Kakwa River – Balance of Plant
The image above of the Kakwa River mole sieve (temperature swing adsorption) unit and turbo expander train (designed for 200 MMscfd of throughput) are excellent examples. These were non-proprietary equipment packages, however the packager required Equinox expertise for Balance of Plant design.
Broadly, all individual areas of the plant and major equipment packaged all required integration to balance of plant. Each of the packages (listed to left) are specified and integrated. This included power infrastructure, gas and utilities tie-ins, communications and control, pipe racks, cable trays, foundations, etc. This holds true for the other example gas processing facilities on the previous pages.
