Rolls-Royce Expands in Asia
Rolls-Royce has strengthened its presence in the Asian energy market with three new orders from Thailand and Malaysia for industrial gas turbine equipment, valued at over US$50 million. Two of the orders are for gas transmission projects in Thailand, where 21 Rolls-Royce units are in service.
The first order is for two RB211 gas compression packages for the Arthit offshore platform in the Gulf of Thailand, operated by PTT Exploration and Production Public Company Ltd. (PTTEP). They will deliver gas to PTT’s onshore gas separation plant via a transmission pipeline. The second Thai order is for three RB211 Dry Low Emissions mechanical drive packages for an onshore compressor station at Rayong operated by PTT Public Company Ltd. At the Rayong station they will operate alongside seven previously installed Rolls-Royce Avon and RB211 gas turbine packages. The units were ordered on behalf of PTT by MAN Ferrostaal Industrieanlagen GmbH (Germany) and will drive compressor trains for onshore gas transmission and will increase pipeline capacity to help meet future growth in demand for gas in Thailand, said Rolls-Royce.
The third order is for an RB211 gas compressor package driving a Rolls-Royce centrifugal pipeline compressor at the Segamat plant of PETRONAS Gas Berhad (PGB) in western Malaysia. It will operate alongside two other RB211s installed at the Segamat station in 1997. The order also includes work to upgrade the two existing compressors and control system.
