Pearl GTL Contract is a GEM for KVA

Aberdeen-based generator specialist KVA Limited has secured a contract to provide diesel generators for the two Pearl GTL Platforms offshore in Qatar. 

The deal involves the design, testing and commissioning of seven project-specific diesel generator sets. Three will be installed on each of the two platforms, while a spare unit will be available for standby.

Sponsored by Qatar Petroleum and Shell, Pearl GTL comprises the development of upstream gas production facilities as well as an onshore GTL plant that will produce 140,000 barrels per day of high quality GTL fuels and products along with 120,000 bpd of condensate, liquefied petroleum gas and ethane. Pearl GTL is not only the world’s largest integrated GTL project, but also the largest energy project ever launched within the borders of Qatar.

KVA predicts that contract will contribute to its turnover rising from £4million in 2007 to approximately £7.5million in 2008.

KVA managing director Jeff King said: “Our Project Team has a fantastic track record with this type of generator, we delivered three similar units to Chevron for use on the Erskine Platform in the North Sea which, have now been in operation for several years. While similar to the Erskine Units these Pearl units will be unique in respect of the specific design elements requested by Shell”. 

The Qatar contract was awarded to KVA by J. Ray McDermott’s Middle East operations, which is engineering, constructing and installing the Pearl GTL Platforms. Three units are due to be delivered mid 2008 with the remaining four later in the Year.

The platforms will not be manned for the majority of the time, and as such the generators must be extremely reliable and require minimum maintenance. These will be designed to operate for 2500 hours between service intervals and will feature remotely controlled systems that allow their status to be checked from a monitoring centre 70km away.
