The signing ceremony took place in the presence of Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee.
In accordance with the document, TER-Servis will carry out a set of current maintenance (minor inspections), medium repair (hot gas path inspections) and overhaul (major inspections) works and services.

Gazprom Energoholding, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gazprom, manages the core companies of the Gazprom Group in the power generation sector (OGK-2, Mosenergo, TGC-1, and MOEK).
The main equipment of the Grozny TPP (operated by OGK-2) includes two power units with a total installed power capacity of some 360 MW based on gas turbines and generators manufactured by Siemens. The first power unit was brought into operation in December 2018. Pre-commissioning is nearing completion at the second power unit.
TER-Servis (part of the Gazprom Energoholding Group) was established in 2014 with the purpose of replacing foreign contractors with domestic companies on a continuous basis. In cooperation with Russian companies, TER-Servis is implementing a range of projects aimed at mastering expertise in servicing and manufacturing individual hot-end components of gas turbines at Russian facilities.
