Burckhardt Introduces Cost-Saving Supply Method For API 618 Compressors

17 January 2020

Burckhardt Compression has made internal changes to offer API Standard 618 compressor systems in a more cost-effective manner to its current and future customers. The changes allow Burckhardt to use its affiliates in other countries to supply compressor parts or the entire compressor, which helps customers save on the overall cost of the system.

The compressors feature a modular design that takes advantage of global processes, engineering and supply chain, the company said.

Hyundai Engineering Co. ordered the first two compressors through this method. The compressors, which will be driven by 5 MW electric motors, will be used for propane dehydrogenation in the production of propylene at a petrochemical plant in Poland.

“Burckhardt Compression has leveraged its global setup with locations around the world to offer this new, capex-optimized line of compressors,” says Marcel Pawlicek, CEO of Burckhardt Compression. “It allows us to target and win over new groups of customers for our products.”
