TMEIC Corp. has been awarded a large motor and drive contract from Dresser Rand business, part of Siemens Power and Gas Division. The company is to supply the equipment to the CO2 recycle DATUM® turbo compressor at the Denbury Onshore LLC natural gas liquids plant in Delhi, Louisiana.
TMEIC’s large, four-pole, 20 450 HP induction motor is manufactured for variable speed operation at up to 1780 rpm, directly coupled to the compressor. It runs at 6000 V.
