Compressor stations are critically important to the transportation of natural gas over long distances. MAN Diesel & Turbo offers both conventional pipeline compressors (RV) as well as hermetically sealed compact compressors with integrated high-speed motor and magnetic bearings (MOPICO®) to fulfill the specific requirements in pipeline compressor stations.

MAN Pipeline Compressor Gastransport

The first MAN Diesel & Turbo pipeline compressor was supplied more than 40 years ago. Today, our RV pipeline compressors have proven their availability and reliability through millions of operating hours worldwide. Continuous product developments, tailored design features and a broad operating range are only a few examples of our distinguished compressor characteristics.
