OPRA Announces Major Overhaul Contract For Off Shore Units

May this year, OPRA has received a major overhaul contract for the three OP16 Gas Turbine units located on the Piranema Teekay platform.

This is already the second cycle of overhauls for the Piranema platform sited in Brazil and currently equipped with three OP16-3A dual fuel all-radial gas turbine generators. The total contract includes the major overhaul of the gas turbines generator packages, field service and equipment installation support.

The OP16 packages were commissioned in 2007. Since then the customer has successfully been able to reduce the carbon emission significantly by 30 – 40%. The vessel required a power source which could run on both diesel and associated gas to meet the base load requirement and, due to limited space availability, the solution needed to be compact and lightweight.

“The overhaul contract for the Piranema OP16 units is a major milestone for OPRA and is a key indicator of the Aftermarket Business Unit  growth. These remote located units have been operating for more than 10 years, and they’re still running strongly,” said Hilbert Elsinga, Aftermarket & Service Director at OPRA , “this second major overhaul not only refurbishes the units but will add up-to-date technology and upgrades in order to enhance the customer experience extending the lifetime of our product while securing their investment”.

OPRA is proud of the longstanding relationship with Teekay which began in 2006 with the first order. The strategic focus on the aftermarket activities, together with the proven reliability of the OP16, is  the main pillar of OPRA’s strategy plan for long term profitability and growth.
