Celeros FT to supply two water injection packages

Celeros Flow Technology (Celeros FT) is providing two new water injection packages, including the electric motors and variable frequency drives (VFDs), for the AKER/OKEA power from shore project in the North Sea off the coast of Norway.

The new pump packages will replace gas turbine-driven units to take advantage of Norway’s abundant renewable electricity resources, helping to reduce the customer’s carbon footprint. The contract will be fulfilled by Celeros FT’s ClydeUnion Pumps brand, with the skidded packages being assembled at its flagship site in Glasgow.

Celeros Flow Technology has been appointed by Aker Solutions to supply the two new water injection packages as part of the Draugen platform electrification project. The Draugen platform is situated approximately 145 km off the coast of Norway. Aker Solutions has lead responsibility for the platform engineering and upgrading involved in its electrification. The project involves the replacement of both the main power and water injection pump turbines with an electrical power supply from a new substation onshore. It is estimated that the project, which is scheduled for completion in 2026, will yield a CO2 saving of up to 200,000 tonnes per year.
