Emergency restarting of a Gulf of Mexico platform
The challenge to the customer
When a major oil company platform in the Gulf of Mexico needed
immediate temporary power, they turned to Aggreko. Due to technical
difficulties, the on-board generators were shut down leaving the
platform without power and a possible expensive production
In just two days, Aggreko had eight 800kW, 480V generators on
site. Less than two days later, the generators were powering the
platform. As this solution proved economical, the company converted
the generators to a long-term lease.
The benefits to the customer
“This was our first experience with Aggreko. They performed so
well, we won’t hesitate to use them again. We are very impressed,”
said the project's supervising engineer.
