Recognizing Opportunities - Developing International Markets
The 24th International Convention and Trade Fair in Bremen from 27 to 29 January 2015 got the year off to a successful start for the NEUMAN & ESSER GROUP. Jens Wulff from NEUMAN & ESSER Deutschland and Thomas Lueder from NEAC Compressor Service were especially pleased about the distinctly international flavor. It is a clear indication of the growing interest in biogas use worldwide. Around 6,300 delegates and trade visitors took the opportunity to find out about the latest technological developments from the nearly 350 exhibitors.
"We have had many interesting conversations", said NEA product manager Emilia Hollmann. "70-80% of our visitors came from abroad, not only from Europe but also from Asia and Africa," she added.
In respect of NEA’s focus on international biogas markets this was very congenial. Also with the new mobile biogas compressor MoBIO 800 NEA responds to the changes in the market, which calls for more flexibility due to the situation.
The MoBIO 800 concept consists of two 40' containers, each mounted on a trailer. In the first container, two oil-free, gas-tight and thus zero-emission NEA reciprocating compressors are installed powered by a 315 kW mid-engine. In the second container, cooling, control and regulation are housed. "A great deal of technology in a small space", marveled a visitor at the biogas innovation.
The mobile compressor unit provides a gas volume of 800 Nm³/h at different pressure conditions. The suction pressures vary between 1 to 10 bar abs. The final pressures range from 16 to 85 bar – depending on assembly location and gas grid.
The mobile biomethane compressor unit MoBIO 800 enables an early injection into the gas grid before the stationary compressor plant is put into operation. Thus, a significantly better efficiency of the overall system is guaranteed. And this is another step towards a long-term investment security.
