MAX STREICHER Anlagentechnik GmbH & Co. KG realises CHP plant for natural gas storage in Jemgum (Germany)
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.
Standardised gas processing plants in Madulari and Burcioaia / Romania
On behalf of OMV Petrom, the joint venture STREICHER-Bilfinger EMS builds two new standardised gas processing plants in Romania within the scope of an EPCC-project, under the leadership of MAX STREICHER ROMANIA SRL. In the near future, this kind of standard shall be expanded to further projects of the OMV-portfolio. It is the purpose of the new gas processing plants, to feed high quality gas into the Transgaz pipeline according to international standards. The contract comprises the project management and coordination, procurement, construction, HSE management as well as the commissioning. Close to the already existing gas processing plants in Madulari and Burcioaia, new standardised plants will be erected within the next 15 months, in the course of the OMV pilot project in cooperation with STREICHER.
STREICHER receives the IPLOCA Environmental award
MAX STREICHER GmbH & Co. KG aA has received the IPLOCA Environmental award in October 2014. Since 2004 this prize is awarded to companies in the field of pipeline construction, which are focusing on sustainability in the execution of their services. This includes for instance the conscious use of resources, the reduction of greenhouse gas or the protection of flora and fauna. Shell is the sponsor of this award. STREICHER applied for the IPLOCA Environmental award with the pilot project „optimising the welding process by using the welding bead“. Besides the reduction of the fuel consumption by 50%, also the exhaust, soot and greenhouse gas emissions could be reduced significantly. Furthermore, the noise exposure has been improved due to the application of a particular diesel generator.
