GE Oil & Gas has received a contract to provide a turnkey turbomachinery solution to Petrofac Emirates for the Upper Zakum UZ750 field in Abu Dhabi, developed by ZADCO (Zakum Development Company).

The turbomachinery equipment will be delivered in the form of massive, standalone, plug-and-play “modules,” which will ship intact from GE’s advanced construction facility in Avenza, Italy, to an artificial island located 50 miles offshore of Abu Dhabi. Each module will weigh more than 1,500 tons and be 44 meters long, 20 meters wide and 24 meters high. These six “mega structures” will serve as the housing in which a turbogenerator train is located that will provide electric power to ZADCO’s oil production facilities, including pumps and gas compressors, also on the island.
