International Recognition - Persian Gulf Offshore Qatar
The challenge to the customer
Maersk, the operators of the Al Shaheen oil field, off the shore
of Qatar, required power for two satellite platforms while the main
process and utility platform was being commissioned.
Based on Aggreko's previous relationship with Maersk in Europe,
the platform operators contacted Aggreko to provide them with the
power they needed.
The total power installed was 5.4 MW at 6.6kV. The generators
were all equipped with fire and gas panels, CO2 systems and neutral
earthing resistors. And, to ensure the smooth operation and/or
maintenance of the equipment, Aggreko engineers were based
permanently on the platform for the duration of the project.
The benefits to the customer
Since Aggreko’s products comply with strict design
specifications, they were awarded the Bureau Veritas
International’s endorsement for this project.
