GEA Batignolles Technologies Thermiques (GEA BTT), a subsidiary of GEA Heat Exchangers, has won an order worth more than €40 million from Technip and JCG. The order was for over 400 air-cooled heat exchangers for the Yamal LNG plant.
GEA BTT will design and manufacture the heat exchangers over a period of three years, before delivering them to the LNG plant. Commissioning is planned for three phases, and is scheduled to begin in 2016.
Yamal LNG project
Yamal LNG intends to build a plant based on the South Tambey field. The heat exchangers delivered by GEA will be installed in three LNG lines, each of which will process 5.5 million tpa of gas. The plant facilities will liquefy the extracted gas, making it possible to transport LNG by ship to European and Asian markets.
Philippe Piron, CEO of GEA BTT, commented: “I am pleased that our competence in LNG production has received recognition in this manner, and that we have won the order for this outstanding project.”
