For the construction of a new 36 MW power station on Das Island, Actemium Oil & Gas commissioned setec for civil engineering design and supervision, along with a number of process-related tasks.
The power station is an outdoor facility with a “black-start” function based on a GE Frame 6 turbine for both sweet and sour gas.
setec applied its expertise to various process and civil engineering tasks.
- Optimizing the layout of the power plant in a very limited area
- Verifying the plant’s mass and energy balances with and without the combined cycle option
- Drafting a summary report of the piping interfacing with the turbine generator
- Reviewing the overall design of the gas booster utility
- Designing and validating the industrial HVAC system for the electric plant
Civil engineering tasks:
- Optimizing the concrete mixtures for an aggressive environment with a very hot climate
- Defining, monitoring and interpreting the geotechnology campaign
- Costing the project in the bid phase, developing engineering specifications to offshore and U.S. standards (ACI and ASCE), and providing assistance with local contracting
- Supervising on-site construction work for 18 months
- Carrying out basic and detailed civil engineering surveys of the power plant (approximately 300 documents)
- Making a dynamic calculation of the turbine base
