The new pump packages will replace gas turbine-driven units to take advantage of Norway’s abundant renewable electricity resources, helping to reduce the customer’s carbon footprint. The contract will be fulfilled by Celeros FT’s ClydeUnion Pumps brand, with the skidded packages being assembled at their flagship site in Glasgow.

Commenting on the contract win, Tommy Kassem, CCO of Celeros FT, says: “Decarbonization of the global energy supply chain is a critical part of reducing climate change impacts and securing a cleaner future. This involves upgrading existing oil & gas assets as well as developing new renewable resources. Celeros FT is primed to support both new and existing operators as they adapt to using alternative, greener sources of energy.”

The Draugen platform is situated approximately 145 km off the coast of Norway. Aker Solutions has lead responsibility for the platform engineering and upgrading involved in its electrification. The project involves replacement of both the main power and water injection pump turbines with an electrical power supply from a new substation onshore. It is estimated that the project, which is scheduled for completion in 2026, will yield a CO2 saving of up to 200,000 tonnes per year.
