Siemens projects De Warnes and Del Sur – Launch of Installation

Del Sur Eight Exhaust Systems SGT 800 were delivered in time to the both sites Del Sur and De Warnes in time, Roland Nesler the Project Manager said. The 56 sea freight containers were shipped from Cat Lay Port in Vietnam to Arica in Chile. From here the Exhaust Systems were transported on trucks to the both site location.

The assembly & installation on both sites started middle of December 2017. We have a very good progress with the assembly & installation thus we can convert the first gas turbine unit to the new Exhaust System in the second half of February followed with the conversion of the other units every 14 days, Jack Kelly the COMPACT Global site manager said.

Ansaldo Energia V94.2 Exhaust System ready to ship

Vung Tau We are very proud about the new Gas Turbine Diffuser, Yura Forti the COMPACT Global QS Manager said. The new acoustic design will attenuate the low frequencies the both combustion chambers of the Gas Turbine generate. A complex vibro-acoustic study were run and a technology developed which significantly reduce heat radiation and body borne sound. Our ambition is to deliver E, F and H-Class Gas Turbine Diffusers not demanding any acoustic enclosure anymore, Werner Raimund the Head of Design of COMPACT Global said. Of course this new technology for which we apply for a patent currently provides a huge benefit to our customers, because the customer’s savings on acoustic enclosures goes into millions of USD over a business year.

COMPACT Global goes South America

Chile It is time for Localization - the strategy of COMPACT Global is to team up with their sales partners and take the business closer to the customers. We want to become a local supplier in a number of selected countries in the South America, Juan José Prera the International Sales Manager of COMPACT Global said. South America is an important market for us, because the energy demand is growing in the countries of the south cone, specifically in Argentina where  the government awarded 2,900MW last year in thermal generation contracts and in recent months has also tendered for at least 1,000MW of renewable energy supply, in a bid to start expanding and renewing generating capacity. 

The general manager of Andina Turbomecánica Mr. Nicolas Pic signed the Strategy Contract with COMPACT Global in order to cover the After Market sales as well as new power plant projects that will require Exhaust Systems for Simple and Combined Cycle Power Plants. Andina Turbomécanica will attend Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Bolivia and Peru.

GE903 Exhaust System Factory Acceptance Test by Volta River Authority

Vung Tau Takoradi Power Station in operation since 18 years order a new Exhaust Gas System for unit 1 of its General Electric Frame 9E gas turbine. Fredrik Bok of Afriqventure, the consultant of Volta River Authority reported about none acceptable heat radiation of the entire Braden made Exhaust System with tremendous Diverter leakages. It is a turn-key delivery. We replace the old unit within 42 days counted from the arrival of the 17 sea-freight containers to site, Jack Kelly COMPACT Global’s site manager said. The Method Statements and Risk Assessment prepared incorporating each and every single work step. A strategically perfect planning Stephen Owusu of VRA said.

On the workshop floor in Vietnam all operations of the Diverter were successfully simulated and controlled by the Local Control System. The new Diverter power train in combination with GRAVIMOV® and COMPACTdrive performed in both operation speeds. COMPACTdrive is a hydraulic actuator development demanding only 4 kW electrical power to operate this huge Diverter. The challenge of this project was to combine all i&O signals of the old DCS with all operation information the Local Control Panel nowadays provide for the operator, said Daniel Rohrer the COMPACT Global project manager on this project.

Siemens projects De Warnes and Del Sur – Launch of Production

Vung Tau Siemens IPPS in Vienna ordered eight Exhaust Systems SGT 800 for the both projects in July 2016. All units together having a shipping weight of 800 tons PACK & GO™ in 56 sea-freight containers, Martin Lortie the VP of COMPACT Global’s fabrication partner Metacor said.

GRAVIMOV® assists the electric actuator thus only 25000 Nm for the counter weight balanced Diverter Flap are necessary. NEVEXseal® the Diverter life-time lasting seal system makes the Exhaust Gas System maintenance free. All new technologies are incorporated in the Exhaust Gas Systems. The documentation were prepared in the fore-field of fabrication, among those the Assembly & Installation Instruction, said Roland Nesler COMPACT Globals’s project manager on this project. The assembly and installation will be under our supervision. The journey for the units from Vietnam across the Bolivian Aden will take about 2 months whereas the assembly and installation is planned with 3 weeks.

The Factory Acceptance Test will be with complete assemble Diverter and INCONTROL. All joining parts will be test assembled on the workshop floor. This insurers the three weeks assembly and installation time. The shut down for the conversion of the existing Gas Turbines is planned with 7 days only. The shortest period ever focused for such a work, Peter Prochazka the Managing Director of COMPACT Global said.

Diverter for Lukoil Usinsk and Yarega CCPP

Moscow In the vastness of Russia distances do not count. The Republic of Komi, 1650 km North East of Moscow, the places Usinsk and Yarega, are the destinations of the seven Diverters for two power stations Lukoil build for the development of fields on the Russia’s Arctic continental shelf. Over ice roads the equipment was transported to the terrain where winter temperatures can reach - 40 °C and below.

This project is a major step into the Russian market, said Pavel Stefanishin who operates COMPACT Global’s hub in Moscow. The contract for this projects was signed with ZIO in Podolsk, one of the major HRSG supplier in Russia. The Diverters are equipped with GRAVIMOV® the new Diverter powertrain and NEVEXseal® the touch free seal seat. The Diverters and all auxiliaries were shipped PACK & GO™. The customer’s site team assembled the equipment using our 3-D assembly manuals. The instructions are so clear and easy to understand that an additional site support is not necessary anymore.
