Middle East Turbomachinery Symposium (METS) 2011, the Middle East version of a successful event held in Texas, USA, since 1971, will bring together industry leaders across the oil and gas sector to showcase new turbomachinary technology, exchange ideas and discuss ongoing industry related issues.
Siemens will be displaying its recent innovations in rotating equipment, as well as solutions for emerging markets such as Carbon Capture and Storage, Enhanced Oil Recovery, Fuel Gas, Instrument Air, Air Separation and District Cooling.
As Tom Blades, CEO, Siemens Oil & Gas Division, explains; “METS 2011 presents us with a fantastic opportunity to bring Siemens’ newest range of environmentally conscious turbines to the region for the first time, enabling customers throughout the Middle East to add sustainable solutions to their portfolios in order to build their green credentials.”
“Environmental awareness is constantly at the forefront of Siemens Energy’s products and solutions and the new systems will offer fewer emissions, while adhering to the industry’s sustainability index.”
Showcased on the Siemens stand will be the seal-less compressor STC-ECO used in sour-gas and subsea applications, as well as Siemens’ new SGT-750, a twin-shaft industrial gas turbine, which is one of the most optimized systems available in the market. A key feature of the new system is the level of serviceability, as maintenance downtime for the machine has been cut-down to only one day per year and this is enhanced by the ability to perform maintenance work on site on the installed machine.
Proven components from other Siemens gas turbines are used to ensure maximized dependability and harmful emissions are reduced by the machine’s dry low emission (DLE) combustion system.
Technology experts from Siemens will be presenting at the conference on Monday, February 14, 4pm on the subject of “VSDS Motor Inventor Design Concept for Compressor Trains Avoiding Interharmonics in Operating Speed Range”, and on Tuesday, February 15, 2pm on the subject of “Onsite Determination of the Control Line for Integrally Geared Compressors for Avoidance of Impeller Fatigue Failures.” These experts will also be on hand at the Siemens booth on Tuesday, February 15, at 4pm.
Interviews with Siemens representatives will be available on site at METS. For more information or to arrange a meeting, please contact Joerg Drescher, Head of Energy Communications for Siemens Middle East, on +971 55 200 2016.
