DONGYING, China, Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Recently, Kerui Petroleum Equipment Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "Kerui") signed a contract with a company from Southeast Asia. In accordance with the provisions of the contract, Kerui will provide a set of large GT-driven (gas turbine driven) screw compressor units to the company, which will be used in its LPG project. With the designed capacity of 1,580.8 kW, this set of units is driven by a natural gas engine. The power of the compressor axis is 1,142.2 kW, and a speed-increasing gearbox is equipped between the compressor and the engine. The overall technology is at the leading level in the world.
In order to ensure smooth delivery of the project and to meet technical requirements of customers, Kerui has established partnership with a global well-known screw compressor manufacturer and signed a strategic partnership agreement with this company, which has a long history and rich experience in the field of screw compressors, to promote the project jointly. This partnership is significant for both parties to complement each other’s advantages and to achieve the goal of win-win.
In the project, by integrating global resources and making continuous innovations in R&D and design, and based on its solid R&D foundation and proven skid technology, Kerui has provided satisfactory system solutions to its customers. Meanwhile, Kerui guarantees the project runs properly through the established partnership, strict quality control and efficient project management.
In this project, the biggest difficulty of technology is how to drive the set of units with a natural gas engine. As far as we know, only a few domestic and foreign companies have used natural gas engines to drive screw compressors. In particular, the technical requirements are very high for large-power screw compressors. After successful delivery of the project, Kerui and its partner’s compressor skid technology will make a qualitative leap and reach the global leading level, so as to help build GT-driven screw compressors both in China and in the world.
