Gazprom commences construction of Russia’s largest specialized foundry complex

Today, the construction of the specialized foundry complex which will be the largest facility of this kind in Russia started in the Uzlovaya special economic zone in the Tula Region.

Taking part in the event were Alexey Miller, Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, and Alexey Dyumin, Governor of the Tula Region.

The enterprise will develop the production of turbine blades for industrial, power-generating and marine gas turbines. Such turbines are widely used by Gazprom, for instance, at natural gas production and transmission and hydrocarbon feedstock processing facilities, as well as at facilities that produce power and heat for the consumers.

The blades are the key component of gas turbines which is also the hardest to manufacture. During operation, it is the blades that are most heavily affected by dynamic loads and ultra-high temperatures. That is why they have limited lifetime and require regular replacement.

Gazprom's specialized foundry complex will became one of the most cutting-edge and high-tech enterprises in Russia. A full range of foundry operations will be performed here: preparation of materials, fabrication of casting molds, manufacture of specialized steel, mechanical processing of the blade components, testing and laboratory quality control of the final products.

Cutting-edge foundry technologies will be employed at the enterprise. This will make it possible to manufacture blades that perform reliably during their long service life and last a long time between replacements.

It is planned to complete the construction of the foundry complex in 2025. The first batch of products is expected to be produced in 2026.
“Today, we are celebrating a milestone event in the power machinery industry of our country. Today, Gazprom is commencing the active phase of the construction of the specialized foundry complex where we will produce key gas turbine components that are very hard-to-manufacture.

It will be a very high-tech production providing a full range of foundry works for the manufacture of the blades, a high-quality and highly research-intensive production. The enterprise will be fully supplied with orders, and will employ more than 500 people.

The new production is a very important step toward strengthening our domestic competencies and reinforcing the technological sovereignty of our country,” said Alexey Miller.


Gazprom, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation and the Government of the Tula Region signed an Agreement of Intent on June 16, 2023, at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. The parties agreed to collaborate on the project to be implemented by Gazprom for the construction of Russia's largest specialized foundry complex to produce turbine blades in the Uzlovaya special economic zone in the Tula Region. Gazprom Energoholding Liteynye Tekhnologii (Gazprom Energoholding Foundry Technologies), a company of the Gazprom Energoholding Group, will be the operator of the complex.

Gazprom Energoholding, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gazprom, manages the companies of the Gazprom Group in the power generation sector and power machinery industry.
