Testing of first MAN hybrid axial compressor

By Gerald Ondrey |

MAN Diesel & Turbo SE (Augsburg; www.mandieselturbo.com) and MTU Aero Engines GmbH (Munich, both Germany; www.mtu.de) have completed their preparations for the first test run of a new MAN axial compressor at MTU’s Munich test stand. This opens the way for the future deployment of a new generation of axial compressors that will enable the economically viable operation of mega processing plants worldwide. With support from the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, development teams from MAN Diesel & Turbo and MTU have worked together closely for three years to develop a new generation of axial compressors. This hybrid, which is based on proven, robust industrial design as well as on compressor technology derived from stationary gas turbines and aircraft engines, meets the requirements of future mega processing plants. In view of economies of scale, process licensers and plant constructors all over the world are of the opinion that future processing plants will be significantly larger than those of today. This applies in various sectors, e.g. the extraction of high-quality fuels from gas, coal and biomass, the capture and storage of the CO2 generated in large-scale power plants and enhanced oil recovery from…
