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 WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.
Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....
The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
