Eco-friendly gas turbines unveiled at METS 2011
Siemens showcases efficient gas turbines destined for Middle East
Siemens Energy division is to pull the covers from its latest range of highly efficient industrial gas turbines as the inaugural Middle East Turbomachinery Symposium gets underway in Doha this week.
METS 2011 brings together industry leaders from the oil and gas sectors to showcase new technology and exchange new ideas, and the symposium will also allow Siemens to unveil new innovations coming to the Middle East including carbon capture and storage, enhanced oil recovery, fuel gas, instrument air, air separation and district cooling.
“METS 2011 is a fantastic opportunity to bring our newest range of environmentally conscious turbines to the region for the first time”, says Tom Blades, CEO, Siemens Oil and Gas division. “This will enable customers throughout the Middle East to add sustainable solutions to their portfolios, in order to build their green credentials”.
The seal-less compressor STC-ECO will take pride of place on the Siemens stand, in addition to the new SGT-750, a twin-shaft industrial gas turbine with an annual service time of just one day. Well-proven components from existing Siemens gas turbines are utilised to ensure reliability, and emissions are reduced by the machine’s dry low emission combustion system.
METS 2011 will be taking place from 13 to 16 February, and technology experts from Siemens will be presenting on a variety of topics, including Onsite Determination of the Control Line for Integrally Geared Compressors for Avoidance of Impeller Fatigue Failures (15 Feb, 2pm).
