“Cidade de Marica” FPSO called by offshore oil factory is the second VLCC conversion to FPSO project jointly conducted by CSSC and SBM Offshore for Petrobras, and it is also the most time consuming, complicated and difficult project ever in the history of FPSO conversion.
During commissioning phase for equipment and module, Aggreko China provided stable and reliable temporary power and temperature control products and professional services. For example, Aggreko China provided four sets 750KW chiller and 2MW temporary power for the main power load test. As the vessel takes nearly two month shipping to Brasa shipyard for final commission, Aggreko China put 2MW genset and technical engineer on board to guarantee its 24 hours running. When the vessel arrives at Brazil, Aggreko Brazil will do the regular maintenance for two gensets.
This is the second cooperation between Aggreko and SBM since previously Aggreko China has provided temporary power, loadbank and chiller for the “Cidade de Ilhablela” FPSO. There is no doubt that these two projects will lay very important foundation for the follow up cooperation between Aggreko and SBM.
