BW Group (BW) signed a 15-year agreement with Pakistan GasPort Limited (PGPL) to provide LNG regasification services utilizing a new-build floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) for the second Pakistan LNG terminal.
BW’s FSRU, currently at Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) in Korea, will be utilized for this project. To be delivered in Q4 of 2016, the vessel offers a low environmental footprint, high efficiency, storage capacity in excess of 170,000 m3 and a peak regasification capacity of 750 MMcfd.
Iqbal Z. Ahmed, Chairman of PGPL, said, “This landmark project will reduce Pakistan’s gas deficit by 30%, ensure fuel for 3,600 megawatts of new power generation plants being constructed in Pakistan to reduce power outages by 80%, and save some $1.5 B in annual foreign-exchange savings.”
The project will be commissioned by June 30, 2017, at Port Qasim, Karachi.
A New Approach to Large Medium Voltage Drives
By attending this webinar, you will learn the benefits of using a single-channel, Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) solution for applications above 9,000Hp with operating voltages from 11kV to 13.8kV. We will explore a VFD solution that does not require a step-up output transformer but still provides maximum control, environmental and motor flexibility to the end user. We will also discuss how to provide maximum reliability using power cell redundancy and the removal of water cooled components. The topics covered in the webinar include:
•A brief review of the multi-cell M2C topology
•A review of the physical implementation and the advantages it offers to the end user
•A presentation of the various implementations and ratings available for use on typical pump, compressor and fan applications.
