Fuel Gas Boosting

Project Description

P3P is an organization that develops, operates and maintains both their own and third party sites in the energy, waste and vertical farming sectors in the United Kingdom. For one of their customers, APS Group, on the Isle of Wight, P3P developed a dedicated energy center to provide heat, power and CO2 to the onsite glasshouses. The project consisted of two 5.5 MWe Rolls Royce gas engines and associated CO2 and heat recovery equipment.

To overcome the low pressure in the national gas grid, fuel gas boosting was required. CSH delivered two skid mounted Fuel Gas Boosters, installed in a noise attenuating enclosure, to increase the fuel gas pressure to 5 bar(g).
