Kobe Steel Opens 40MW Compressor Test Facility
By CT2 Staff19 April 2017
At its Takasago Works facility in Western Japan, Kobe Steel has opened a testing facility for non-standard, large capacity compressors with variable speed motors of up to 40 MW. Construction on the JPY¥8 billion (US$73.5 million) facility began in February of 2015.
Kobe Steel needed a test facility to conduct performance tests at the final stage of its 40 MW class compressors. Their existing test facility could only accommodate up to 20 MW.
