Power Module For FPSO

Wartsila Corporation has supplied Bergensen d.y. Offshore AS, Norway a 5,800 kW power module to be installed on board the FPSO vessel Berge Hus, according to Marinelog. The Berge Hus vessel is currently at the Jurong shipyard in Singapore being converted from a VLCC to a FPSO which is a floating production, storage and offloading vessel. The power module is a ready made unit designed and built specifically for the offshore oil and gas industry and will operate on the Ceiba oil field off Equatorial Guinea. Oil was reached in the Ceiba field by Sendje Berge in November which is another Bergesen FPSO vessel. The Berge Hus will take over work on the field in the first quarter of 2002 to complete the planned ten production wells and four water injection wells and continue handling the crude oil produced from the field.
