Kawasaki to Provide India with Gas Turbine-driven Natural Gas Compressor and Engineering Services
Aug. 25, 2009
Tokyo, August 25, 2009 — Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. announced today that it has received an order from Afcons-Gunanusa Joint Venture (AGJV) in India to provide a gas turbine-driven natural gas compressor and engineering services for an offshore gas compression module. The module will be installed off Mumbai on the site of the ICP-R Process Platform Project, which is part of the Mumbai High South Re-Development (Phase II) Project operated by the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC).
The compression module is a compact unit comprised of a compressor, driver, gas cooler, scrubber, valves, controllers and other equipment that compresses natural gas at sea and transports it to land via underwater pipelines. Its modular design enables optimum installation in the limited space available on an offshore platform.
The module will be assembled at Gunanusa Utama’s assembly yard in West Java, Indonesia, before being installed on a process platform. The platform is scheduled to be delivered to ONGC in April 2011.
This marks the 51st order for a Kawasaki compression module and the 35th to India.
