Cat diesel gensets installed on largest Russia oil and gas platform

Cat diesel gensets

Three Caterpillar Cat 3516B (HD) generator sets have been installed on what is expected to be Russia's largest offshore oil and gas platform, it's announced.

They will provide both essential and emergtency power for the fixed platform - each providing 2000 ekW @ 1500-rpm (50 Hz) of rated power. The platform also utilizes 3x Cat 3412 fire pumps.

Essential gensets provide a safe power source for drilling in case of main power loss. Emergency gensets likewise provide safe power for operators' accommodations and other safety features necessary if main power is lost. All models interchangeable in service to cover both emergency and essential loads as per power demand. The packages are customized for offshore service and severe seismic requirements.

3516B series comprises power density, long overhaul life, and ADEM A3. Auxiliary systems necessary for climate control, black dual starting capabilities at low temperatures, and snow conditions, as well as sophisticated controls, monitoring, and protection systems were included for this particular project.
