At the Gastech Conference and Exhibition 2015 held Oct. 27-30 in Singapore, Dresser-Rand displayed how its combined solutions with Siemens offers clients what it says are the oil and gas industry’s most extensive portfolio of rotating equipment, including the launch of the new RB211-GT30 gas turbine.
Oil and gas exploration is much about its transportation, and compressors play a central role in the pertinent processes. This overview of the diverse technology driving the industry cites the example of German MAN Diesel & Turbo’s broad turbomachinery product range.
Siemens is building a new production plant for 60-Hertz gas turbines at its existing facility in Charlotte, North Carolina. The initial investment will be approximately $135 million. Production is slated to start in the fall of 2011.
MSI was asked by an end-user to help troubleshoot a newly commissioned critical compressor train that had begun to undergo unexplained vibration trips. These sudden vibration trips threatened to result in a substantial revenue loss for the end user.
