The Dresser-Rand business, part of Siemens Power and Gas, will supply three gas turbine-driven turbo compressor trains for the Wang Noi compressor station in Thailand.
Samsung Engineering is constructing the station. Owner of the station is Thailand’s state-owned oil and gas company, PTT Public Company Limited (PTT). The project is expected to be completed in 2018.
The compressor station will be located 70 kilometers from Bangkok. It will enhance the capacity of the Ratchaburi – Wang Noi pipeline to meet the increasing natural gas demands of power plants next to the pipeline. Within the compressor station, three SGT-400 industrial gas turbines will each drive a Siemens barrel-type STC-SV compressor.
