The Norwegian Offshore Market has shown itself to be a market leader in introducing new requirements and technological innovations in the gas turbine packages used on new installations.

This paper will review the changes that Altair Norge A/S has been a party to in the areas of “acoustics”, “reduction in pressure losses”, “reductions in weight”,” and an overall effort to reduce the “costs”.

The systems effected by the above changes are Inlets, Ventilation, Enclosures, and Exhausts. The time span of this review is from 1981 to the present; with the emphasis on the last 5 years.

It will be shown how the requirements generated by the authorities to protect the employees offshore generate benefits technologically.
