POWER ELECTRONICS SUCCESSFULLY INSTALLS EQUIPMENT AT THE PORT OF BARCELONA
ENAGAS, the main carrier of natural gas in Spain, puts its stamp of approval on the XMV660 Outdoor medium voltage VSD manufactured by Power Electronics.
Power Electronics proves its XMV660´s advantages through multiple international installations.
ENAGAS now enjoying substantial savings of up to 40% on pump energy consumption.
- Paterna 15 July 2016- Power Electronics has successfully concluded the implementation of three XMV660 Outdoor drives in the Port of Barcelona. ENAGAS, the main carrier of natural gas in Spain has put its trust in the outdoor rated XMV660 medium voltage variable speed drive from Power Electronics for improving the energy efficiency of its regasification plants. After proving the suitability of the drives through many reference installations outside of Spain, ENAGAS installed three XMV660 6kV drives in the Port of Barcelona with a total capacity of 1550kW. Three variable speed drives to feed LNG cryogenic pumps in total: two primary units that will control Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) pumps and one secondary unit that will manage the pumping of the saltwater exchanger. This system will achieve substantial savings on partial load operation with peak savings up to 40% of total consumption.
“The key differentiating feature of this project lies in the XMV’s construction. It is currently the most compact and reliable outdoor rated MV variable speed drive on the market, with a unique filter-less cyclonic ventilation system that requires no maintenance, unlike traditional air-cooled systems which use unwieldy removable particle filters, and has a C5-M degree of surface coating protection suitable for the most demanding environments. Additionally the complete exterior enclosure is manufactured from stainless steel. This project reinforces the competitive position of the XMV660 drive not only providing savings in the regasification processes, but also in transportation, civil works, installation and reduction of operating costs as for example there is no additional switch-room air conditioning load to deal with” says Enrique Martí – Key Accounts Manager, Spain.
“Soon we will launch two more VSDs in Huelva and a third in Cartagena. This is undoubtedly the best proof of our customer satisfaction ”
An unbeatable product offer with the unique Power Electronics Power ON Support philosophy makes the XMV660 Outdoor the ideal choice for all outdoor medium voltage drive challenges worldwide.
ENAGAS is Spain’s leading natural gas transmission company and Technical Manager of the Spanish gas system. It has around 12,000 Km of gas pipelines, three underground storage facilities in Serrablo (Huesca), Gaviota (Vizcaya) and Yela (Guadalajara) and four regasification plants in Barcelona, Huelva, Cartagena and Gijón. It also owns 50% of the BBG regasification plant in Bilbao and it has recently reached an agreement to increase its stake in Sagunto plant to 72.5%. In addition, Enagás holds 100% of Gascan, a company constructing two regasification plants in the Canary Islands. Enagás is also present in Latin America (Mexico, Chile and Peru) and Europe (Sweden, Italy, Greece and Albania).
