Customised actuator solution secures Gazprom contract

16 July 2013

Demonstrating its engineering skills, responsiveness and flexibility, AUMA has adapted its modular actuator design to meet the flow control needs of Gazprom gas compressor stations in Siberia.

The contract with Gazprom, a global energy company holding the world’s largest natural gas reserves, is the latest in a series of international oil and gas actuator installations for the modular actuation specialists.

Having identified an opportunity to propose actuation technology to replace existing equipment, AUMA researched the station’s installed control system requirements. The company’s actuator engineering experts were deployed to produce customised wiring and circuitry diagrams to meet the precise needs of the scheme.

AUMA’s R&D resulted in production of a special version actuator for the company which fitted into the established installation and provided enhancements with speed of operation and modularity of design.

Having demonstrated its technical capabilities, and ability to meet the scheme’s rapid delivery requirements for an initial five stations, AUMA has been commissioned to equip a further seven stations with its electric actuation technology. To date, over 200 explosion-proof actuators with integrated controls and high speed, part–turn gearboxes have been supplied. This figure is set to rise to 300 actuators installed by the end of 2014.
