Hydraulic actuators for South Atlantic floating production vessel



Photographed during installation at the Maua Jurong Shipyard in Rio de Janiero, this Rotork GH range heavy duty hydraulic failsafe actuator will operate a Tomoe Tritec 24inch double flanged Class 1500 Triple Offset Butterfly valve handling liquid hydrocarbons on the giant new Petrobras P54 floating production storage and offloading vessel (FPSO).

Rotork Fluid Systems has received orders for GH range actuators from valvemakers including Tomoe in the UK and Cooper Cameron in Italy for this significant project, which will produce oil from thirteen deep water wells in the Campos Basin, off the south eastern coast of Brazil. The huge vessel will have a daily capacity to produce 180,000 barrels of oil and compress 6 million cubic metres of natural gas from the Roncador Field.

Pictured with the valve and actuator is Neil Harden, Tomoe’s General Manager Sales & Marketing.
