Universal Acoustic and Emission Technologies has successfully completed the upgrade of a turbine exhaust system at the BP (NYSE: BP) Bruce Platform, approximately 211 miles northeast of Aberdeen, Scotland, in the North Sea.
The company provided its equipment to modernise the oil and gas turbine system on the platform, replacing the existing power generation and compression turbine exhaust systems on board.
Bruce Platform is of vital importance to BP’s global oil and gas operations, with production capacities of 620 mmscf of gas and 80 mb of oil per day.
Duncan Kasukonis, Universal AET Project Manager, said, “The successful completion of Universal’s scope on this project was a true team effort. This project had significant and unique challenges, not only in technical “site specific” requirements, but also in the schedule and budget available to complete the project.
Universal provided a robust, durable construction, capable of a 20-year lifespan, including 1,000 operational turbine start-up and shut-down cycles.
Sophisticated analytical methods, including Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and stress analyses, were employed to simulate expected flow distribution and backpressure within the environmental context. The result was a solid system capable of withstanding the demanding elements of the North Sea platform’s location.
Universal provides engineered acoustic, emission and filtration solutions for power generation, oil, gas, and industrial markets.
