Multi-million dollar gas compression unit delivered to SkillsTech Australia

SkillsTech Australia students have the opportunity to study some state-of-the-art technology after the TAFE institute’s Acacia Ridge Training Centre recently took delivery of a new multi-million dollar portable Coal Seam Gas (CSG) compression package.

SkillsTech Australia Business Manager Chris Kroehn said the new delivery would ensure SkillsTech Australia remained a leader in CSG training.

“The brand-new, 18-metre, NOMAD mobile gas compression unit has just arrived from the Canadian manufacturer, Bidell Gas Compression, and will be on display at the Acacia Ridge Training Centre for the next three months,” Kroehn said.

Bidell Vice President of Sales and Applications Mat Clark said the patented gas compression unit with its fully portable feature is revolutionary technology and is now available in Australia.

“We have worked closely with SkillsTech Australia to prepare for the arrival after shipment from Bidell’s North American manufacturing facility,” Clark said.

“Weighing in at 53.5 tonnes, it gives CSG workers the flexibility in the field to extract gas in a matter of days, whereas normally this could take several weeks.”
