Offshore staff

WINTERTHUR, Switzerland – Lindel Private, a subsidiary of Keppel FELS, has contracted Sulzer Pumps to supply 42 pumps for two FPSOs deployed to the presalt Iracema cluster areas in the Santos basin offshore Brazil.

Keppel FELS Brasil is responsible for fabrication and integration of the P-66 and P-69 vessels under a contract awarded by the Petrobras-led Tupi B.V. consortium.

Sulzer’s order comprises pump packages for seawater lift, water injection, and auxiliary services. The water injection pump packages contain API 610 BB5 pump models driven by 5.5-MW electric motors, and the seawater lift pump packages consist of vertical pumps driven by 960-kW submersible electric motors.

Other pumps will be deployed for cooling water circulation, hot water circulation, and water injection pump boosting.

All packages will be built at Sulzer Pumps’ plant in Jundiaí, São Paulo, Brazil, and will be delivered next year.
