Heerema is a company specialised in the engineering and fabrication of complex structures for offshore oil & gas and energy-related industries. Delivering on-time and with high quality and safety standards is firmly set in their DNA. Heerema needed a reliable partner for temporary offshore power for the production and installation of an offshore platform off the coast of Central Africa.
Three offshore generators of 1250kVA were installed on the main deck during the construction phase. Once finished, the entire offshore platform was transported to the project site, powered by our equipment. The installation on site was done by Heerema’s crane vessel ‘Thialf’.
Once in operation, the platform was going to use gas generators to generate power. Gas that escapes when activating the platform’s gas generators was a major safety risk. Therefore, all rental units were equipped with gas detection units, alarm systems and a fire extinguishing system.
We provided on the job training to Heerema’s engineers to allow them to maintain the units while in operation. Being part of the worldwide Caterpillar Dealer Network, we are able to provide local support when required.
