Siemens Wins Canadian Turbines Contract

German engineering giant Siemens has won a contract to supply two SGT-300 industrial gas turbines for a Montney producer in Alberta, Canada, it said January 17.

It is its first export of this model of turbine to Canada and it will help support production growth for the customer in the Grande Prairie Region, northeast of Edmonton, alongside the unnamed company’s existing dehydration and compression facility. When completed in 2020, the plant will provide the customer with an additional 50mn ft³/day of natural gas processing capacity and 30,000 barrels/day of condensate stabilisation capacity, Siemens said. Commissioning is expected in the autumn of this year.

“The SGT-300 unit was a logical choice for this project, given its high efficiency, innovative dry low emissions combustion system, and more than 4.5mn hours of operating experience worldwide,” said Siemens, without disclosing the value.
