Saftronics has been awarded a further contract for two more smart Motor Control Centre’s (MCC’s) for vessels used in the oil industry off Brazil. This follows on from a successful project in the second quarter of last year to a client that has a fleet of floating production storage and offloading vessels (FPSO) that need fitting with the new MCCs. Our client is active in sectors including petrochemicals, oil, natural gas, electricity, chemical-gas and biofuel.
MCCs, often used in industrial and large commercial buildings, are an assembly to control separate electric motors from a central location such as a machine room. FPSOs are widely used in the global oil and gas sector, to moor near offshore drilling rigs so that the oil tankers do not have to sail too close while loading. The challenge with this type of application is that space is at a premium and downtime must be kept to a minimum.
Saftronics are experienced in operating within these constraints and their compact, bespoke design is ideal for these challenging environments.
