P11 Topside Standard Satellite
From the oil platform, a unique combination of wind turbines and solar panels would be used to generate renewable energy that is stored in batteries. ONE wanted to install an gas platform 50 kilometres off the Dutch coast, where gas could be produced. Using a new and innovative platform concept, ONE would be able to develop two marginal fields economically. From the oil platform, a unique combination of wind turbines and solar panels would be used to generate renewable energy that is stored in batteries.
For the construction of the platform, ONE looked for a new supplier, outside the traditional market suppliers, to build the P11 project. KH Engineering was selected for the design of the topside, because KH was large enough to jointly undertake the investment. The client’s business model is based on diversification and making a difference compared to the traditional market. The client wanted to use this to gain a competitive advantage.
The scope was to standardise and innovate as much as possible during the project. In addition to the process installations, the unmanned satellite was equipped with an emergency shelter for eight people, a helicopter deck and a five-ton crane.
Benefits to the client
The project was executed by an integrated team. A separate floor was cleared for use by the client and KH team at our location during this designphase, which resulted in exclusivity and innovation for the client. The process knowledge within KH Engineering was applied to the operation. And we ultimately created a tailor-made solution: an unmanned platform that can produce independently. Advantages for the client were the speed of drafting a quotation and the availability of the right technical disciplines.
Inspection services & asset integrity
Smart Asset Integrity Solutions deliverd the clients support for specification of the material and equipment of the satellite. They inspected the platform during fabrication and final completion.
