Siemens has sold more than a dozen SGT-400 turbines to customers in Mexico over the last three years and more than 60 worldwide. Both the 13.4- and 15-MW versions of the SGT-400 high-efficiency gas turbines offer excellent emissions performance in a rugged industrial design. This makes it an ideal choice for a wide variety of applications, from simple- and combined-cycle power plants, to cogeneration, to power generation and mechanical drive applications for onshore and offshore projects in oil and gas.
Project teams for Fermaca and Siemens worked closely together to determine the optimum train solution that resulted in a competitive CAPEX and OPEX offering, paired with short cycle times. In addition, Siemens designed identical packages for both sites, including all auxiliaries systems to maximize common parts and streamline operations and maintenance teams. The only difference between the two projects is the gas turbine core engine and compressor bundles due to different power demands and operational conditions of each site.
"We are pleased to be selected as the only equipment provider for this important pipeline project," said Eric Carlos, Head of Sales for Latin America at the Dresser-Rand business. "Our ability to deliver a proven product with the lowest total life cycle cost, on time and on budget, demonstrates Fermaca's confidence in us to provide leading-edge technologies that enable the safe, efficient operation of their compressor trains."
"Because of our previous work with Siemens, we were able to review past projects and incorporate lessons learned and best practices into this most recent project," said Dr. Raul Monteforte, Chief Development Officer of Fermaca. "The close proximity of Siemens facilities and their impressive performance with past projects and equipment makes it easy to manage expectations for this pipeline extension," Monteforte added.
