Rolls-Royce has been awarded a contract to supply power generation equipment to a project in the UAE by Korean contractor Hyundai Engineering and Construction.
The contract is for the supplying of power generation equipment and related services to help boost oil and gas processing at the Satah Al- Razboot project. It covers the supply of 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 will have a 66MW capacity and will have low emissions technology.
The Satah Al- Razboot project includes the construction of two production platforms at the offshore oil field, 120 km north-west of Abu Dhabi.
Rolls-Royce will manufacture and package the equipment at its facilities in Montreal, Canada and Mount Vernon, USA.
The field is being developed by operator ADNOC, with support from the Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company.
