Rolls-Royce Supplies FPU Gen-Sets
Four Rolls-Royce RB211-powered generating sets have been ordered by Charter Development LLC-CDC for installation in the P-53 Floating Production Unit (FPU) in Brazil. This unit will be chartered to Petrobras, the Brazilian national oil company, and located offshore Brazil and together with a Long Term Service Agreement (LTSA) the total value of the contract is more than US$71 million.
The four dual fuel RB211 units are for the P-53 Marlin Leste FPU in the Marlim Sul field off the coast of Rio de Janeiro in the Campos Basin. The order is for two modules, each containing two RB211 6562 dual fuel power generating sets with waste heat recovery systems. The modules will provide electrical power for the FPU, which will eventually connect to 27 different wellheads, 18 producing oil and gas and nine for water injection needed to keep pressure in the reservoir.
Rolls-Royce has received orders for 23 RB211 gas turbine generator sets for Petrobras offshore projects, totalling over US$280 million, over the past four and a half years. The sets are being packaged at the Rolls-Royce facility in Liverpool, England.
