Wärtsilä Hamworthy Hydrocarbon Vent Gas (VOC) Recovery
Technology that facilitates the recovery of VOC from onshore and offshore facilities
Our VOC recovery system for Hydrocarbon Gas is based on the principle of condensation. This allows organic components in the vent gas to be separated and returned to their place of origin, or used as valuable and clean fuel for both increased product output and environmental benefits.
When used in combination with a power generation system, emissions of VOC are totally eliminated. The system thus becomes a net provider of steam or electric power during operation by utilizing the lightest non condensable fractions of VOC as fuel.
The plant operates on electric power and a cooling source, such as water or air. The compact modular design, which is assembled and tested prior to delivery, ensures fast and easy installation.
