Peter Brotherhood Delivers Aker Turbines

Posted on March 17, 2008

Peter Brotherhood Ltd has delivered three 5 MW steam turbine driven generator sets to Aker Floating Production of Norway. They will be installed on the top deck of the Aker Smart 1 FPSO vessel to operate in the Indian Ocean and which will be maintained by Aker Borgestad Operations AS. Aker Smart 1 will be deployed in India's MA-field, 60 kilometres offshore from eastern India, which has water depths of 1,000 to 1,400 metres.

The operator of the field is Reliance Industries Ltd. Production start-up will take place in two phases: oil production is scheduled in the first half of 2008 and gas production towards the end of 2008. The three steam turbine driven generator sets each consist of a turbine, gearbox and generator, all mounted on a common bedplate which incorporates the oil system, and a separate water cooled condenser mounted directly below the turbine's exhaust.
