In 2010, NEW JCM was invited to participate in one of the most significant turbo-machinery revamp projects in Pakistan involving 3x trains of LP/HP MHI 5V-6+5V-6 compressors. As a proven technology leader in reducing total ownership cost, NEW JCM’s optimum performance proposal for upgrading the 3x trains has impressed OGDC’s rotating team and its engineering consulting company, ENAR. All the 3x trains have been shipped to NEW JCM’s Jinzhou state-of-the-art facilities for revamp, proving again its position as a technology and service leader in the compressor industry against international competitors.
The project’s scope included complete feasibility and engineering studies, re-rating of the compressors to meet new site operating conditions, and the implementatin of mechanical running test and PTC-10 class II performance tests.
The control system for dry gas seals were upgraded and revamped according to AP617 standards, while work on the 3x trains were completed in 11 months to meet on-the-ground requirements for gas production in Pakistan.
The result of more than half a century of design and manufacturing expertise, our compressors have established an outstanding record for performance, efficiency, reliability and low maintenance in the most demanding upstream, midstream, and downstream applications.
Today, NEW JCM has more than 1,000 operating units – including centrifuge compressors and steam turbines. Each of our unit is manufactured to stringent specifications – including ISO 9001 – in state-of-the-art facilities.
