Power Module for FPSO Upgrade


Power Module for FPSO Upgrade

Wärtsilä Corporation has supplied a 5800 kW Power Module for installation on board the FPSO vessel "Berge Hus". The Module is powered by a Wärtsilä 18V32DF dual-fuel engine, which will burn gas produced at the vessel’s location. The Power Modules are ready-made units designed and built specifically for the offshore oil and gas industry. They meet all the requirements for the application in terms of safety, reliability, quick installation and rapid commissioning, as well as complying with all relevant regulations including classification requirements.

The Power Modules are designed and assembled by Wärtsilä as total packages complete with all necessary ancillaries and can be test run with natural gas or diesel fuel oil before delivery to the site. Wärtsilä supplies the Power Modules as an EPC contractor, including responsibility for transport, test running and commissioning of the plant. The ancillaries include such facilities as cooling heat exchangers, fuel handling system, starting air system, tanks, switchgear, electrical and control equipment, ducts for air intake and exhaust gases, ventilation system, exhaust silencer and stack.The Wärtsilä 32DF dual-fuel engine runs simultaneously on natural gas and diesel fuel oil. Natural gas is supplied at a low pressure to the engine and is taken directly from the oil/gas production. The engine is fully capable of switching over from gas to liquid fuel (marine diesel oil or gas oil) automatically should the gas supply be interrupted, while continuing to deliver full power.

The Power Module for the "Berge Hus" contains Wärtsilä 18V32DF dual-fuel engine with a maximum continuous output of 6030 kW at 720 rev/min. The complete unit measures 17.7 m long by 5.4 m wide and 6.0 m high, or 13 m including the exhaust stack. It weights 201 tonnes for transport and 225 tonnes when in operation with all supplies (fuel, water and lubricating oil). It has fire insulation to class A60, and a noise level of less than 85 dB(A) at 1 m.
