JSC Ukrtransgaz will receive mobile nitrogen compressor stations manufactured by ES Group Europe s.r.o.Zaiets Ilona
The Czech branch of ES Group is working on the manufacture of mobile nitrogen compressor stations for the needs of JSC UKRTRANSGAZ. The stations are intended for production of nitrogen with the volumetric capacity of 25 nm3/min and pressure of 21 MPa. Nitrogen will be used to test and develop gas wells during their overhaul and ensure safe fire-fighting operations.
A mobile nitrogen compressor station has standard dimensions for moving on public roads without getting additional permits. It is installed in a specialized container and placed on the chassis of an off-road container truck with an 8×8 drive. In the middle of the container, subsystems are provided that allow the use of the station at ambient temperatures from minus 30 to plus 45 degrees Celsius.
The selection of technology and bidding process was conducted by Tetra Tech Es, Inc., acting as the procurement agent for the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine and the Energy Community Secretariat, as the procurement was funded by USAID.
This project is implemented by ES Group Europe s.r.o. jointly with the Ukrainian enterprise “Dalgakiran Compressor Ukraine”, because our priority is greater localization of production in Ukraine.
To remind, in 2021-22 ES Group Europe s.r.o. developed and manufactured two mobile nitrogen compressor stations with a Cummins diesel engine to meet the individual requirements of LLC Gas TSO of Ukraine. The stations were designed to produce nitrogen gas with a concentration of 90% from atmospheric air directly at the site of use. Now they are successfully operated to fulfill the tasks of stable functioning of the Ukrainian gas transportation system.
