Application of gas turbines for power generation services aboard special classed floater vessels for mobile oil and gas exploration platforms has been demonstrated and certified by classification societies. A floating platform, designed by Kerr McGee UK PLC, in operation in the North Sea on purpose-built vessel, Tentech 850, has incorporated a pair of Mars T-12,000 gas turbine generator sets designed and supplied by Solar Turbines. The system has been registration classed and certified by Det Norske Veritas in mid 1993 for all of the power generating services required for extended oil extraction and pre-production processing, as well as, auxiliary electric power required for operations.

This paper presents the selection and certification process required for this application and an update of the operating experience during the first years of operation.
