A reduction in both the time and the cost of installation of medium-to-large industrial gas turbine mechanical drive packages can be achieved. Integration of the gas turbine driver, driven equipment, and ancillaries on two easily-assembled skids is made possible by the application of several technological developments, including aeroderivative gas turbine engines, dry gas compressor seals, compact plate-type heat exchangers, variable-speed AC motor drives, and microprocessor-based control systems which are certified for hazardous environments. By minimizing the need for interconnection of piping and wiring between multiple equipment and controls locations, site installation and commissioning time is drastically reduced. This can result in the savings of hundreds of thousands of dollars and several weeks time in an overall construction project.
