The containerised units which house Cummins Diesel V16 cylinder engines driving Newage Stamford generators with an output of 1250kva each will be used to power various areas of the site.

Weighing in at close to 20t each the lift operation was coordinated by the principle site contractor Petrofac.

DH Marine was also contracted with the connection of the power cables from the generators via a Main Distribution Unit to the Work Site Facility during some off Shetlands finest winter weather!

The generators will be utilised to provide power until the mains supply is connected early next year and thereafter will provide backup should any power outages occur.
