MAN Diesel & Turbo SE (Augsburg, Germany; www.man.eu) has been awarded the contract for a major project to construct eleven turbomachinery trains in China. The contract value is in excess of €125 million. The site of the project is Yinchuan in the Ningxia region where air separation units (ASUs) are being built under the management of Linde and Hangyang for one of the world’s largest coal-to-liquids (CTL) plants. The chemical process used requires huge quantities of oxygen. The turbomachinery ordered will be used in an ASU that will generate about 40,000 ton/d of oxygen. The plant is operated by the Shenhua Ningxia Coal Industry Group Co. “This major contract is confirmation that we have identified today’s demands for such mega-plants at an early stage and responded accordingly“, says René Umlauft, CEO of MAN Diesel & Turbo. “The MAX1 axial compressor used in all eleven machine trains was the most challenging compressor development project in the company’s history and has proved its worth yet again.“ Each machine train consists of three different MAN products: a six-stage MAX1 axial/centrifugal compressor type AR115/06M with high-pressure radial component, an also six-stage…
