Peter Brotherhood secures oil industry contract

UK engineering company Peter Brotherhood is further demonstrating its expertise in supplying the offshore oil industry with a major new contract for equipment destined for oil fields off North West Australia.

The contract is to supply a complete steam turbo alternator set, worth over £650,000, to Four Vanguard. The equipment is for installation on a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) facility at the Woollybutt oil field, off the North West shelf of Australia.

The turbo alternator set is capable of delivering 4.5 MW of power from steam raised by a central boiler plant. It is due to be commissioned during the second half of this year.

Peter Brotherhood, which is based in Peterborough, UK, won the contract because of its extensive experience of supplying equipment to the oil industry. It already has three similar systems operating on vessels in the same oil fields and nine more throughout the world.

Peter Brotherhood won the first order of this type in 1981 when it supplied two turbines to the worlds first FPSO, the Shell Medora, which was moored in the Fulmar Field in the North Sea.

Ray Bowell of Peter Brotherhood said: “We were competing against a number of other companies for this contract which we won because we were able to demonstrate extensive knowledge with this particular type of application.”
