Hi one and all
Some here may have attended a meeting organised by the IMechE in April 2009 in Swindon on the subject of DGC given by Norman Liley of CORAC. It's now time for an update, and Dr. Adrian Alford CEng MIMechE, Chief Technologist for CORAC will be giving a presentation in Swindon on November 13th. The synopsis is:
Title: Advanced High Speed Gas Compressors
CORAC has been developing small, oil-free, very high speed and high power density turbo compressors for raw gas duties since 2002. These can be deployed within the gas well up to 4km below ground or at the well-head either on land or on offshore platforms to both accelerate production and access otherwise unobtainable reserves. There are also applications in refrigeration systems, renewable energy and air compression. The mechanical and electrical technology employed is advanced and unique and has had a long development period. Dr Adrian Alford, the Chief Technologist for CORAC, will discuss the technical, business and regulatory challenges that have had to be confronted along the way, explain the current situation, and outline the plans for future development and marketing.
This is organised by the IMechE and so the emphasis is on the engineering but as you see from the synopsis, the wider business issues will be addressed. All are welcome and are invited to use the booking system here:
Refreshments are at 1830, lecture at 1900, plenty of parking and all free.
Plenty of scope for questions.
I hope to see some of you there - I shall be introducing the speaker
