Closing an Open-Cycle Circuit on a Gas Turbine in Oman

Products: Gas Turbine Systems, Heavy-Duty Dampers & Diverters
Industry: Oil & Gas
Location: Amal, Oman

Boldrocchi has done several projects for Petroleum Development Oman (PDO), including one in Amal in which we helped close an existing open cycle circuit on a GE turbine. We designed four various dampers and diverters and had them made on-site, constantly supervising fabrication. Installation of the diverter, also supervised by Boldrocchi, was a significant challenge: the diverter measuring 5.2 x 5.2 m (17’ x 17’) had to be fit into the existing circuit with a mere 20 cm (8”) clearance!

On this project for PDO, Boldrocchi worked with Nooter/Eriksen, who supplied the heat recovery steam generators.

Scope of supply

  • 1 diverter
  • 1 slide gate / guillotine
  • 2 purge air dampers
  • Ductwork

Installation

Although Boldrocchi often manufactures is diverters and dampers in its Italian in-house facilities, we can also oversee fabrication locally, which was the case here. A Boldrocchi manufacturing supervisor spent three months in Oman carefully supervising the work. Installation of the diverter, also supervised by Boldrocchi, was a significant challenge: the diverter measuring 5.2 x 5.2 m (17’ x 17’) had to be fit into the existing circuit with a mere 20 cm (8”) clearance!
