Simotics XP Chemstar is a customized solution from Siemens for the chemical and petrochemical industries as well as oil and gas. The new low-voltage motors are offered with preconfigured industry-specific option packages tailored to the specific requirements of the process industry. Benefits for customers include fast, simple processes, standardized components and low lifecycle costs. These motors offer a high level of reliability under even extreme conditions and in potentially explosive atmospheres while providing precisely tailored compliance with industry-specific requirements.
Siemens has signed an agreement with WorleyParsons to explore greater collaboration on energy and power infrastructure projects, grid optimization, integration of renewable technologies, and energy efficiency and storage technologies in North East South America and the Caribbean (NESAC) region.
A clean, reliable power supply is critical for offshore oil and gas assets. Siemens is now applying its extensive electrification experience in the marine industry to offshore oil and gas, with a focus on reducing emissions and risk in particularly unforgiving operational environments. The company's advanced lithium-ion battery-based solution, known as BlueVault, is suited for both all-electric and hybrid energy-storage applications.
Siemens' Dresser-Rand business recently commissioned an LNGo-HP (high-pressure) micro-scale natural gas liquefaction system for Altagas Ltd. in Dawson Creek, British Columbia, Canada. The modular, expandable LNGo technology enables efficient installation, especially in a demanding environment like Dawson Creek. The Dawson Creek facility, with a capacity of approximately 30,000 gallons of LNG per day, commenced production on January 25, 2018.
Siemens has launched Pipelines 4.0, an integrated approach to the engineering, supply and life cycle optimization of pipeline assets, tailored to meet the evolving needs of North American operators. The solution combines equipment and turnkey packages for pipeline stations with data analytics, life cycle service and cyber security, building on the company's extensive pipeline experience, product breadth and domain expertise in rotating equipment, electrification, automation and digitalization.
Siemens is utilizing its digitalization knowledge and experience and applying it to the oil and gas production industry with its Topsides 4.0 solution. Underpinned by secure communications and centered around the key modules of compression, power generation, power distribution, and automation, Siemens Topsides 4.0 offers a digital lifecycle solution to offshore production facilities.
Using the combined expertise from its acquisitions of Dresser-Rand and Rolls-Royce Energy business, Siemens launches the latest evolution of its gas turbine portfolio – the SGT-A35 RB. The unit addresses the need for more cost-effective solutions for the offshore oil and gas industry by increasing the power density of the topside power generating equipment, thus reducing the required space claim. The lightweight, aeroderivative gas turbine can generate up to 38 megawatts (MW) and is integrated into a compact, lightweight Dresser-Rand package, which is up to 30 percent smaller and lighter than Industrial RB211 predecessors.
