Main HVAC System

1.4.1

Introduction
The Main HVAC System for the accommodation block and machinery spaces of the
Bonga FPSO is designed to maintain a relative humidity and temperature as follows:

Summer

Outside Temperature 35C Relative Humidity 85%

Inside Temperature 23C Relative Humidity 50%

Winter

Outside Temperature 20C Relative Humidity 70%

Inside Temperature 21C Relative Humidity 65%

The spaces are maintained by the HVAC System controls at a positive pressure of
50Pa relative to the outside atmospheric pressure. This is achieved by manually
adjusting the exhaust dampers during commissioning of the main HVAC System
equipment, and also by modulating the return air dampers or pressure control
dampers in the distribution ducting during service.
The air conditioning for the accommodation block and machinery spaces is divided
into three areas.

Main accommodation, supplied by AHUs A-1702A and A-1702B

Central Equipment Room (CER), Central Control Room (CCR), data


telecommunications room and Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) space,
supplied by AHU A-1703

Flow Summaries
Chilled Water System
The two 100% duty/standby Chilled Water Units A-1704A and B are located in the
machinery spaces 3rd Deck level to serve the AHUs for the main HVAC System.
The chillers are coupled to two 100% duty/standby Chilled Water Pumps
P-1703A and B located on the 3rd Deck. These provide circulation of chilled water
through the evaporators and common recirculation pipework. Cooling medium for
the chillers is provided from the low-temperature Cooling Freshwater System, which
is controlled independently from the HVAC System.
Chilled water is circulated through the cooling coils of the four main AHUs, each of
which is fitted with a three-way temperature control valve. These temperature
control valves allow water to pass through or bypass the respective AHU as
necessary to maintain the desired temperature/humidity conditions of the supply air.
Chilled water is also supplied to the respective PAC.
AHUs A-1702A and A-1702B
AHUs A-1702A and A-1702B, located in the A Deck air handling room, are 100%
duty/standby units, with two supply fans each which provide pre-conditioned fresh
air from the air inlet on the aft end of A Deck to the accommodation deck areas.
The system is designed to provide a mixture of fresh and recirculated air. Fresh air
is taken from a common riser shared with Air Handling Unit A-1703.
Volume control dampers are provided on the return and fresh air inlets to ensure
that the correct air ratio enters the various AHUs. The mixed airflow then passes
through a bank of panel filters prior to being cooled with chilled water.

Conditioned air is discharged from the AHU fans to the supply plenum and is
transferred to the deck areas by a number of duct branches. From the duct
branches, the air enters the individual spaces through a number of constant-volume
units, variable-volume units and cabin units complete with discharge grilles.
Where the air boxes are the variable-volume-type they are controlled by a local
thermostat in the space, this drives the inlet damper closed in response to the space
temperature falling below the predetermined set point.
The cabin units have the facility to have their airflow adjusted by a lever on the
diffuser to best suit the needs of the individual occupants. This facility is not
provided on the larger constant-volume units and variable-volume boxes.
Recycled air from the accommodation deck levels is returned to the AHUs through a
number of return air grilles on each deck. Return air passes through the ducting and
main riser and enters the plant room by way of a large mesh grille prior to entering
the mixing chamber section of the AHUs.
CER, CCR, PABX and UPS Air Handling Unit (AHU) A-1703
Air Handling Unit A-1703, which is located in the A Deck air handling room, is a
100% duty unit, with a single fan, providing cooled fresh air from the fresh air inlet
on the aft end of A Deck to the CER, CCR, PABX and UPS areas.
The system is designed to provide a mixture of fresh and recirculated air. The fresh
air is taken from a common riser, which is shared with Air Handling Units A-1702A/B
and A-1703. Volume control dampers are provided on the return and outside air inlet

TOPSIDES HVAC SYSTEMS

2.1

Introduction
The topsides HVAC System consists of the following systems:

Power Module HVAC System

Starboard Subsea HVAC System

Compressor Control HVAC System

Methanol and Chemical Cofferdam HVAC System

Port Process Module Water Laboratory HVAC System

The enclosed areas of the topsides modules are equipped with HVAC Systems to
maintain design conditions and ventilation rates.
Each enclosure has two dedicated air conditioning units, with 100% redundancy,
positioned close to or within the enclosed area.
The HVAC plants consist of louvred inlets, filter/coalescer, DX-type cooling coil,
air-cooled condenser, supply fan and dampers. The systems are equipped with local
control panels and field mounted instruments and controls.
All systems have automatically operated shut-off dampers on air inlets and exhausts
for isolation purposes.
Supply system design is based on approximately 80% recirculation air and the air
inlets are located to minimise wind effect wherever possible.
In positively-pressurised areas, the air is exhausted to atmosphere by forced
draught through pressure relief dampers. These pressure relief dampers are used to
control the pressure of the enclosed area.
2.1.1

Battery Rooms
Battery rooms are positively pressurised by ventilation to ensure that there is no
ingress of hazardous gasses from outside whilst the ventilation system is
operational.
Positive room pressurisation is maintained by exhausting air from the room to
atmosphere via pressure relief dampers. These pressure relief dampers are used to
control the pressure of the room.
Gas-tight dampers are installed on the air inlet and exhaust on the HVAC System.
These are controlled by the HVAC control panel, which interfaces with the
Emergency Support System (ESS), and are closed following confirmed gas
detection at the inlet dampers.
Battery rooms are equipped with duty and standby HVAC units to maintain room
conditions. The HVAC Systems are supported by essential and emergency
generators for continued operation in the event of a power failure.
Dedicated local control panels located in the adjacent control/switch room control
the battery rooms HVAC Systems.

Refrigeration Systems
Each AHU is equipped with a dedicated refrigeration system, to cool the supply air.
The following description is for the Power Module Main Switchroom Air Handling
Unit A-1770A. The description for all other air handling units is identical, using the
correcponding tag numbers.
Refer to Part 1 Section 3 Figure 3.2 for clarity when following the text.
Refrigerant gas is supplied from the discharge of Refrigerant Compressor
A-1770A-K-02 to Condenser Coil A-1770A-HAC-01, which is cooled by the four
Condenser Fans A-1770A-F-01/A to1770A-F-04 condensing the refrigerant gas to
a liquid.
The liquid refrigerant passes from the condenser to a refrigerant receiver for
storage. From the receiver the liquid passes through a drier and a sight glass to
Solenoid Valve 17-XY-882.
This valve, which operates from LCP-1770, controls the flow of liquid refrigerant
to Thermo Expansion Valves 17-TCV-880A/B. The thermo expansion valves
control the expansion rate of liquid to gas in the evaporator (Cooling Coil
A-1770A-HCC-01), thereby controlling the temperature of the mixed air in the air
handling unit.
From the evaporator, the refrigerant gas passes through a suction filter to the
suction of Refrigerant Compressor A-1770A-K-02, where it is compressed. The hot
compressed gas passes a discharge filter and a check valve to the air-cooled
condenser once more to complete the cycle.
Down stream of the compressor discharge is an offtake for the hot gas injection
valve. This valve recycles hot discharge gas downstream of the thermo expansion
valve to maintain the system integrity and flow during minimum flow conditions.

The forward space ventilation system is fitted with pneumatic fire dampers at those
points where ducting penetrates fire-rated walls or decks. These fire dampers have
a rating at least equal to the barrier that they are designed to protect so as to
maintain the integrity of the space.
The fire dampers are controlled via a signal from one or more of the following
sources:

Automatic closure by the PSCS

Manual local operation of the solenoid valve

Automatic failsafe closure by the melting of a fusible link

Air pressure is supplied to the fire dampers, which maintains them in the open
position. The air supply passes through a solenoid valve, air trigger and
quick-exhaust valve to the actuator for the damper, which at 4barg overcomes the
return-spring force and at 5barg opens the damper.
When fully open, an operator arm on the actuator shaft operates the limit switch for
open indication at the DCS. Local indication is also provided. If the fusible link melts
at 70C, the quick-exhaust valve opens a larger vent to release the air pressure and
the damper closes within 0.5 to 2 seconds.

1.11

ESS and SSDS Interface


The ESS will give group or total shutdown commands to the forward HVAC panel
depending on the fire and gas conditions.
The SSDS will receive the damper closed feedback signals.

1.12

Safeguarding
Fire and gas detectors continuously monitor the outside air intakes. The normal
arrangement is three smoke detectors and two Infrared (IR) gas detectors, operating
on a Two-out-of-three (2oo3) and Two-out-of-two (2oo2) voting system respectively.
Both sets of smoke and gas detectors interface with the DCS. In addition,
the forward airlock gives alarm indication on the DCS from a single smoke detector
and IR gas detector located in the airlock.
Confirmed smoke or 60% Lower Explosive Limit (LEL) gas at the intakes results in
the automatic closure of the fire dampers and stoppage of the forward space supply
fan. These actions are essential to minimise the ingress of smoke or potentially
explosive/toxic gas mixtures into the Temporary Refuge (TR) room.
Interface between the fire and gas control panel and HVAC control panel operates
on a failsafe principle, ie HVAC supply and exhaust fan sets are shut down and fire
dampers closed on loss of the control signal, loss of signal to the fire dampers or
loss of back-up air supplies from the air accumulator vessel initiate damper closure.
In addition, the fire dampers can also be closed manually.

Operation and Control


Machinery Spaces
The machinery spaces have a separate ventilation system, independent of the DCS.
Fans in the machinery spaces are controlled by the SSDS and operate as single
units, either non-reversible or reversible. The operator can start and stop each fan
from the CCR.
All fans have a process interlock with associated fire dampers and/or changeover
flaps, eg machinery space port supply fan K-1731A may only run if Fire Dampers
17-FD-151, 17-FD-255 and 17-FD-256 are open.
If any fire damper is not open, the fan is stopped by the SSDS and prevented from
starting.
The fire dampers will be controlled from the ESS and actions will be shown on
the Hull Cause and Effect BON-SHI-008-E-00030. There is no control from the
CCR HMI.
The changeover flaps will be set from the HMI according to which fan is to be
started. Indication of the position of the changeover flaps will be on the HVAC
displays.
The DCS contains all the necessary operator interface controls and logic to control,
monitor and provide annunciation for the main equipment included in the machinery
spaces forced ventilation system.

Fire dampers are opened by control air pressure, via a solenoid valve, and are
designed to fail safe to the closed position.
The ESS shuts all dampers, either individually or in groups, by de-energising the
relevant solenoid valve, which vents the air pressure.
In the event of fire, the supply and exhaust ducts for the engine room can be closed
by remotely operated pneumatic fire dampers.
DCS logic is provided for selecting duty/standby function for the machinery space
supply fans, aft firepump supply fans and IGG room supply fans.
The machinery spaces forced ventilation system is totally shut down by the FPSO

fan, the changeover damper is closed.
2.16.5

Pneumatic Fire Dampers


The machinery spaces HVAC System is fitted with pneumatic fire dampers at points
where ducting penetrates fire rated walls or decks.
These fire dampers have a rating of at least equal to the barrier that they are
designed to protect so as to maintain the integrity of the space.
The fire dampers are controlled via a signal from one or more of the following
sources:

Automatic closure by the ESS

Manual local operation of the solenoid valve

Automatic failsafe closure by the melting of a fusible link

Air pressure is supplied to the fire dampers, which maintains them in the open
position. The air supply passes through a solenoid valve, air trigger and
quick-exhaust valve to the actuator for the damper, which overcomes the return
spring force at 4barg and opens the damper at 5barg.

When fully open, an operator arm on the actuator operates the limit switch for open
indication at the DCS. Local indication is also provided.
If the fusible link melts at 68C, the quick exhaust valve opens a larger vent to
release the air pressure and the damper closes within 0.5 to 2 seconds.
2.16.6

Changeover Dampers
Aft Firepump Supply Fans K-1733A/B and K-1733C/D are fitted with automatic
Changeover Dampers Z-1710A/1710B and Z-1710C/1710D respectively.
These changeover dampers open and close automatically on start-up and shutdown
of the duty/standby machinery space and firepump supply fans by the operation of
the solenoid valves.

2.17

ESS and SSDS Interface


The machinery vent fans and the fire dampers are fully controlled from SSDS.
The required fans can be manually started from the SSDS workstation.
These fans can also be started locally. Upon activation the Local start request
signal will be received by SSDS and SSDS will start the fan.
During normal operation, all machinery fire dampers are controlled from SSDS and
their feedback is also wired to SSDS.
All machinery ventilation fans and fire dampers are provided with ESS shutdown
interlocks.
The fire dampers are grouped and each group is provided with a common solenoid
valve, which provides the air supply. On de-energising this solenoid valve by ESS,
the group dampers will be shut down.

2.18

Safeguarding
The air from the machinery spaces fans, ie two sets of non-reversible Supply Fans
K-1731A/B and two sets of reversible Supply Fans K-1732A/B, is continuously
monitored by fire and gas detectors installed at the air intakes duct from B Deck.
The normal arrangement is three smoke detectors and two IR gas detectors,
operating on a 2oo3 and 2oo2 voting system respectively. Both sets of smoke and
gas detectors interface with the DCS.
Confirmed smoke or 60% LEL gas at the intakes results in the automatic closure of
the fire dampers and stopping of the HVAC fans. These actions are essential to
minimise the ingress of smoke or potentially explosive/toxic gas mixtures into the
machinery spaces.
Both machinery space and aft firepump supply fan sets are shut down and fire
dampers close on loss of control signal. Loss of signal to the dampers or loss of
backup air supplies from the air accumulator vessel, keeping them open, initiate
damper closure. In addition, the fire dampers can also be closed manually.

Common Air Intake


The air handling unit common air intake from B Deck aft is fitted with a panel filter
coalescer positioned next to Fire Damper 17-FD-127 on the intake.

3.2.1

Filter Coalescer
The filter consists of a 50mm thick media pad, formed into a series of vees,
to remove water, salt and any airborne particles from the incoming airflow. This is
essential as the main HVAC System is for the accommodation module,
LV switchboard room and CCR containing electronic and electrical equipment.
The filter coalescer is cleaned by removing the dirty filter and rinsing with water.
Alternatively the filter can be replaced with a new disposable filter.
Most of the water entering the main HVAC System air intake at the mushroom vent
is removed via a drain valve located at the bottom of the vent. However, the filter
coalescer is provided with a small drain fitted to remove any remaining freewater
from the incoming airflow.

Operation and Control


Owing to the criticality and high importance attached to the main HVAC Systems,
the systems have been fitted with various controls, alarms and indicators to ensure
safe and efficient operation at all times.
The DCS contains all the necessary operator interface controls and the required
logic to control, monitor and provide annunciation for the equipment included in the
main HVAC Systems, including the selection of the duty/standby AHUs, supply and
exhaust fans and control of the fire dampers.
The main HVAC System is totally shut down by the Bonga FPSO Fire and Gas
System or ESS if necessary, in the event of an emergency. Once stopped, all main
HVAC System equipment is prohibited from starting or opening until all inhibits have
been removed from the Fire and Gas System or ESS.

3.6.3

Accommodation HVAC System Control


The control of all HVAC Systems is carried out by a dual redundant PLC from the
HVAC unit control panel located in the CER. On receipt of a start request from the
DCS communications link, the PLC ensures that the chilled water system is started
and operating, opens the necessary fire dampers and starts the relevant AHU.
The link permits the operator to monitor and supervise the HVAC System, including
accommodation temperature set points, from the DCS in the CCR. However, the
HVAC PLC carries out all the control functions.
The HVAC Unit Control Panel (UCP) also has a graphic display located on the front
of the control panel which allows a view of the equipment status and performs duty
selection and start/stop functions.
The HVAC control panel controls and monitors the following items of equipment:

Chiller and associated valves

Chilled water pumps and associated valves

Air handling units

Shut-off dampers

Ventilation and exhaust fans

Fire dampers with overriding control from the ESS

Each damper can be closed manually and electrically from the HVAC control panel
in the CER or by the ESS.
If the HVAC air supply fails due to a damper closing or a supply fan stopping,
the control panel will stop the relevant exhaust fans.
There is a serial data link between the DCS and the HVAC UCP in the CER which
indicates and controls the status, alarms, airflow, temperatures and set points for the
following:

Aft HVAC System

Chilled water units

Air handling units

ESS Interface
The ESS will give a group shutdown of the fire dampers to HVAC control PLC based
on fire and gas conditions. However, the individual fire damper closed feedback
signals are hardwired to SSDS for monitoring.
All air handling units, chilled water units and ventilation fans hardwired status
feedback such as Running, Local Isolation are provided to the SSDS.
All AHUs, chilled water units and the ventilation fans are provided with individual
ESS shutdown interlocks.
In the event of gas detection in the inlets to AHUs, the ESS will shut down all HVAC
Systems. Package air conditioning units, where provided, will be started locally.
Fire dampers are opened by control air pressure, via a solenoid valve, and are
designed to fail-safe to the closed condition. The ESS system shuts all dampers,
either individually or in groups, by de-energising the relevant solenoid valve which
vents the pressure. Each fire damper or group of dampers can also be closed
locally, by venting the air via a manual valve. The manual vent valve must be closed
before the remote signal can re-open the damper.
Fire and Gas Cause and Effect diagrams indicate the ESS shutdown causes the
shutdown of the respective fire damper groups. In case of galley CO2 release
demand input, the ESS will close the galley hood dampers.

Safeguarding
Fire and gas detectors installed at the ducted air intakes on A and C Decks
continuously monitor the air for the main HVAC System. The normal arrangement is
three smoke detectors and two IR gas detectors, operating on a 2oo3 and 2oo2
voting system respectively. Both sets of smoke and gas detectors interface with
the DCS.
If the main HVAC air supply fails due either to a damper closing or fan stopping,
the HVAC System PLC logic stops the relevant exhaust fans. In the event
of confirmed smoke at the air intakes to the AHUs, the DCS activates full air
recirculation to the CCR and CER, but stops all air circulation to the remaining areas
of the FPSO.
Confirmed 60% LEL gas at the air intakes results in the automatic closure of the fire
dampers and stoppage of the HVAC fans. These actions are essential to minimise
the ingress of smoke or potentially explosive/toxic gas mixtures into the
accommodation, stores and control room areas.
The fire dampers can also be closed manually. The local fire damper panel located
at each deck level in the accommodation includes a manual valve which closes all
dampers on that deck level.

Attenuator design provides minimum resistance to the airflow and produces the
minimum differential pressure across the attenuator.
External casing construction is in 1.5mm galvanised sheet steel, with acoustic
material held in place by a 1mm perforated galvanised steel sheet.
The acoustic material is 40/45kg/m3 mineral wool held in place by 3mm weld pins and
washers. A close-weave Melinex glass cloth is fitted between the mineral wool and
the perforated sheet, which prevents mineral wool fibres passing into the air stream.
Mineral wool and Melinex glass cloth are both fire retardant to BS 476 Part 4 and 7.
The mineral wool is non-combustible, non-hygroscopic, odour free, and rot, damp
and vermin proof, and able to withstand sagging, erosion and disintegration.

The shut-off damper is of a rectangular multi-blade construction housed in a 316


S11 stainless steel framework to ensure that the blades are maintained in proper
alignment, thus preventing chattering and binding.
Doubleskin aerofoil section blades of 1.5mm 316 S11 stainless steel are installed.
Leakage through the damper in the closed position is minimised by sprung stainless
steel side seals and top and bottom blade angle stops. This ensures that leakage
through a closed damper is less than 0.1m3 per second per m2 of damper face area
at a differential pressure of 2000N/m2.
A blade position indicator enables a visual check of the status of the damper.

Damper opening is controlled by counterbalance weights, which limit the opening of
the blades against a required airflow or pressure. Adjustment is achieved by adding
or removing counterweights for the required airflow or room pressure.
Refer to Figure 3.1 which details power module main switchroom AHU A-1770A.
The relevant tag numbers for AHUs A-1770A/B are detailed Table 3.2.

Doubleskin aerofoil section blades of 1.5mm 316 S11 stainless steel, with opposing
action, are installed.
Leakage through the damper in the closed position is minimised by sprung stainless
steel side seals and top and bottom blade angle stops. This ensures that leakage
through a closed damper is less than 0.1m3 per second per m2 of damper face area
at a differential pressure of 2000N/m2.
A blade position indicator enables a visual check of the status of the damper.

following:

Weather louvre

Primary stage coalescing panel filters

Second stage double-pass inertial vane separator

The unit is constructed in stainless steel and equipped with a drainage seal loop to
the open drains.
The weather louvre casing is constructed in 3mm stainless steel and the louvres are
inclined at 45. A 20mm stainless steel bird mesh is installed on the air inlet.
The filter/coalescer first stage is a bank of medium-efficiency pleated panel filters,
600mm x 600mm, mounted in a stainless steel frame. The filtration media is rot
proof, non-hygroscopic, inorganic and incapable of migration to the air stream and
has a filtering efficiency of EU4 86% dust arrestance to BS-6540: 1985.
Blades of 1.5mm stainless steel are installed in the inertial vane separator, and
separation is by double-deflection inertial water separation. Drains from the
separators pass to the open drain system through a seal loop.
The combined filter/coalescer provides salt elimination of 99% at 6 microns
(0.05ppm) with 3.6ppm input.
Incorporated in the filter/coalescer housing are stainless steel slides, which are for
the installation of high-efficiency filters. These are installed during the seasonal
effects of the Harmattan Winds, which carry sand particles into the intakes.
The filters are manufactured from a filter media free of glass fibres. The filter media
and frame are constructed in polypropylene, which has progressive depth filtration,
is water repellent, and with anti-microbial properties.

steel side seals and top and bottom blade angle stops. This ensures that leakage
through a closed damper is less than 0.1m3 per second per m2 of damper face area
at a differential pressure of 2000N/m2.
A blade position indicator enables a visual check of the status of the damper.

The acoustic material is 40/45kg/m3 mineral wool held in place by 3mm weld pins
and washers. A close-weave Melinex glass cloth is fitted between the mineral wool
and the perforated sheet, which prevents mineral wool fibres passing into the air
stream.
Mineral wool and Melinex glass cloth are both fire retardant to BS 476 Part 4 and 7.
The mineral wool is non-combustible, non-hygroscopic, odour free, and rot, damp
and vermin proof, and able to withstand sagging, erosion and disintegration.

A Frascold V-32-93 semi-hermetic-type refrigerant compressor supplies the


evaporator section. The crankshaft is constructed in cast steel and moves
lightweight aluminium con rods and pistons in steel cylinders.
Positive lubrication is provided to all bearing surfaces and carbon shaft seal by a
non-directional gear pump.
The compressor is equipped with a suction strainer, oil sight glass, oil pressure
equalisation and internal pressure relief.
Each compressor is designed to provide 100% of the required cooling capacity of
the air handling unit, inclusive of sensible and latent heat and is located on top of the
air handling unit.
Condenser fans are 700mm diameter four-bladed hub-type, manufactured in

The shut-off damper is of a rectangular multi-blade construction housed in a 316


S11 stainless steel framework to ensure that the blades are maintained in proper
alignment, thus preventing chattering and binding.
Doubleskin aerofoil section blades of 1.5mm 316 S11 stainless steel, with opposing
action, are installed.
Leakage through the damper in the closed position is minimised by sprung stainless
steel side seals and top and bottom blade angle stops. This ensures that leakage
through a closed damper is less than 0.1m3 per second per m2 of damper face area
at a differential pressure of 2000N/m2.
A blade position indicator enables a visual check of the status of the damper.

The relief damper is a rectangular multi-blade construction housed in a 316 S11


stainless steel framework to ensure that the blades are maintained in proper
alignment, thus preventing chattering and binding.
Doubleskin aerofoil section blades of 1.0mm 316 S11 stainless steel, with opposing
action, are installed.
Damper opening is controlled by counterbalance weights, which limit the opening of
the blades against a required airflow or pressure. Adjustment is achieved by adding
or removing counterweights for the required airflow or room pressure.

Attenuator design provides minimum resistance to the airflow and produces the
minimum differential pressure across the attenuator.
External casing construction is of 1.5mm galvanised sheet steel, with acoustic
material held in place by a 1mm perforated galvanised steel sheet.
The acoustic material is 40/45kg/m3 mineral wool held in place by 3mm weld pins
and washers. A close-weave Melinex glass cloth is fitted between the mineral wool
and the perforated sheet, which prevents mineral wool fibres passing into the air
stream.
Mineral wool and Melinex glass cloth are both fire retardant to BS 476 Part 4 and 7.
The mineral wool is non-combustible, non-hygroscopic, odour free and rot, and
damp and vermin proof and is able to withstand sagging, erosion and disintegration.

A Frascold Z-40-126 semi-hermetic-type refrigerant compressor supplies the


evaporator section. The crankshaft is constructed in cast steel and moves
lightweight aluminium con rods and pistons in steel cylinders.
Positive lubrication is provided to all bearing surfaces and carbon shaft seal by a
non-directional gear pump.
The compressor is equipped with a suction strainer, oil sight glass, oil pressure
equalisation and internal pressure relief.
Each compressor is designed to provide 100% of the required cooling capacity,
inclusive of sensible and latent heat, of the air handling unit and is located on top of
the air handling unit.
The condenser fans are 700mm diameter four-bladed hub-type manufactured in
lightweight glass-fibre reinforced plastic. Each fan blade is non-sparking and directly
mounted to the condenser fan motor.
The air-cooling coils are horizontal refrigerant condensers manufactured from
copper tubes with aluminium fins, expanded on to galvanised steel end plates.
A lacquer coating on the aluminium fins provides additional corrosion protection.
Condenser discharge pipework is insulated with Class 0 Armaflex pipe insulation for
personnel protection.

Filter/Coalescer HCF-1786A is a three-stage unit comprising a weather louvre,
primary/stage coalescing bag filters and a second stage double-pass inertial vane
separator. The combined unit is constructed in stainless steel and is equipped with a
drainage seal loop to the open drains.
The weather louvre casing is constructed in 3mm stainless steel and the louvres are
inclined at 45. A 20mm stainless steel bird mesh is installed on the air inlet.
The first stage of the filter/coalescer unit is a bank of medium-efficiency pleated bag
filters 600mm x 720mm x 300mm, mounted in a stainless steel frame. Filtration
media in the unit is rot-proof, non-hygroscopic, inorganic and incapable of migration
to the air stream and has a filtering efficiency of EU4 86% dust arrestance to
BS-6540: 1985.
The inertial vane separator contains 1.5mm stainless steel blades and the method of
operation is double-deflection inertial water separation. Drains from the separators
pass to the open drain system via a seal loop.
The combined filter/coalescer provides salt elimination of 99% at 6 microns,
0.05ppm with 3.6ppm input NTG std 30-knot aerosol.
Incorporated within the filter/coalescer housing are stainless steel slides, which are
for high-efficiency filters. These will be installed during the seasonal effects of the
Harmattan Winds, which carry sand particles into the intakes.
The filters are manufactured from a filter media free of glass fibres. The filter media
and frame are constructed in polypropylene, which has progressive depth filtration,
water repellent and with anti-microbial properties.
The minimum efficiency of the filter is F8, >95% at 6 micron when tested to
ASHRAE Standard 52.2.P and the corresponding filter classes according to DIN EN
779 (EU8). At 1 micron, the filter has an average efficiency of 97%.

The shut-off damper is of a rectangular multi-blade construction housed in a 316


S11 stainless steel framework to ensure that the blades are maintained in proper
alignment, thus preventing chattering and binding.
Doubleskin aerofoil section blades of 1.5mm 316 S11 stainless steel, with opposing
action, are installed.
Leakage through the damper in the closed position is minimised by sprung stainless
steel side seals and top and bottom blade angle stops. This ensures that leakage
through a closed damper is less than 0.1m3 per second per m2 of damper face area
at a differential pressure of 2000N/m2.
A blade position indicator enables a visual check of the status of the damper.

CONTROL AND INSTRUMENTATION

3.1

Air Conditioning System Operation

3.1.1

Thermodynamic Principle
Bonga topside module HVAC installations use a common operating philosophy and
principle.
Mechanical cooling is provided to each air conditioned area by a conventional
refrigerant vapour compression, condensing and vaporisation circuit.
The refrigerant is used as a heat transfer medium, absorbing heat from the air
conditioned indoor area and exhausting the heat to atmosphere.

3.1.2

Installation Operation
Maximum system availability and the ability to carry out off-line maintenance are
achieved by 100% redundancy with two identical air handling units in each air
conditioned area. Manual or automatic changeover determines operational and
standby units.
The supply fan in the duty air handling unit operates continuously at a constant
speed and air flowrate regardless of temperature.
All motors are powered from the motor control centre. Some motors, for example the
supply fan motor, operate continuously whilst others such as the refrigeration
compressor and air-cooled condenser fans are load dependent and cycle on
demand.
The cooling is controlled by a duct-mounted temperature sensor, which compares
the supply air temperature to the thermostat set point. At the preset temperature,
the refrigeration compressor and condenser fans are energised.
Initially the compressor starts under no load in bypass mode via a bypass solenoid
valve. After a few seconds, the solenoid valve is de-energised and closes,
circulating refrigerant around the vapour compression circuit to cool the supply air.
Cooling load on the coil is controlled by an externally equalised thermostatic
expansion valve which monitors the evaporator outlet temperature. This temperature
regulates the refrigerant entering the coil to ensure that the evaporated refrigerant
gas does not become excessively superheated. The greater the superheat,
the more refrigerant passes into the coil to compensate.
The thermostatic expansion valve causes a sudden pressure drop in the refrigerant
liquid which causes it to evaporate and absorb heat from the air.
In addition, hot gas injection is used as a further control on the evaporating load.
This raises the evaporating pressure and temperature by passing hot gas to the coil
inlet, reducing the evaporating load.
The heat absorbed in the coil and generated by the compressor is removed in the
air-cooled condenser. A minimum of one condenser fan operates continuously when
the compressor is energised. The other condenser fans are regulated by fan
pressure switches, which are located on the AHU.

OPRM-2003-0332

At preset pressures the pressure switch energises the remaining condenser fans as
required. This increases the heat rejection capacity of the condenser in a series of
controlled steps. When the pressure falls to a preset level, the fans are de-energised
as necessary.
Depending on the internal heat load and ambient outdoor temperatures, some or all
of the fans will operate intermittently or continuously.
In addition to cooling the air (sensible cooling), the AHU also dehumidifies the air
(latent cooling). This is because cooled air cannot hold as much water vapour as
warm air. Therefore to cool below a certain temperature requires moisture to be
removed.
Some of the larger AHUs have a supply of recirculated air from the area and a
smaller percentage of fresh air. The two streams are mixed prior to passing through
the filters and coiling coil.
The advantage of mixing recirculated and fresh air is a resultant lower humidity level
of the mixture. This in turn reduces the amount of latent cooling required to achieve
the sensible cooling to offset the electrical equipment output in the conditioned
space.
Smaller AHUs, including those dedicated to battery rooms operate solely with
fresh air, since battery room supplies may contain gases etc, which cannot be
recirculated.
3.1.3

Refrigeration System Pressures


There are pressure gauges on the refrigeration circuit, with high and low refrigerant
pressure gauges on all units and oil pressure gauges on larger units.
It is important to note that there is no correct pressure, whether operating or idle,
as many factors can have a bearing on the system pressures.
Generally, the high-pressure gauge should indicate a pressure of approximately
three times that of the low-pressure gauge.
The oil pressure gauge should remain steady and indicate a good positive pressure
when the compressor is running.
When the system is switched on/off under controlled operations, the high-pressure
gauge should show a higher pressure, whilst the low-pressure gauge will show a
lower pressure.

HVAC Controls

3.2.1

General

Unrestricted

Each HVAC System is controlled and monitored by local control panels located in
the enclosed area served by the relevant system.
The local control panel for the turbine generator rooms is located in the power
module switchroom in addition to the panel for the power module switchroom itself.
HVAC System operation is automatic. Start-up of the relevant supply or extract fans
energises the system controls and allows the complete system to operate
automatically providing there are no active Emergency Support System (ESS) trips.
The HVAC Systems interface with the Pressure Safety Control System (PSCS).
HVAC Systems are totally shut down by the ESS on selected alarm and fault
conditions. All fans shut-off dampers are inhibited from starting or opening until the
ESS permissive has been restored.
3.2.2

ESS Controls
HVAC equipment and panels are powered from distribution panels located in the
respective modules.
Each enclosure air intake is equipped with gas and smoke detectors. On detection
of confirmed gas or smoke, the air inlet and outlet dampers are closed by the ESS.
This scenario leaves the HVAC System operating on recirculating mode to maintain
room conditions.
The HVAC System is shut down by the ESS on detection of confirmed gas or smoke
by detector in the room.
On loss of room pressurisation, an alarm is generated in the Central Control Room
(CCR). Where possible, the system remains operational, to maintain room
conditions.
When HVAC equipment is operational, a running status signal is displayed on the
ESS in the CCR.
On confirmed fire detection in the turbine generator rooms, the ESS shuts down the
extract fans and closes the dampers prior to initiation of the water mist system.

Power Module Main Switchroom HVAC Control


Local Control Panel LCP-1770 controls the following:

Supply Fans A-1770A-K-01 and A-1770B-K-01

Chillers A-1770A-HAC-01 and A-1770B-HAC-01

The supply fans and chillers are part of Air Handling Units AHU-1770A/B.
3.3.1

Supply Fan Control


The supply fans can be started at Local Control Panel LCP-1770 or at the DCS.
Control selection is made via a local manual/auto selector switch on LCP-1770.
When auto is selected, Supply Fan A-1770A-K-01 or A-1770B-K-01 should be
selected for duty at the duty/standby selector switch on LCP-1770.
When manual is selected, either supply fan can be started at the appropriate local
start pushbutton. On manual, the fan selector switch is not active and an interlock
prevents both fans running simultaneously.
Manual Control
The following description assumes that both fans are available and that Supply Fan
A-1770A-K-01 is to be started.
When A-1770A-K-01 pushbutton is operated, the control system checks that the fan
is available from the Motor Control Centre (MCC), before opening the outlet
dampers associated with the respective air handling unit.
Shut-off dampers HDS-1770A/B and HDS-1773 are controlled from the ESS.
The shut-off dampers status signals confirming open/closed position are repeated
on LCP-1770. Only dampers HDS-1771A and HDS-1772A/B are controlled from
LCP-1770. When the outlet dampers are confirmed open, fan A-1770A is started
from the MCC.
The temperature of the air exiting the AHU is constantly monitored and the control
system derives set points from this temperature. These set points are used to start,
stop and control the respective chiller unit.
Fire thermostats in each air handling unit initiate shutdown and provide indication,
alarms and changeover to standby.
The system is shut down as follows:

Operation of fan stop pushbuttons

2-out-of-2 voting shutdown from the ESS

Selecting manual control

Operation of the shutdown pushbutton at the AHU

Note: If A-1770A-K-01 is running and the stop pushbutton is operated,


A-1770A-K-01 will stop. However, because A-1770B-K-01 is in standby
mode, this fan will automatically start.

Auto Control
The following description assumes that both fans are available and that
A-1770A-K-01 is to be started, with A-1770B-K-01 on standby.
When auto is selected and the start signal is received from the DCS, the control
system checks that Fan A is available from the MCC before opening the outlet
dampers associated with the respective air handling unit.
Shut-off Dampers HDS-1770A/B and HDS-1773 are controlled from the ESS.
The shut-off dampers status signals, confirming open/closed position are repeated
on LCP-1770.
Only dampers HDS-1771A and HDS-1772A/B are controlled from LCP-1770. When
the outlet dampers are confirmed open, Fan A-1770A is started from the MCC.
The temperature of the air exiting the AHU is constantly monitored and the control
system derives set points from this temperature. These set points are used to start,
stop and control the respective chiller unit.
Fire thermostats in each air handling unit initiate shutdown and provide indication,
alarms and changeover to standby.
The system is shut down as follows:

3.3.2

Stop signal from LCP-1770

Selecting manual at LCP-1770

2-out-of-2 voting shutdown from the ESS

Pressure Monitoring
Pressure Differential Indicator 17-PDI-701 monitors the room pressure. A time delay
is incorporated into the control system to allow the fan to pressurise the room. If the
room pressure falls to 40Pa, an alarm is generated at LCP-1770 and a common
fault signal is transmitted to the Distributed Control System (DCS).
Pressure Differential Switch 17-PDSL-703 monitors the differential pressure across
the supply fans. If the differential pressure reaches 10Pa, a local alarm and a
common fault signal to the DCS is generated and an AHU changeover initiated.
Limit switches monitor the positions of the dampers on AHUs A-1770A and
A-1770B. If a damper is not fully open when required, a common fault signal is
initiated and the affected fan will change over to standby.
Pressure Differential Indicator 17-PDI-702 monitors the differential pressure across
the inlet filter and if the differential pressure reaches 300Pa, an alarm is generated
at LCP-1770 via 17-PDSL-702 and a common fault at the DCS is initiated.

3.3.3

Temperature Monitoring
Air inlet temperature to the supply fan is monitored by 17-TSH-746, which generates
a high temperature alarm at LCP-1770 and a common fault alarm at the DCS.
The temperature of the air leaving the AHU is monitored by 17-TS-704, which is set
at 30C. This temperature is used to control the chiller solenoid valves. HP/LP
switches are used to start/stop the chiller compressor and an HP control switch
controls the condenser fan motor.

Motor Monitoring
On fan motors A-1770A-KM-01 and A-1770B-KM-01 a signal is transmitted to
LCP-1770, which initiates running, stopped, tripped and available status displays.
If it is necessary to change over air handling units, the fans may be changed by
operation of the stop pushbutton on LCP-1770 for the running fan.
A compressor or condenser motor fault detected at the MCC stops the affected
piece of equipment. However, the chiller may still operate if one or more of the
condenser fans has failed or is unavailable. This is to ensure maximum availability
of the system.
All motor faults are monitored by the MCC.

is incorporated into the control system to allow the fan to pressurise the room. In the
event of loss of room pressure, an alarm is generated at LCP-1771 via PDAL-810
and a common fault signal transmitted to the DCS.
Pressure Differential Switch 17-PDSL-812 monitors the differential pressure across
the supply fans. In the event of a pressure loss, a local alarm and a common fault
signal to the DCS is generated and an AHU changeover initiated.
The positions of the dampers on AHU A-1770A and A-1770B are monitored. If a
damper is not fully open when required, a common fault signal is initiated and the
affected fan will change over to standby.
Pressure Differential Indicator 17-PDI-811 monitors the differential pressure across
the filter and if the differential pressure reaches 300Pa, an alarm is generated at
LCP-1771 and a common fault at the DCS is initiated.

3.4.3

Control selection is made via a local manual/remote auto selector switch on
LCP-1776.
When auto is selected, Supply Fan A-1774A-K-01 or A-1774B-K-01 should be
selected for duty via the selector switch on LCP-1776.
When manual is selected, either supply fan can be started via the appropriate local
start pushbutton. On manual, the fan selector switch is not active. An interlock
prevents both fans running simultaneously.
Manual Control
The following description assumes that both fans are available and that
A-1774A-K-01 is to be started.
When A-1774A-K-01 pushbutton is operated, the control system checks that the fan

A-1774A-K-01 will stop. However, because A-1774B-K-01 is in standby
mode, this fan will automatically start.
Auto Control
The following description assumes that both fans are available and that
A-1774A-K-01 is to be started, with A-1774B-K-01 in standby.
When auto is selected and the start signal is received from the DCS, the control
system checks that A-1774A-K-01 is available from the MCC before opening the
outlet dampers associated with the respective air handling unit.
Shut-off Dampers HDS-1794A/B and HDS-1777 are controlled from the ESS.
The shut-off dampers status signals confirming open/closed position are repeated
on LCP-1776.
Only dampers HDS-1796A/B are controlled from LCP-1776. When the outlet
dampers are confirmed open, A-1774A-K-01 is started from the MCC.
The temperature of the air exiting the AHU is constantly monitored and the control
system derives set points from this temperature. These set points are used to start,

Pressure Monitoring
Pressure Differential Indicator 17-PDI-850 monitors the room pressure. A time delay
is incorporated into the control system to allow the fan to pressurise the room. In the
event of loss of room pressure, an alarm is generated at LCP-1776 via PDAL-790
and a common fault signal transmitted to the DCS.
Pressure Differential Switch 17-PDSL-852 monitors the differential pressure across
the supply fans. In the event of a pressure loss, a local alarm and a common fault
signal to the DCS are generated and an AHU changeover initiated.
The positions of the dampers on AHU A-1774A and A-1774B are monitored. If a
damper is not fully open when required, a common fault signal is initiated and the
affected fan will change over to standby.
Pressure Differential Indicator 17-PDI-851 monitors the differential pressure across
the filter and if the differential pressure reaches 300Pa, an alarm is generated at
LCP-1776 and a common fault at the DCS is initiated.

Temperature Monitoring
Air inlet temperature to the supply fan is monitored by Temperature Switch
17-TSH-863 which generates a high temperature alarm at LCP-1776 and a common
fault alarm at the DCS.
Temperature Switch 17-TS-853 monitors the temperature of the air leaving the AHU.
This temperature is used to control the chiller solenoid valves. HP/LP switches are
used to start/stop the chiller compressor and an HP control switch controls the
condenser fan motor.

3.11.4

Motor Monitoring
On Fan Motors A-1774A-KM-01 and A-1774B-KM-01 a signal is transmitted to
LCP-1776 which initiates running, stopped, tripped and available status displays.
If it is necessary to change over air handling units, the fans may be changed by
operation of the stop pushbutton on LCP-1776 for the running fan.
A compressor or condenser motor fault detected at the MCC stops the affected
piece of equipment. However, the chiller may still operate if one or more of the
condenser fans has failed or is unavailable. This is to ensure maximum availability
of the system.
All motor faults are monitored by the MCC.

3.11.5

Refrigeration Control
The following description refers to A-1774A Refrigeration Skid. The relevant tag
numbers for A-1774A/B are detailed in Table 3.39.

PROCEDURE
Step

Action

Assuming everything is stopped and that any gas has been cleared:

SET the fan at approximately 20% of design supply (20% of normal speed)

CLOSE all fire dampers in return air path

OPEN all fire dampers in fresh air path

OPEN all fire dampers in supply air path

OPEN all fire dampers associated with pressure relief dampers

START fans in AHU

Smoke purge will have to take place through the pressure relief system, therefore
the quantity of supply air will need to be restricted.

It is not recommended that doors into the remainder of the LQ are open, as this will
tend to disperse the smoke into the LQ.

Due to the relatively low air change rate the purge time would in the order of 1 hour
or more.

If a purge system is required in the LQ any one AHU could be made to run on
100% fresh air by:

OPENING the fresh air and return air dampers of the standby unit and allowing
fresh air to be drawn into the operating unit through the return air opening via
the return air and fresh air openings in the standby unit

All LQ return air fire dampers would need to be closed

All internal and external doors would need to be opened

All supply air fire dampers would need to be open

RE-INSTATE inhibited smoke heads to normal.
