SIEMENS will provide two compressor trains for a liquefied natural gas project to be established in Etuoke Qian Qi, in the Chinese province of Inner Mongolia.
The order is the fifth received from Chengdu Cryogenic Liquidation Equipment Company, and is a follow-up to Siemens’ supply of large scale electric drive LNG compressor trains to the company’s LNG production project in Cangzhou, in China’s Hebei province.
Both projects are coke oven gas to LNG facilities, which Siemens said contributed to a green economy by reducing carbon emissions, while securing the source of fuel gas supply.
The trains being installed at the Etuoke Qian Qi facility will have an annual capacity of 400,000 tonnes of LNG and will be put into operation in December 2015.
Siemens compression business unit chief executive Lennart Nilsson said he was pleased to be working with Chengdu Cryogenic Liquidation Equipment again.
“With this order, we are helping our customer achieve their economic and ecological goals. At the same time, we are strengthening our leading position on the Chinese market, which is important to us,” he said.
Siemens inlet guide vanes (IGV) technology provides a more flexible and wide range turn down for projects adopted large scale electric drive, the company said.
At the meantime, it also compensated for the power loss and the impact to the grid of the conventional for converter solutions.
Siemens also provides the solution of recycling primary seal gas leakage back to the compressor suction, which brings significant benefits to LNG operators to reduce its operation cost and increase production efficiency.
