The electric motor-driven gas compressor packages include transformers and frequency converters for the drive system. The packages include complete three-point mounted baseplates, full enclosures for noise protection, and all auxiliary systems. String testing for the equipment will be conducted at the Dresser-Rand facility in Le Havre, France.
