Oil Production Offshore Platform Power Management and Emissions Treatments


PROJECT OVERVIEW:

GCS was contacted by an offshore operator to install air fuel ratio control systems on six Waukesha generators on an offshore rig. The new system incorporates modern digital speed, air fuel ratio control and exhaust catalysts for improved speed and emissions controls. The original fuel system had Fisher regulators and OEM diaphram carburetors which were prone to drift with load changes. The Gulf of Mexico offshore platform was experiencing such high CO concentrations that emergency rig evacuation events occurred due to the excessive CO levels in the onboard living quarters.
