Heerema Zwijndrecht was awarded the fabrication contract of the 11,000-tons weighing Valhall Re-Development Integrated Production & Hotel Facility deck a few years ago. During the last phase of the construction and commission of the largest offshore deck ever built in the Netherlands, Heerema asked for the support of Aggreko.
Aggreko Netherland supplied 3 x 350 kVA generators during the commissioning phase of the offshore deck. As load demand changed day by day generators were set on load on demand. In addition a load bank of 5MW was used to test the two 3,5MVA generators on board. Finally a total cooling system was provided to simulate an offshore cooling seawater system. The project started already in 2009, but is still ongoing.
Recently the BP Valhall main deck has set course to offshore Norway for installation. Aggreko supplied 2 x 200kVA offshore generators on the Valhall which are being used during transport and installation to supply power for the lighting and crane.
