Contracted by Ener-G once again, Utile have supplied 8No. natural gas booster packages to supply elevated gas pressure to feed their CHP engines installed on an 18 MWatt gas fired STOR and Peak Power lopping power station. Using their Utile 90 series multistage, centrifugal gas boosters, Natural Gas at a flow rate of 500Sm3/hr was boosted up to 200mbarg using 5.5kW WEG, Safe Area IE2 motors. Due to plant room space restrictions, a bespoke design was employed to minimise the footprint and ensure manifold connects were accurately positioned for local connections. The Utile ‘Smartdrive’ control system was installed with ABB inverters to maintain precise discharge pressure whilst operating at the lowest speed possible, thus reducing the absorbed power to a minimum.
