An integral part of GE’s natural gas solutions including the CNG In A Box system is its high-speed reciprocating (HSR) compressor. These compressors are the core technology in the creation of small and modular gas monetization solutions from optimizing production at a gas or oil well site, creating power in remote areas to transforming the transportation industry with CNG and liquefied natural gas (LNG) alternatives. GE’s new Shenyang HSR compressor facility creates a local supply chain for this technology, cutting lead times by up to 50 percent for regional customers and providing local service support. During the first phase of operation, the Shenyang facility will build to a production capacity of 300 HSR units per year, with the potential for further expansion as the local industry develops. This new capacity for the China market is in addition to GE’s primary HSR manufacturing facility, located near Houston, Texas. This localized manufacturing initiative enables customers to implement GE’s natural gas solutions quickly and economically.The first sets of HSR units produced from the Shenyang facility already have been purchased by Chinese customers CIMC Enric and Jerrywon Energy Equipments Co., Ltd. The new facility, which opened in June, was built at a preexisting GE facility in Shenyang that specializes in renewable energy and flow and process technologies. “GE is committed to helping China in its plans to reduce its dependence on coal power plants, diesel-powered mining and industrial complexes and petrol and diesel-based transportation infrastructure, replacing it with cleaner and locally produced natural gas,” said Xu Xin, general manager, GE Oil & Gas, China. “The grand opening of our new manufacturing facility in Shenyang brings our advanced CNG and LNG technology closer than ever before to our Chinese customers.” GE Oil & Gas’ new manufacturing facility is part of the company’s strategy to localize its footprint and bring advanced fueling technology closer to its customers. The opening of its HSR manufacturing facility allows GE to establish itself as a local expert in China in the unconventional resources space with its innovative natural gas solutions.
“Together with Endurance and other regional customers, we can continue to build China’s natural gas infrastructure and support its efforts to build a sustainable energy future,” said Xin.1 Assuming average light-duty vehicles travel 27,500 miles/year at 17 mpg, with $3.50/gal gasoline and $2.09/gal CNG per gasoline gallon equivalent.
