GE Oil & Gas has been awarded a contract of more than $120 million (€90 million) to overhaul nine gas turbines located at four compression stations along the Trans Europa Naturgas Pipeline (TENP), which runs across Germany from the Dutch to the Swiss border.
GE Oil & Gas will convert the nine GE MS3002 gas turbines, including three new units and six fully over-hauled units, to dry low NOx (DLN) technology, which will lower NOx and CO2 emissions to meet the stringent future German legal requirements.
Andrew Way, vice president - Global Services, GE Oil & Gas said, “GE is committed to helping customers boost performance and efficiency on a sustainable basis. We will complete this important Trans Europa Naturgas Pipeline upgrade project by maintaining the existing footprint of the units and with minimal impact to the balance of plant operations. In addition, we will ensure optimum fuel performance for the refurbished gas turbines.”
In addition to converting the nine units to DLN operation, the scope of GE’s contract includes replacement of the gas turbine skids and auxiliaries, replacing and installing heat recuperators, installing new control logic functions into the existing controls systems, site installation activities, and a full-string test for the first upgraded unit. All of the upgraded units will be shipped to the project sites and will enter service over the next four years.
