OTC 2013: Dresser-Rand to showcase deep-sea solutions

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Dresser-Rand will exhibit technologies designed to improve efficiency and reduce life cycle costs for deep-sea and FPSO applications.

The company will promote the subsea capabilities of its DATUM integrated compression system (ICS). The system integrates proprietary separation technology, Synchrony magnetic bearing technology and DATUM compressor technology with process piping and coolers into a single-lift package.

Dresser-Rand will also display the four-stroke, direct injection, turbocharged-after cooled Guascor power engine. The technology makes it possible to obtain more power while reducing consumption and the temperature in the combustion chamber. The design of the Guascor engine’s piston and cylinder-head, along with its liner cooling systems, facilitates thermodynamic balance and results in less wear and longer engine component life, according to the company.
