Mountings chosen for FPSO unit for LNG in Norway

Paul Boughton

The pump manufacturer Ruhrpumpen has chosen Trelleborg gimbal mountings for its water injection package for LNG in Gjerdrum, Norway. The package is placed on a special designed Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit from Sevan Marine, the Sevan Voyageur.

Trelleborg’s gimbal mountings will be used as a three-point suspension system protecting the equipment from vibration and the movements of the vessel. By reducing vibration, shock and structure-borne noise, isolation systems make an important contribution to protecting high-value installations, improving efficiency, safety and the working environment.

The water injection package from Ruhrpumpen consists of two booster pumps type SCE 10X8X16 and two main pumps at SM 6X13X10. The main pump skid, that also will carry the lube oil system, has been designed as a three-point support version, which is a special design for platforms and FPSOs.
Trelleborg Industrial AVS is a leader in anti-vibration and shock mounting systems for the offshore industry and supplies mounting systems for a wide range of applications including gensets, pumps, compressors, electronic equipment and propulsion machinery. Products featured at OTC will also include the DX mount, Super U and D series, Cushymount and Cushyfloat series, all designed to meet the highest standards of reliability, acoustic efficiency and shock protection.
