Electrical infrastructure for critical Sasol compressor

[img:Consultants%20-%20Pic%201_0.jpg| ]16 October 2013 - Zest WEG is progressing toward the hot commissioning phase of the biggest medium voltage (MV) variable speed drive (VSD) unit ever supplied by its holding company, the WEG group, worldwide. The equipment was ordered from WEG Germany by the Linde group, which is involved in a project at Sasol. Linde’s order comprised a 9.0 MVA 18 pulse phase shift transformer, a 6.5 MW 4,160 V MVW01 VSD and a 6.5 MW 4P 4,000 V MGF 800 L motor to run a production-critical compressor at Sasol.

of Rand-Air]9 October 2013 - The structural integrity of a gas pipeline and the assurance that the interior of the pipeline is contaminant-free are the two most critical elements in its construction.

Sasol LV motor supply contract

[img:Sasolmotors_0.jpg|Sasol motors]29 July 2013 - Sasol has renegotiated a longstanding contract for the supply of low voltage (LV) electric motors with Zest Electric Motors, part of the Zest WEG group. The contract, first awarded in 1997, has been renewed for a further five years.

“This contract covers Sasol’s South African sites in Sasolburg and Secunda, as well as Sasol Mining and includes products developed to meet the specific needs of its different environments, including flameproof motors for underground mining,” Gary Daines, Zest WEG group’s sales and marketing director, says.

Sasol gas plant electricity aids South Africa’s grid

[img:Sasol%20gas%20plant.thumbnail.jpg| ]15 July 2013 - Sasol recently inaugurated what is the largest gas engine power fired plant in South Africa, at its Sasolburg site. The facility, which comprises 18 Wärtsilä 34SG engines, each with a nominal output of just under 10 MW, has a guaranteed maximum capacity of 155 MW, and a given capacity of 140 MW.

The 140 MW is supplied to Sasol’s own generation uses, but the facility, which has an N+2 redundancy design, has been able to keep all its engines generating power at certain times to help South Africa through a power constrained winter. The plant has thus been able to generate 175 MW at certain times, though this is only possible as it is new and when the maintenance schedule allows for it.
