MAN Compressors Due For China Project


Published:

MAN Diesel & Turbo will supply 11 turbomachinery trains for air separation plants at one of the world’s largest coal liquefaction plants.

Shenhua Ningxia Coal Industry Group Co. Ltd. is building the plant, which will require huge quantities of oxygen, at Yinchuan in the Ningxia Autonomous Region of northwestern China.
The MAN turbomachinery, which is valued at more than €125 million, will generate 44,100 tpd (40,000 T/d) of oxygen from the atmosphere.

Each machine train consists of three MAN products: a six-stage, MAX1 axial/centrifugal compressor (AR115/06M) with a high-pressure radial component; a six-stage integrally geared compressor (RG 56-6); and a condensing steam turbine (DK080/250R) acting as the driver for both compressors.

MAN said its MAX1 axial compressor was the result of several years of intensive development that was completed in 2011.
