Siemens wins major Iran order

Siemens has received a major order for 12 compressor trains for two onshore natural gas processing plants in Iran. The company Palayesh Parsian Sepehr will operate the plants. Siemens' customer is the EPC Hampa Engineering Corporation. The order volume is in the high double-digit million euro range. Commercial operation is expected end of 2018.

The 12 compressor trains each contain a Siemens STC-SV vertical split compressor and will be used in two natural gas processing plants. Ten of the twelve trains are for the Mohr C2+ hydrocarbon recovery plant, located in Fars Province in south-central Iran. Four of these STC-SV compressors will be driven by Siemens SGT-700 gas turbines, which give the customer a high OPEX benefit, thanks to their reliability and efficiency. Four more compressor trains for the Mohr plant will be driven by Siemens SGT-100 gas turbines and two others will be driven by an electric motor.

The plant in Mohr will process natural gas into C2+ hydrocarbons. Part of these hydrocarbons will serve the domestic Iranian gas market, while the long-chained hydrocarbons will be transported in a pipeline to the Iranian coast 60 km away. The hydrocarbons will be further fractionated at the Assaluyeh plant in Bushehr Province. Siemens will supply another two compressor trains here that will each be driven by a Siemens SST-600 steam turbine. The plant in Assaluyeh will produce important feedstock for the petrochemical industry, including ethane, propane, and butane.
