Main contractor Hyundai Engineering and Construction (HDEC) has ordered five Rolls-Royce aero-derivative Trent 60 gas turbine generator sets to power offshore production platforms and oil and gas processing facilities on Zirku Island.
Each Trent 60 system can generate up to 66 MW of power. Rolls-Royce will manufacture the equipment at its plants in Montreal, Canada, and Mount Vernon, Ohio.
SARB involves construction of facilities on two artificial islands to export oil from 86 wells on the SARB oil field, 120 km (75 mi) northwest of Abu Dhabi. Additionally, HDEC will build a complex on Zirku Island to separate gas from crude produced from the SARB and Umm Al Lulu oil fields.
The complex will be equipped to process 200,000 b/d of oil and 35 MMcf/d (991,000 cm/d) of gas, for domestic use.
