Siemens Energy has received orders for the compressor trains for three LNG (liquefied natural gas) plants in China for liquefying synthetic natural gas.
This is the fifth follow-up order for Siemens from Hangzhou Zhongtai Cryogenic Technology Corp. The Houma Tongsheng Yitong Natural Gas Company will operate one of the plants. These plants have a capacity of 0.5 million m3/d of gas. The machines will be handed over to the customer in June 2014, after a delivery period of 12 months.
The compressor trains in the three plants each consists of a six-stage vertically-split compressor (barrel-type compressor) and a Siemens constant speed electric motor. The Siemens compressor trains compress the mixed refrigerant that cools the natural gas. The compressor trains will be entirely fabricated, assembled and packaged with the drives in Huludao, China. This enables Siemens to provide nearly the complete value-added for small LNG compressors based on international standards from China.
