Mega-test center

The mega-test center in Duisburg can test compressor trains weighing up to 700 tons and can accommodate up to six compressor trains at once. Capable of full-load, closed-loop compressor string tests to 100 MW, the 591-foot-long (180-meter-long), 131-foot-wide (40-meter-wide) and 115-foot-high (35-meter-high) test center strengthened the company’s position as a leader in the oil and gas market. A direct link between the test center and the heavy-loads crane in the nearby shipping port creates logistical advantages and provides ideal conditions for transporting the machines to and from the test site.
