Siemens to Supply Pipestone Equipment

German engineering group Siemens is to deliver rotating equipment for the Pipestone Processing Facility in Canada.

The equipment will include a Siemens SGT-750 gas turbine driving two Dresser-Rand DATUM compressors, a Siemens waste heat recovery unit for process heat. A second train will be electric motor-driven and feature refrigeration compression with Siemens variable frequency drive.

“We’re providing all of the equipment for these two compression trains from one source, which lends testament to Encana’s ongoing confidence in our equipment and Siemens’ capability to offer a one-stop solution to our customers,” said Matthew Chinn, executive vice president new equipment solutions for Siemens. Siemens' SGT-750 gas turbine is the only twin-shaft engine in its power class with industry-leading fuel efficiency and one of the lowest emission profiles, he said.

The units will be transported to the site in Grand Prairie, Alberta, as part of a expansion work to increase capacity to 200 million cubic feet per day by 2021.
