MAN Compressor Set for Norway Field

Compressor going to Det Norske Oljeselskap’s Ivar Aasen production platform


Published:

MAN Diesel & Turbo’s first hermetically-sealed compressor to be installed in the North Sea will go to Det Norske Oljeselskap’s Ivar Aasen production platform.

The HOFIM (high-speed, oil-free, integrated motor) compressor unit is similar to MAN’s subsea compressors currently under system integration tests in Norway.

The order for Ivar Aasen consists of a multi-stage radial compressor (1x100%) arranged in tandem configuration around a centrally positioned 12,740 hp (9.5 MW) high-speed electrical motor. MECOS, which MAN acquired in early 2012, provided the integrated active magnetic bearings.

The HOFIM unit will be delivered to the module packager SMOE Pte Ltd. in Singapore, which is building the Ivar Aasen platform. In 2016, the module will be towed to the Norwegian North Sea.
