American Electric Technologies Inc., a leading provider of power delivery solutions for the global energy industry, has announced that its M&I Electric business has recently shipped power delivery solutions for two LNG projects in Texas, US.
M&I Electric recently shipped a custom-engineered power distribution center (PDC) for the power generation, distribution, and control of a new 100 000 gal./d natural gas liquefaction and distribution facility located in the heart of the Eagle Ford Shale. The PDC contained low voltage and medium voltage switchgear, motor control center, uninterruptible power supply equipment and a variable frequency drive. The micro-LNG plant will produce LNG from Eagle Ford Shale feedstock as a substitute for diesel to be used in high-horsepower fuel applications including drilling, pressure pumping, power generation, trucking, rail, mining and other industrial applications.
M&I Electric also recently shipped medium voltage switchgear to one of the largest producers and distributors of LNG in North America for their first liquefaction train at a new LNG facility located south of Dallas, Texas. The first train is to have initial production capacity of 30 million gal. of LNG per year and the plant will serve transportation and industrial end-users in Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana who are interested in converting to a lower cost, cleaner burning alternative to diesel or propane fuel.
"We are very pleased to have been selected to provide power delivery systems to enable these new LNG projects," commented Charles Dauber, President and CEO, AETI. "These projects exemplify our mission of Empowering EnergyTM and our growing success in the LNG segment of the global energy industry. We look forward to partnering with these and other LNG producers to provide future successful projects in the LNG and other downstream oil & gas applications."
