Currently, the company astora GmbH & Co. KG builds one of Germany´s largest natural gas cavern storages in Jemgum (East Frisia). Therefore, MAX STREICHER Anlagentechnik GmbH & Co. KG designs and constructs a plant for heat and power systems. The new plant has been designed in a container system and will be operational pre-assembled and tested in the factory. That way, the time for assembly and commissioning on site can be reduced to a minimum.
Essential components of the plant are: fuel gas processing, gas compressor, micro gas turbine, exhaust gas heat exchanger and EI&C engineering. A special feature of the heat and power unit is a micro gas turbine, which converts the accrued sealing gas of the main gas compressor into heat and power. The recovered energy will be recycled into the existing plant systems. In comparison to usual gas engines, the micro gas turbine is able to use a wide spectrum of calorific value with perceptible reduced maintenance requirements. The application of latest micro gas turbines in heat and power systems is based on the idea of the responsible use of natural resources.
