Siemens to supply industrial gas turbines for cogeneration project in Alberta, Canada
OAKVILLE, ON, /CNW/ - Siemens Canada has received an order from Inter Pipeline Ltd ("Inter Pipeline") to supply two industrial gas turbine generators for a Central Utilities Block (CUB) which is part of its Heartland Petrochemical Complex currently under construction in Alberta's Industrial Heartland near Fort Saskatchewan.

The gas turbine generator (GTG) sets will be a critical part of the CUB, supplying power and steam to the propane dehydrogenation and polypropylene facilities within the Heartland Complex. This facility will produce polypropylene, a valuable petrochemical used to produce plastics in consumer products. Commercial operation of the CUB is expected in late 2021.
The agreement for the GTGs includes two SGT-800 (54MW ISO) gas turbine packages and associated auxiliaries. The SGT-800 combines a robust, reliable design with high efficiency and low emissions, making it an ideal choice for municipalities, industrial power generation, and the oil and gas industry. Its high-exhaust energy content makes the SGT-800 particularly well suited for combined heat and power and combined-cycle applications. Reliability and low lifecycle costs are the key features of the SGT-800 which has wide fuel flexibility.
"We chose Siemens SGT-800 technology because this gas turbine has a great track record of providing reliable, clean power. Inter Pipeline is committed to efficient operations and keeping our emissions low," said Chuck Ellis, General Manager Project Development at Inter Pipeline.
"We are excited to expand our global SGT-800 gas turbine fleet into Canada. We have more than 340 units sold worldwide with a record of successful installations," said Arne Wohlschlegel, Vice President, Power and Gas, Siemens Canada Limited. "This project, including the long-term service agreement, underscores Siemens' commitment to our customer Inter Pipeline and we look forward to the successful implementation of this important greenfield project."
The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported in April that the US set records for natural gas production in 2017.

Maximize Profitability with Advanced Analytics at Natural Gas Processing Plants
Incorporating economic data into process modeling is key to optimizing operations and maximizing profits at gas processing plants. However, maintaining optimal operations are often challenging due to changing market dynamics, contract structures and increasing process flexibility. Today, gas processors are leveraging Predictive Control and First Principles models to accurately determine and control the optimal operating targets in real time based on the most current plant conditions and profitability, optimizing recovery of natural gas liquids. Learn how real-time analytics, combined with decision support tools, empower companies to:
•Improve processing margins by up to 5%
•Maximize NGL production through improved availability and optimized process conditions
•Improve compositional control to operate closer to product specifications
