PTT Exploration and Production PCL

Wärtsilä has been awarded the contract to supply a complete Inert Gas Generator (IGG) system, including engineering, for a Floating Storage and Offloading (FSO) vessel serving the offshore oil & gas sector.

The vessel is owned by Thailand based PTT Exploration and Production PCL, and the new IGG will replace an existing unit. The contract was placed in February. The Wärtsilä IGG to be supplied will include a number of advanced technical features, notably a vertically designed scrubber system that avoids the challenges caused by stagnant seawater. The Wärtsilä IGG is designed to resist corrosion through having all parts in contact with seawater made of 254SMO material, a high alloy austenitic stainless steel.

“The advanced technical features of the Wärtsilä solution were crucial in winning this contract. The benefit to the customer is that they will have an extremely reliable solution with lower operating costs than with conventional systems,”

Juha Kytölä, Vice President, Environmental Solutions, Wärtsilä Marine Solutions
