Hibernia Oil Field equipped with Maag Turbogear Units
Maag High Speed Double Helical Gears
Prudhoe Bay petrochemical plant in Alaska, where numerous MAAG high-speed gearboxes are installed between gas turbines and centrifugal compressors to transmit a total of 560,000 kW.
The Hibernia Oil Platform, Grand Banks Newfoundland Canada uses MAAG Gears for their main and auxiliary gas injection trains. Main gas injection installation module Driver: LM2500 with Dresser Rand DR-61 Power Turbines Driver: Multi-Tandem Dresser Rand high-pressure centrifugal compressors TYPE: GB-52 Power: 28,872 HP (each) Speed input: 3428 rpm Speed output: 10933 rpm
The increasingly exacting requirements of gearbox design have also involved ever increasing pitch line velocities. Pitch line velocities exceeding 220 m/s have been achieved during back-to-back testing of gearboxes developed for basic research. These gearboxes transmit about 30 MW at pinion speeds of 16,000 rpm.
