Howden Thomassen Awarded Major Project With Korea Gas Corporation

Howden Thomassen Compressors have been awarded a major project with Korea Gas Corporation, the largest liquefied natural gas import company in the world, to install two new HP compressors at in the LNG terminal in Samcheok, South Korea.

Howden Thomassen Compressors has been awarded a major project by the largest Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) company in the world, the Korea Gas Corporation (KOGAS), to manufacture and install two C-45.3 HP compressors in two stages at the planned LNG Terminal in Samcheok, South Korea.

A spokesperson for Howden Thomassen Compressors explains: “Because we specialise in manufacturing compressors we knew that this was a project that we wanted to be involved in. This new project is not only a really big project for us, but also a very important one for the LNG market, which has steadily increased in popularity over recent years. We are thrilled to be working with KOGAS on this project, and we’re very much looking forward to creating and installing these two new C-45.2 HP Compressors at the LNG Terminal.”

The LNG Terminal, in Samcheok in South Korea has yet to be built, but once construction is completed on the terminal, it will be the fifth terminal of its kind in South Korea, and it will provide gas to the North East of the southern half of the Korean peninsula. The company is looking forward to working with KOGAS on the project, particularly because of the growth of the LNG market.

The spokesperson for Howden Thomassen Compressors continues: “As the LNG market has increased in popularity over recent years, it’s understandable that a fifth terminal is not yet built, we have a lot of time to plan, design and build the compressors. These compressors will be non-lubricated and will be equipped with Thomassen’s Free Floating Piston (FFP™) technology, which reduces rider ring wear to an absolute minimum. Also process piping, process air fin coolers and local control panels will be part of the scope of supply. The compressors will be driven by induction motors with a power rating of 2,8000kW each. We are very much looking forward to starting this project with KOGAS in the near future and we think this project will present us with a new and refreshing challenge in the coming months.”

Howden is one of the world’s largest and longest established manufacturers of air and gas handling equipment. The company was established in Glasgow in 1854 as an engineering firm, and has grown to become a worldwide organisation with over 4,000 employees and companies in 21 countries. Howden is owned by Colfax Corporation, and designs and supplies heavy duty industrial fans, rotary heater exchangers, compressors and gas cleaning equipment to customer specifications.

Big Hearted Tradie Organises Valuable ‘Thank You’ for Bravehearts

When Brisbane electrician Rob Vernon heard Bravehearts’ call for help in renovating its new Strathpine office, he told his team to save the date, December 15 for a special opportunity for service this holiday season.

“I heard Bravehearts was expanding and in urgent need of tradies,” said Mr Vernon.“I’ve heard a lot about the work they do. I also know that, sadly, the demand for their crisis services is quite high too.”

The owner of Brisbane-based Vernons Electrical was personally touched by the work of the national child protection advocacy group this year, when the organisation provided much-needed support to a member of his family in crisis.

“I know their support made a difference to my family, so when I heard about their call for tradies, I knew it was a great opportunity to give back to Bravehearts for their tireless work with child abuse victims and their families,” Mr Vernon said.

All of Mr Vernon’s staff will join him on December 15 for a day-long tradie blitz on the new Bravehearts base, a Moreton Bay Regional Council-owned building in Strathpine.

Between his team of electricians and the generous support of his suppliers, Mr Vernon secured donations that will see the Bravehearts’ office fitted out with more than $15,000 worth of services and supplies.

“We are installing a brand new split system air conditioner, solar power, new lights, power points, security cameras, and security lights,” said Mr Vernon.

Spokesperson and founder of Bravehearts, Hetty Johnston, said the donations will be well received. “We have quite a bit of work to do before we can open the doors of our new office,” said Ms Johnston. “Bravehearts would like to express sincere thanks and appreciation to Vernons Electrical and their generous suppliers such as Solar Spec, Haymans Electrical, Airconditioning Direct, and Beacon Lighting. Christmas comes early sometimes and the timing could not be better as we continue to make Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child.”

Bravehearts Inc. is a registered Charity registered with the ATO as a DGR (Deductible Gift Recipient). They employ more than 50 staff across 9 offices. Bravehearts’ members comprise survivors, parents, friends, partners, professionals and non-abusive members of the community who share in the belief that child sexual assault must stop. The Strathpine office will be Bravehearts’ home base for rolling-out education programs to kids across Brisbane’s north.
