MAN Turbo AG receives follow-up order for air separation plant
Customer decision based on good experience
Datang International Power Corporation Ltd., China's second-largest energy group, has commissioned MAN Turbo AG with the production and delivery of four compressor trains for air separation. The four trains will be part of a coal gasification plant in Keqi in Inner Mongolia, with each train consisting of an isotherm compressor, gear compressor and a steam turbine as the drive unit. The decision to place the order was based on the outstanding technical concept and the wide experience of the company with similar types of compressor train to those supplied in large numbers over the past few years by MAN Turbo, of which some are already in operation.
Because of the large supplies of coal in China, the principle of coal gasification is well known there. With its integrated machine concept MAN Turbo has acquired a dominant market share for the upstream process of air separation, thereby extending its position as the leading supplier in this segment.
