Dresser-Rand completed two of the
largest orders ever placed for gas
turbine-powered equipment in the North
Sea. Statoil awarded the contracts to
Dresser-Rand on the basis of a very
competitive solution. Critical technical
features included: low weight, minimum
dimensions and superior arrangements
for inspection and maintenance. The first
contract placed by Statoil for the A
platform covered two 21 MW D-R gas
turbine generator sets and five D-R gas
turbine/compressor units for recompression,
pipeline and reinjection duties.

Based on Dresser-Rands satisfactory
performance on this first contract, the
award for the equipment on the T
platform was negotiated with Statoil.
This included one D-R gas turbine generator
set, two VFD motor-driven recompression
trains and three D-R gas turbine-driven com-
pressor sets for pipeline and CO
gas strip-
ping and reinjection in the North Sea. The
equipment was delivered on schedule
and to the satisfaction of the client.

VECTRA 40G power turbine.
Dresser-Rand has completed one of
the largest orders ever placed for its
gas turbines, as six VECTRA 40G power
turbines (plus one spare) will supply
power and compression to a Nigerian
FPSO (floating production, storage and
offloading) vessel. Located offshore
Nigeria, it is the largest FPSO project in the
world, giving D-R a unique position in this
expanding market.
Each of the power turbines was packaged
at Dresser-Rands plant in Drammen,
Norway. Three of the gas turbine packages
drive 25 MW electrical generators, and
were load tested in Norway. The other
three gas turbines drive triple casing
gas re-injection compressor trains with a
discharge pressure of 7,200 PSI (490 bars),
and one of these trains was tested at full
load and full pressure on D-Rs test stand
in Le Havre, France.

For many telecommunication centers,
airports and hospitals, standby power is
mandatory. For banks, computer centers,
oil platforms, and many others, protection
against blackouts is also necessary. These
types of clients require maximum reliability
with the absolute minimum of disturbance
to their normal businesses.
With 99.3 percent start reliability*, full-load
throw-on capacity and minimal maintenance
requirements, Dresser-Rands KG2 gas tur-
bine is ideal for stand-by and continuous
power supply onshore and offshore. The
KG2 generator set has been specifically
designed to meet requirements for power
from 1 MW to 10 MW (single and multiple
units). More than 900 units have been
delivered for standby, industrial, and oil and
gas applications worldwide.
In addition to the KG2, we can offer any
other gas turbines in D-Rs product range
for standby and peaking duty up to 50 MW.
D-R is committed to addressing critical
environmental concerns while continuing
to improve operational efficiencies.
Dresser-Rands emission control system for
and CO includes DLE, water injection
and steam injection. For example, our DLE
solutions for the VECTRA 40G can reduce
emissions by approximately 80 percent.
Effective noise abatement systems are also
a priority.
Most environmental regulations require
that all continuous-duty units be low-NO

installations, of which the preferred
method is DLE. Even when we produce
non-DLE packages, we build with DLE
retrofit in mind.
At Dresser-Rand, our concept of service
goes far beyond supplying spare parts
and providing on-site assistance. D-R
aims to be our clients partner for gas
turbine solutions, starting with assistance
at the conceptual design stage and
providing support throughout the life of
the equipment. D-R packages are carefully
designed to save time and money, and
to maximize availability.
For example, consider our lightweight,
three-point mount, patented torque-tube
baseplate design specifically for offshore
use. All auxiliary system modules are
conveniently located below the main deck
on either side of the torque tube, where
they are readily available to the operator.
This means it is not necessary to enter
the gas turbine acoustic enclosure for
preventive maintenance. Dresser-Rands
emphasis is on user-friendly solutions to
help clients achieve maximum availability
and minimum life cycle cost for their
rotating equipment.

The Huldra Platform Train is the first
LM2500 gas turbine-driven combined
compressor (DATUM D08R6S) and genera-
tor train. A special four-shaft gearbox with
two output shafts was designed to accom-
modate a compressor and generator operat-
ing at different speeds. A full-load test was
conducted at the Dresser-Rand Le Havre
facility to test this special shaft line. The
test proved the train could operate suc-
cessfully over the full range of combined
compressor and generator loads (max load
compressor = 10.6 MW and max load
generator = 9 MW).
In addition to this unique arrangement,
the Huldra platform may be unmanned.
The client wanted to test as much of the
contract equipment as possible in the
Dresser-Rand factory. Therefore, over a
period of three months the following
equipment was assembled and tested:
LM2500 DLE package, including DLE
mapping, contract gas turbine enclosure,
air inlet, and exhaust systems
