Alfa Laval has
received an order for compact heat exchangers from a refinery in Russia. The order value
is about SEK 70 million and delivery is scheduled for 2012. The
heat exchangers will be used in various steps of the refinery process where crude oil is
refined to high-quality products, such as gasoline. By using
Alfa Lavals compact heat exchangers it is possible to
reuse heat from one part of the process for preheating another,
resulting in a highly energy-efficient solution.
Abu Dhabi National Energy
Co. PJSC (TAQA) has awarded MAN Diesel &
Turbo Schweiz AG a multimillion-euro contract for
delivery of compression technology for the Bergermeer Gas
Storage project in Alkmaar, the Netherlands.
The scope of delivery comprises six fully integrated,
skid-mounted high-frequency motor-compressor systems, providing
emission-free and highly efficient operation. Each 13-MW
motor-compressor unit, with a weight of more than 80 metric
tons, consists of a tandem compressor arrangement, generating a
flow of 540,000 m3/hr of gas.
The Bergermeer Gas Storage project will reportedly create
Europes largest open-access gas storage facility. It will
provide the Northwest European gas market with 4.1 billion
m3 of seasonal storage, thereby almost doubling the
Netherlands total storage capacity.
TAQA received the final statutory
approvals and permits to construct and operate the facility in
May 2011. Bergermeer Gas Storage operations will start in 2013
with full commercial operations in 2014.
