Rolls-Royce wins power contract for ADMA-OPCO field offshore UAE


Global power systems company Rolls-Royce has been awarded a contract to supply power services and equipment to an Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA-OPCO) offshore project in the UAE

The contract was awarded by South Korean firm Hyundai Engineering and Construction (HDEC) for the Satah Al Razboot (SARB) project.

The SARB project involves the construction of facilities to transfer oil drilled on 86 wells of the the offshore field, 120km northwest of Abu Dhabi. Facilities related to collection and transportation of oil and gas would be constructed on two artificial islands.

In addition, HDEC is also expected to build a facility in Zirku Island to separate gas from crude oil collected in the SARB and Umm al-Lulu fields. The Zirku Island oil and gas processing facility will have a daily oil capacity of 200,000 barrels and 991,090 cubic metres of gas, ADMA-OPCO said.

According to the terms of the contract, Rolls-Royce will supply five aero-derivative Trent 60 gas turbine generator sets to power offshore production platforms and oil and gas processing facilities on Zirku Island.

Each Trent 60 gas turbine is capable of producing up to 66MW of power and will feature low emissions technology to minimise environmental impact, the company added. This contract reportedly brings the total number of Trent 60 gas turbines operating in the UAE oil and gas market to fourteen.

Andrew Heath, president of energy at Rolls-Royce said, “I am delighted that Rolls-Royce has been chosen to deliver the power generation required for the milestone SARB project. This contract reflects the Trent 60’s attractiveness as the most powerful and reliable aero-derivative gas turbine available and strengthens our role supporting the Middle East’s critical energy infrastructure.”

Rolls-Royce said that it will manufacture and package the equipment at its facilities in Montreal, Canada and Mount Vernon, USA.
