will be used in the pilot gas
