Peterborough Brotherhood supplies Single Buoy Moorings


Business | Press | News

Peter Brotherhood's world leading expertise in the design and manufacture of steam turbine driven generator sets for use on floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels has led to the company securing another multi-million pound order from Single Buoy Moorings (SBM).

The Peterborough, UK-based company has already supplied SBM with eight steam turbine driven generator sets in the past five years.


This latest order is for two 14 MW condensing steam turbine driven generator sets for the Espirito Santo (BC-10) FPSO vessel to be moored off the coast of Brazil.

The Espirito Santo (BC-10) development will be the first full field development based on subsea oil and gas separation and subsea pumping. Espirito Santo technology requirements include artificial deepwater lift via high power electric pumps in seabed caissons and horizontal wells. The double-sided FPSO design includes significant power and heat delivery systems that are required to drive the system and process the heavy crudes that range from 16 to 24 degrees API.

The two steam turbine driven generator sets each consist of a turbine, gearbox and generator, all mounted on a common bedplate which incorporates the oil system, and a separate water-cooled condenser mounted directly below the turbine's exhaust. The equipment is currently being installed and commissioned on board the vessel.

SBM chose Peter Brotherhood because of its previous experience with the company and because of Peter Brotherhood's extensive experience in manufacturing steam turbine driven generator sets for installation on FPSO vessels.

Peter Brotherhood's sales and marketing director Steve Wellburn said: "We have secured a number of contracts with SBM in recent years. With the inclusion of this latest order we have supplied ten turbines on board six FPSO vessels which have a total power output of 130 MWe."

Peter Brotherhood has been designing and manufacturing steam turbine driven generator sets for FPSOs since 1981 and has installed turbines on vessels which are moored off the coast of West Africa, Indonesia, Thailand, Brazil and Australia and in the North Sea.
