The aero derived industrial gas generator has for many years been the source of power for pumping and electrical generation both onshore and offshore in many parts of the world. These lightweight units are operating in every conceivable climate and geographical location and as such have proved themselves particularly suitable for use in the harsh environment of the North Sea. The advantages of this type of unit for offshore operation are: compact size, high power to weight ratio lightweight modular construction, rapid black start capability, fast load change response, low onsite routine inspection/maintenance downtime, fast turn round heavy maintenance and speedy unit change out.
