HOUSTON -- Dresser-Rand Group is supplying a VECTRA 40G generator package to Siemens Oil and Gas Offshore/Sevmorneftegaz for its Prirazlomnaya project. This is the third VECTRA generator package to be delivered to the platform since the fall of 2005.
"The VECTRA power turbine provides a cost-effective solution for clients," says Dan Lowry, VP of client services for Dresser-Rand. "It requires a reduced maintenance area and is far lighter than earlier power turbine designs, so platforms can be designed to be smaller and lighter. Furthermore, the power turbine module is not required at the time of platform construction. The module can arrive on site just before commissioning without affecting the overall project schedule."
