Boiler plant order boost for Parat Halvorsen
In normal operation, the boiler is part of the hot water and heat recovery
loop and supplies necessary additional heat to the HVAC, sanitary and tank
heating systems on board. If an oil spill disaster should occur, the boiler
will be re-mobilised to run as a steam boiler. The steam is used to maintain
viscosity in the recovered crude oil emulsion in the ORO storage tanks,
complete in accordance with the NOFO requirements.
For the Vard
order, Parat Halvorsen will supply combined electric steam and hot water
boilers each with a capacity of 1,250 kW for the company’s multi-purpose
platform ships. The vessels are of Vard 108 design with a total length of 81m
and a cargo deck area of 830m². They will be used for standby, rescue, firefighting
and oil recovery operations.
Two of the ships will be built and are scheduled from Vard Vung Tau in
Vietnam in 2015 and 2016 for the ship owner, E. R. Offshore. The other two
ships will be built at Vard Aukra shipyard for the ship owner, Nordic American
Offshore, and both are scheduled for delivery in 2015.
For Tersan shipyard, the boiler plants will be delivered for two freezer
trawlers which will be equipped with Parat combined oil fired and exhaust gas
boilers, type MCS, to comply steam production for the vessels’ fishmeal and
fish oil factory.
Both freezer trawlers are designed by Skipsteknisk in Norway and will be
of ST-116 and ST-118 design. Both
trawlers are scheduled for delivery in 2016.
