ABB, a leading power and automation technology group, has been chosen to supply Qatar’s largest gas producer with 16 continuous emission monitoring solutions (CEMS) units.
The Qatargas 1 Plateau Maintenance Project (PMP) includes the construction of new acid gas removal and sulphur recovery units adjacent to the existing units. Once completed, these new facilities will reduce the level of sulfur in the Qatargas 1 feed gas to three Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) production trains. The PMP aims at maintaining the current liquefied natural gas (LNG) production capacity. TCJV was awarded the Engineering Procurement and Construction contract associated with QG1 PMP and ABB was selected by TCJV to supply CEMS units.
ABB’s technology will be installed on top of the gas turbines and sulphur recovery incinerator exhaust stacks at Qatargas’ facilities in Ras Laffan Industrial City. This purchase order includes ABB’s gas analyzers and accompanying technology systems. The CEMS provided by ABB will be used to monitor Nitrogen Monoxide, Nitrogen Dioxide, and Sulphur Dioxide emitted at the site.
ABB’s CEMS solution is based on Ultraviolet Resonance Absorption Spectroscopy (UV - RAS). ABB’s UV-RAS Technology can measure very low concentrations of Nitrogen Monoxide, Nitrogen Dioxide, and Sulphur Dioxide in one analyzer.
