Pleasant and Successful Co-operation

Pleasant and Successful Co-operation

For the first time in Aerzener Maschinenfabrik’s company history, the engineering for a VMY compressor package has been carried out in Aerzen, within a recently completed and very successful process gas project. Our subsidiary, Aerzen USA, was responsible for the project management, the packaged unit assembly and start-up.A packaged unit, specially designed for the American market, is the oil-injected compressor, type VMY 436 B. This machine differs from the established Aerzen standard in a number of essential respects. The customer, Tesoro, a leading company in the American energy industry, stipulates that components have to originate mainly from American manufacturers.The design process was the result of close team- work between Aerzen USA and the design management unit of the Process Gas Division (PGD). In consultation with possible suppliers, the components were integrated into a 3D model of the entire unit. Installation and a functional test of the packaged unit were carried out by a qualified American packager under the leadership of Aerzen USA and the department PGD.
