GE To Upgrade German Compression Stations

Posted on January 31, 2011

GE Oil & Gas has received 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 overhauled units, to dry low NOx (DLN) technology, which will lower NOx and CO2 emissions to meet future German legal requirements.

In addition to the conversion services, the contract also 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, according to GE.
