How it works

Reduction Gear

Allows the use of compact 4- pole generators for 50 or 60 Hz applications.

Bearings in Cold Part

Minimal oil consumption and a guaranteed oil- free exhaust.

Radial Turbine

Allows for high fuel flexibility due to lack of cooling holes and robust forged design.

The OP16 Gas Turbine can run on almost any gas or liquid fuel

Applications

The OP16 Gas Turbine creates value in your application!

Around the world, 150 billion cubic meters of associated gas are flared and vented every year. This has a significant impact on the environment as 400 million tons of carbon dioxide are emitted. OPRA Turbines can utilize even highly contaminated and low- calorific gases as fuel to generate clean electricity.

Wellhead gases in upstream oil and gas production are often flared or vented. These associated gases are often contaminated e.g. with H2S or have a high content of heavy hydro carbons making them very challenging to utilize for power generation. The OP16 Gas Turbine can use even these challenging gases directly to generate clean electricity without the need for cleaning.

OP16 Gas Turbines are operating worldwide in remote and offshore applications where they are often the only source for power generation. The robust, simple design makes the OP16 Gas Turbine highly reliable requiring little or no maintenance.

The OP16 Gas Turbine combines extremely high power density with a reliable, low- maintenance operation. The OP16 Gas Turbine meets the high standards for offshore and marine applications.

Tanker ships are transporting large amounts of crude oil from offshore platforms to the shore. When crude oil is contained in tankers, certain components “gas out” and form VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), which need to be removed from the tank. Instead of flaring these VOCs, the OP16 Gas Turbine can utilize VOCs as a valuable fuel.

The petrochemical industry requires large amounts of thermal and electrical energy. Off-gases, which are a byproduct of downstream processes, often contain high amounts of hydrogen or have a low calorific value, which often fluctuates over time. The OP16 Gas Turbine can use even these challenging gases directly to generate clean electricity and heat without the need for cleaning.

Refineries require large amounts of heat, steam and electricity in their processes. In many cases off-gases are produced as a byproduct of refinery operations. The OP16 Gas Turbine can use even these challenging gases as fuel for generating heat, steam and electricity to feed back into the process.

The OP16 Gas Turbine combines extremely high power density with a reliable, low- maintenance operation. The OP16 Gas Turbine meets the high standards for FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading), offshore and marine applications.
