Siemens to supply ten compressor trains to Petrobras
Efficient production of low-sulfur fuels in Brazilian refineries
Compressors are key components in the desulfurization process in oil refineries. Seven of the ten single shaft compressors Siemens is supplying to Petrobras will be driven by steam turbines. These steam turbines are also included in the scope of supply and will be fed with process steam from the refineries. A further three compressors will be driven by electric motors. The use of different drive technologies will enable optimized utilization of available steam resources in the refinery process and thus make the production of low-sulfur fuels highly efficient.
"The new order from Petrobras is the biggest single order in the field of process compression that Siemens has ever received", said Thomas Dalstein, CEO of the Siemens Process Compression Business Unit. "With our technology we can support Petrobras in producing cleaner low-sulfur fuels for Brazil. Furthermore, our machines work very efficiently and therefore guarantee the best use of resources," Dalstein added.
