This paper describes a mobile gas turbine driven compressor plant of 16,000-hp capability. The plant consists of two tractor trailer assemblies, one containing the gas turbine and the other the centrifugal compressor. A discussion of the design limits required by the mobility concept is included with the methods used to achieve these limits. A discussion of field operating experience after some 12,000 hr of operation is included with charts and graphs showing performance parameters of speed, power, and temperature.
