In the summer of 1991, NOVA Corporation of Alberta (NOVA) commissioned the first Solar Centaur Taurus T-6502 turbine unit into service on its natural gas pipeline system. The turbine powered a Solar C304 compressor equipped with dry gas seals and magnetic bearings. This paper describes the turbine/compressor package and the application in which it was installed. Experiences during commissioning, start up and the early months of operation are discussed.
