CiTECH have been awarded the order from Samsung Heavy Industries for Two CiBAS C70 WHRU for the NEXUS 1 FPSO to provide heat to the on-board Oil & Gas Processing System. The CiBAS units are designed to be cold case and to run flooded, the units are specified to recover at a combined flow rate of 562,600 kg/hr a total thermal duty of 30,000 kW through a Water Glycol system recovering heat from two Solar Titan 130 Gas Turbines.
The units were delivered as required to Samsung and the FPSO as Nexus 1 operated offshore Norway for a time. However Nexus ran into financial difficulties and the vessel was sold onto OSX a Brazilian Oil Company. After some modification to suit the new oilfield the FPSO now operates in the Campos Basin offshore Brazil.
