Hazardous Area Pump Package for Unmanned Platform
25th Feb 2014
With reliability paramount, Calder was tasked with the design and manufacture of a produced water feed pump package for use on an unmanned platform for the Samarang Redevelopment Phase 2 Project in the South China Sea.
The unit is mounted in a light-weight, robust crash frame with easy access to components. The centrifugal pump is driven by a CAT 3304 gas engine, and will achieve a flow of 168 m3/hour and 27m head. The gas engine will run on waste natural gas from the production process. The electric start has a hydraulic start back-up system. The unit is suitable for use in Zone II hazardous areas and has a T3 (200°c) temperature rating.
This unit is part of the Calder MultiJet range, derivatives of which have been in operation worldwide over the last three decades in the harshest of environments.
