Siemens Energy said it has received an order from Chengdu Cryogenic Liquidation Equipment to provide two compressor trains for an LNG project in Etuoke Qian Qi of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region with an annual capacity of 400,000 tons of LNG.
This marks the fifth order for Siemens from Chengdu Cryogenic. The project is planned to be put into operation in December 2015. The signing ceremony was held at the Siemens LNG Compressor Technology Forum 2014 in Huludao, Liaoning Province on September 16th, Siemens said in a statement.
It’s a follow-up cooperation with Chengdu Cryogenic Liquidation Equipment after the LNG project in August this year in Cangzhou, Hebei Province. The Cangzhou project has been the largest single-unit LNG production project by coke oven gas, which Siemens supplied large scale electric drive LNG compressor trains.
Siemens inlet guide vanes (IGV) technology provides a more flexible and wide range turn down for projects adopted large scale electric drive. At the meantime, it compensates the power loss and the impact to the grid of the conventional 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.
LNG production by coke oven gas represents a future trend for investment as it contributes to green economy by reusing coke oven gas to produce LNG and thus reducing carbon emission, while securing the source of fuel gas supply.
