Siemens Industry, Inc. announces the completion of the world’s largest onshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) compressor “mega-train” for Qatargas in the Middle Eastern country of Qatar. The last of the 72 Siemens Robicon Perfect Harmony Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) was installed and brought online.

Qatar sits atop the world’s third largest gas reserves, and these new LNG projects have allowed the country to raise its overall LNG production capacity to 77 million tonnes annually, thereby meeting the demands of global LNG buyers.

In addition to the 72 Robicon Perfect Harmony Variable Frequency Drives, the Siemens’ scope of supply also included 72 VFD control houses and four 33KV switchgear. The first order for the initial 12 drives was placed in 2004.
