GEA Delivers Heat Exchangers for Yamal LNG Plant
GEA Batignolles Technologies Thermiques (GEA BTT), a subsidiary of GEA Heat Exchangers, landed a record order with a value of over 40 million Euros from the plant contracting companies Technip and JGC. The order was for more than 400 air-cooled heat exchangers for the three-line liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant under construction on the Siberian peninsula of Yamal.
GEA BTT will design the heat exchangers, manufacture them over a period of three years, and deliver them to the customer. Technip and JGC are developing and building the first arctic LNG plant in Russia. Commissioning is planned for three phases and is scheduled to take place from 2016 to 2018.
The operating company Yamal LNG – in which Novatek holds 60 % interest, Total and CNPC 20 % each, – intends to build a plant based on the South Tambey field. The heat exchangers delivered by GEA will be installed in the three LNG lines, each of which will process 5.5 million metric tons of gas annually.
