Boardwalk Extending Power To Hall Summit Project

Posted on May 11, 2011

Boardwalk Pipeline Partners has selected the Cat G16CM34 to power an extension of the Hall Summit Project located 48.3 km south of Shreveport, Louisiana, U.S.A.

The G16CM34 is a V-16, four-stroke natural gas petroleum engine with a 6100 bkW at 750 r/min power rating. The engine will be used to add horsepower and serve as a backup for compression at the site. The G16CM34 will be delivered to Enerflex, which will use its block-mounted design and package the gas compression engine for Boardwalk.

The G16CM34 is a spark-ignited, turbocharged and after-cooled engine providing low emissions, high efficiency, constant torque and variable speed, the company said. The engine achieves high efficiency and low emissions by using solenoid-operated admission valves, enriched pre-chamber design and Caterpillar ADEM A3 control technology.

Boardwalk will also receive product support and service from the Cat Dealer network. Cat Dealer Louisiana Machinery was involved in the sale and will provide maintenance and support at the site in Louisiana.
