SBM Offshore VRU's

Kemostål supplied 2 x 100% HC Vapour Recovery Units (VRU’s) for use onboard a converted FSO/FPSO. The FPSO is intended for operation in the Cossack oil fields off the North West shelf of Australia operated by Woodside Energy Ltd, replacing the FPSO Cossack Pioneer.

The two systems each consist of one Kemopac single stage rotary lobe blower package with blower model PD Plus 7021 and 290 kW 60 Hz ATEX-motor which compresses three different kinds of hydrocarbon gas mixes with a flow of 5300 N3m/h (3120 cfm) from 0 to 1100 mbarg (0 to 16 psig). Inlet / outlet temp.45 / 100 C (113 / 212 F).

The VRU-units have many different sub systems to meet the high demands commonly required within the offshore industry. They are built inside a container type design of acoustic hoods able to reach below 80 dBA (@ 1 m).

This delivery was Kemostal’s first major delivery to the offshore industry.
