7 April 2010 – The Dresser-Rand Group is to supply advanced turbomachinery to three different clients for four floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels, three of which are destined for Petrobras’ pre-salt oil fields in the Santos Basin offshore Brazil and one for the UK sector of the North Sea.
 
The company will supply four gas turbine generator sets for on-site energy supplies, plus 14 centrifugal compressor trains and two mechanical drive gas turbines for these projects. The total price for the scope being supplied exceeds $120 million.
 
The gas turbine generator sets will be engineered by Dresser-Rand’s packaging centre in Kongsberg in Norway, and the compressor trains in Le Havre, France and Olean, New York, US.
 
‘Leveraging our global presence and world-class singular processes, our teams in Houston, Le Havre, Kongsberg and Kuala Lumpur worked closely with our clients’ teams on selecting the best technology to meet application requirements and offer single-source solutions for compression and power generation,’ said Jesus Pacheco, Dresser-Rand’s executive vice president, New Equipment Worldwide.
