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: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
