While visiting a state-owned petroleum plant where Atlas Copco Specialty Rental Mexico was providing nitrogen generators, one of our customer’s engineers discovered the benefits of on-site nitrogen generation and realized that it could be harnessed to make the pre-commissioning new builds more efficient. He called Atlas Copco Rental to see how we could help.
Our team arranged for a group of their decision-makers to visit an Atlas Copco Rental facility in Monterrey, where they could view and test our compressors and nitrogen generators. After a simple capability’s demonstration, they were convinced that on-site nitrogen generation would not only be a cheaper and more effective solution for their new tank farms, but also a safer alternative. With a single solution and just one equipment delivery, they could produce all the nitrogen they needed without having to worry about tank volumes or delivery times.
In an initial test run to evaluate the feasibility of on-site nitrogen generation for pre-commissioning new-build facility, they arranged for a one-month Atlas Copco equipment rental that included a PNS 1250 air compressor and an NGM1100 nitrogen generator. Subsequently, the customer extended the rental for an additional two months as the project advanced. Moving forward, the customer plans to eliminate the use of cryogenic nitrogen in its future pre-commissioning projects, opting to go the more efficient on-site nitrogen generation route instead.
When they needed reliable equipment and experience-driven expertise to tackle a critical, safety-related issue, we delivered a solution that cut their costs and prevented facility downtime.
