Diesel Hydraulic Fire Water Pump Systems

Project description

The Sepetiba FPSO design is based on SBM Offshore’s industry leading Fast4Ward® program. The FPSO Sepetiba will be deployed at the Mero field in the Santos Basin offshore Brazil, 180 kilometers offshore Rio de Janeiro. The Libra block, where the Mero field is located, is operated by a consortium comprised of Petrobras, as the Operator, Shell, Total, CNODC and CNOOC Limited.

For this project Hydrodiesel successfully tested and delivered a total of four 2250 m³/h Fire Water Pump Systems. Each system consists of a hydraulic driven lift pump, installed below the water line, delivering water to a below deck mounted diesel driven booster pump. The control philosophy is designed for full autonomous operation. Design, construction and testing according to the requirements of Bureau Veritas, NR-13 and NFPA-20 is all done in-house.
