Zhejiang Satellite Energy Co. Ltd has selected Siemens to provide a reactor effluent compressor train for Phase II of its propane dehydrogenation (PDH) plant in Pinghu City, Zhejian province, China.

The dual-casing compressor train consists of two Siemens STC-SH single-shaft compressors driven by a Siemens SGT-750 industrial gas turbine. Plant commissioning is scheduled for early 2019.

This order follows the Satellite Phase I PDH project, where Siemens supplied a compressor train consisting of two STC-SH (14) compressors and a SGT-700 gas turbine in 2013. The Phase II project represents the first downstream application for Siemens SGT-750 gas turbine.

Shen Zhiming, Deputy General Manager of Satellite Energy Co. Ltd, and Project Manager for the Phase II PDH project, said: “The Phase II PDH project has a tight schedule and once again, Siemens’ project team has worked hard to support us and meet the requirements for this project […] It is a pleasure to again work with such a professional, world-class provider following our successful completion of Phase I.”

The SGT-750 is optimized for direct drives without intermediate gears and has a rotational speed of 6100 rpm. It also enables long intervals between maintenance events, which increases production uptime and reduces lifecycle cost.
