Atomenergomash completes Europe’s 1st test rig for medium- and large-scale LNG plants equipment

Earlier, Atomenergomash companies mastered the manufacturing of medium coil-wound LNG heat exchangers and drill mud treatment systems for the gas and petrochemical industry

Atomenergomash completes Europe’s 1st test rig for medium- and large-scale LNG plants equipment

Moscow, August 20 - Neftegaz.RU. Atomenergomash, ROSATOM’s mechanical engineering division, has completed the construction of the Europe’s 1st and the 3rd in the world test rig intended for equipment of medium- and large-scale LNG plants.

The commissioning permit for the system installed at the NIIEFA site in St. Petersburg, has been granted.
Certification tests of both Russian and imported LNG production facilities are planned to be conducted at the test rig.

The rig is a large laboratory facility intended for testing pumps, expanders, and compressors.
If necessary, the facility may be adapted for testing other equipment.

Atomenergomash Director General Andrey Nikipelov said commenting on the event:
  • Completion of the test rig for testing medium- and large-scale LNG production facilities in Russia will reduce dependence on equipment import while contributing to the development of a new sector of the Russian industry
  • Moreover, increased availability of testing at a dedicated site in Russia will allow domestic manufacturers to expand the range of equipment and make it more competitive over its foreign counterparts
Today, manufacturing of LNG project facilities is one of the key areas of the development of non-nuclear businesses for ROSATOM’s mechanical engineering division.

In 2020, the 1st large-scale LNG pump in the history of the Russian gas and petrochemical industry was put into commercial operation.
Afrikantov OKBM (an Atomenergomash company) developed and manufactured the electric pump intended for loading LNG into gas carriers.

Atomenergomash plans include the expansion of the LNG equipment range as well as localization of a wide range of equipment for large-scale LNG production projects, LNG-powered icebreakers and LNG carriers.
