The Dresser-Rand business, part of Siemens Power and Gas Division, has received orders to supply five gas turbine-driven compressor trains for two pipelines in Mexico.
The customer is the Mexican project developer Fermaca Enterprises (Fermaca)
The compressor trains each consist of an STC-SV single-shaft compressor driven by a Siemens SGT-400 gas turbine. Two of the trains will be installed at a pipeline station in La Laguna, Coahuila, and the other three units will be part of a pipeline compressor station in Villa de Reyes, San Luis Potosi, Mexico.
Christopher Rossi, CEO of the Dresser-Rand business, said "we are pleased to be selected as the compression solution supplier for this strategically important pipeline project in a highly competitive market. The successful execution of the El Encino project laid the groundwork for a trusting relationship with Fermaca and was an important factor in our receiving this follow-up order. We appreciate Fermaca's and the Mexican government's confidence in us to provide proven, leading-edge technologies that will enable the safe and efficient operation, maintainability, and reliability of these key assets."
