Monday, 26 January 2009
Rolls-Royce today announced that the company has been awarded an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ), multi-year contract by the U.S. Air Force. The contract supports ongoing development activity with the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) program, Versatile Affordable Advanced Turbine Engines (VAATE) Phase II/III.

(iii) Energy : Rolls-Royce to power Indian pipeline extension in $130 million gas turbine contract
Monday, 19 January 2009
Rolls-Royce engines will power an extension to one of India’s major gas pipelines in a deal with Gas Authority India Limited (GAIL) valued at more than $130 million. Six RB211-GT61 gas turbine compression packages will be supplied to increase the flow of gas to 56 million cubic meters per day as part of an integrated national gas grid GAIL is creating to support economic growth across India.
Three gas compression sets will be installed at each of the Vijaipur and Jhabua, with each one maintaining pipeline hydraulics by compensating for the loss of gas pressure that occurs along a pipeline.
J'espère que l'Illustration est parlante !........Rolls-Royce now has more than 100 gas turbine and compressor installations in India and this new contract increases the number of RB211 compression units operating on the GAIL network to 14. The Group also provides power for the Oil and Natural Gas Commission of India in the Bombay High gas field with 36 gas turbine and compressor units.
Rolls-Royce will manufacture the industrial RB211s at its Montreal, Canada facility and the centrifugal gas compressors will be built at its Mount Vernon, Ohio factory in the US.
Assembly of the complete gas turbine packages will also take place at Mount Vernon. Delivery of all six units is scheduled for the first quarter of 2010.
