Siemens selected as main electrical contractor for natural gas liquids fractionation plant

20.07.2010
Siemens Energy has been awarded a USD40 million project in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to engineer and supply an integrated power solution for a natural gas liquids (NGL) fractionation plant.

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.

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
