Rolls-Royce wins $136 m trents contract

Rolls-Royce, the power systems company, has been awarded contracts worth US$136 million to supply technology and long-term services support to Dolphin Energy Limited, which transports natural gas from Qatar to UAE and Oman via a 364km subsea pipeline.

Rolls-Royce will supply Dolphin Energy Limited with three industrial Trent gas turbine compression packages. The three new trent units, each rated at 52MW, will join six similar Rolls-Royce packages that went into service at Dolphin Energy’s Gas processing plant in Ras Laffan, Qatar, in 2006.

Dolphin Energy Limited has also signed a TotalCare long-term equipment service agreement designed to increase equipment availability and reliability. The equipment will be manufactured and packaged at the Rolls-Royce facilities in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and Mount Vernon, Ohio and US. Delivery of the packaged units to Ras Laffan will be in the second and third quarters of 2013.
