Smart power systems for Shell oil platforms

By | General | No Comments

WhisperPower obtained some nice orders from Shell for the supply of smart power systems for oil platforms. The WhisperPower solution enables the customer to reduce the running costs of the natural gas exploitation substantially, and reduce CO2 emissions at the platform dramatically. As a result, the platforms can be re-build to unmanned rigs, powered by solar/ diesel power systems. Operating hours of the generators are reduced from non-stop to 2 hours / day average. Diesel oil refuelling only needed once a year. Maintenance intervals every 1000 hrs, requiring maintenance just one time per year. WhisperPower trains the maintenance/exploitation company to support these installations themselves. No expensive third parties involved. The various parts of the power system are installed in special containers.
