Customised container solutions

Compressed air is in high demand. However, where standard solutions no longer meet specific customer requirements, flexibility is called for. Leading compressed air specialist Boge Kompressoren supplies tailor-made system solutions for plant construction.

Boge combines several compressors, dryers and filters, and/or assembles entire compressed air lines specific to customer requirements, in containers or basic frame systems, so that users do not have to deal with complicated spatial planning when building a compressed air system from several individual components. The containers are also suitable for outdoor areas where they protect the plant from unauthorised access and extreme weather conditions, such as temperatures well below freezing. Thanks to special paint, the container shell offers protection from corrosion in aggressive environments if required. Valuable space is freed up in interior areas and production halls.

Recently, Boge  handled a major order for the operator of a natural gas compressor station in eastern Europe. Two screw compressors, each with two cold and adsorption dryers and two nitrogen membrane generators have been replaced in the 40-foot special container – including cabling and pipework. The overall system provides nitrogen and compressed air at its deployment location. The user deploys the nitrogen as rinsing gas to safely clean containers for combustible liquids. Compressed air is used to control valves. It took only six months from the order being awarded to BOGE and delivery to eastern Europe.

“For the oil and gas industry in particular, there are a plethora of specifications which our customers expect us to adhere to,” said Nalin Amunugama, General Manager of BOGE Kompressoren Asia Pacific. “Flexibility is our top most priority.  We meet the special requirements of customers, even if we sometimes have to plan and build our compressors from scratch. For example, a traditional compressor may need be fitted with a different motor; some customers require special stainless-steel pipework or cabling with flame-resistant cables in the container; or they may specify the use of components from a particular manufacturer. Should any of the project details change during the execution process, BOGE will be able to  re-plan the positioning of electrical connections so that the entire station can ultimately be installed to meet the specific needs of the customer.”
