On-site service for oil platforms
It’s 9 a.m. and the Norwegian Sea is calmer than usual. The sky is clear, there’s a salty tang in the air and a light offshore breeze blows over the drilling platform. The tranquil mood at sea is in stark contrast to the deafening noise produced by the machines on the platform—including the industrial gas turbine (IGT). This ensures the power supply to the small rig, making it completely autonomous. The operator of the drilling platform has many offshore oil and gas production facilities and is a long-standing MTU customer, for whom, in addition to classic shop maintenance, MTU also assumes on-site service on the platform as well as the provision of spare parts.
