A tailored solution

Built in North America. For North America.

The SGT-400 PL is a pipeline compressor package, in the 10MW - 15MW (13,000 to 20,000 HP) range, that’s designed to address the unique requirements of pipeline operators throughout North America. It’s easy to own and operate while providing market-leading efficiency and flexibility. We’ve built it for maximum availability over a wide range of conditions and formed an expert, nationwide support team to keep it that way.

Powerful technology

Experience the evolution: The SGT-400 gas turbine


At the heart of our PL package is the SGT-400 gas turbine. We’ve updated its design, leveraging best-in-class systems from across the Siemens turbine portfolio and tailoring its capabilities to the needs of the market. With lower emissions, increased efficiency and maximum robustness, it’s ideally suited to today’s midstream applications.


  • Twin-shaft design field proven over 20 years
  • Proven availability in excess of 98% over 10 years
  • Starts in dry low emissions (DLE) mode for increased efficiency and reduced carbon footprint
  • Low turn-down, emission-compliant operational flexibility
  • Black-start capability

A smarter package

Designed for how you operate

The SGT-400 PL is the most compact and factory-complete design in its class. We’ve made it that way to help streamline start-up and your daily operations.

  • Simple foundation, no stepped concrete
  • On-package controls
  • Improved manual access
  • Crane and forklift access

Fast, reliable support

A service organization committed to your success

You’re operations demand maximum uptime to be profitable. Our service organization is up to the challenge. We’re leveraging our 100-year history and extensive geographic coverage across North America to deliver unparalleled support — we have more technicians, engineers, core engines and parts near you that are ready at a moment’s notice.


Smart services

Step into the future today. The PL package design supports digital services such as remote monitoring and control. Our comprehensive portfolio of services also includes long-term programs (LTP), overhaul service, field service, spare parts, service exchange, modernization and upgrades. We’ve also built a complete training center in Houston to turn your employees into experts.


Less maintenance, more productivity

We like to increase uptime by reducing the need for maintenance. The SGT-400 core engine is designed to run longer — four years or 32,000 hours of operation between overhauls and eight years or 64,000 hours before its first major outage. The PL package also supports condition-based maintenance as part of a LTP.


The complete package

Siemens is uniquely suited to provide more consolidated services to more of your operations. The SGT-400 PL package standardizes our turbine, compressor and controls for easier service. We can also expand your program to include Siemens electrical medium- and high-voltage equipment and controls — streamlining the management of your service program and eliminating finger-pointing on site.
