StatoilHydro has awarded Aibel the EPCI (Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation) contract valued at approximately 58 MUSD (300MNOK) to replace the existing Heat Recovery Steam Generation (HRSG) system on its Oseberg D platform in the North Sea.

The project will include the dismantling of the existing heat recovery system, a capacity evaluation of process and auxiliary systems, construction analysis of the existing platform, follow-up, installation and hook-up of the new (700 t) module. The new HRSG system, so-called Once Through Steam Generation technology, will utilise the heat from the flue gas in two gas export compressors to generate steam which will be used to power a steam turbine which in turn will generate 15MW electric power for use on the platform.

Aibel president and CEO R. Rasmus Sunde believes: “It is always gratifying to win repeat business from an existing customer as it endorses the quality of the other work we are already involved with and it also endorses our position as a long-term partner of choice.” Aibel has been involved at the Oseberg field since 1994 under the terms of a frame agreement with StatoilHydro for maintenance and modification services.
