Nidec ASI, part of Nidec Group, has signed a multi-million-euro contract with Siemens Gas and Power for the supply of equipment for the Arctic LNG 2 project.

Nidec said on Friday that it would supply variable frequency drives systems (VFDS) and motors for the Arctic LNG 2 project which will be used as part of the LNG liquefaction plants located in the Yamal peninsula in Arctic Russia.

The motors supplied by Nidec ASI make it possible to work continuously even at temperatures down to -52°C, thus meeting the special requirements needed to operate in the Arctic Circle.

Nidec was also selected to provide four feed gas booster compressors, three 37MW current source VFDS and three synchronous motors, three 20MW voltage source PWM VFDS for starting six medium-voltage fixed-speed induction motors.

The Novatek-operated Arctic LNG 2 project, with a total value of $25.5 billion, involves the construction of three plants for LNG via gravity-based structure platforms with a capacity of approximately 6.6 million tons per year each.

The liquefaction trains, installed on platforms in the waters of the Gulf of Ob, also include LNG storage facilities for a total of 687,000 cubic meters.
