The customer is a joint venture between Petrofac and GS E&C on behalf of Abu Dhabi Gas Industries Ltd. (GASCO), responsible for the fractionation of natural and associated gas from onshore oil operations in the emirate of Abu Dhabi. Siemens will be the main electrical contractor for GASCO’s Ruwais 4th NGL train, located in the city of Ruwais, UAE. The train is scheduled to go into operation in March 2012.
As main electrical contractor (MEC) for the NGL fractionation plant, Siemens will provide power- and distribution transformers, high-, medium- and low-voltage switchgears, and motor control centers. The company’s scope of supply will also encompass a power management system, medium- and low-voltage motors, and various other items of equipment. The order also includes engineering, installation, commissioning and supervision of the complete electrical equipment. Benefits of the ‘one-stop’ MEC approach are the reduction of interfaces, project management simplification, better communication, risk reduction and the leveraging of core competencies. Beyond this, the use of Siemens Oil and Gas standard and modularized solutions is expected to reduce lead, installation and commissioning times resulting in a more robust plant with improved overall operability and better economics.
“This order is a breakthrough for our integrated solution capabilities and a door-opener for further projects as it demonstrates our ability to engineer and deliver the entire power solution scope from a single source,” said Tom Blades, CEO of the Oil and Gas Division of Siemens Energy. “More and more we see customers turning to Siemens early on in projects to find innovative ways to reduce risk and costs while accelerating completion.” Siemens had already been successfully involved in the previous NGL trains at the Ruwais plant in providing smaller packages and components.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
