Petrobras renews service agreement with MAN Diesel & Turbo

Published on: 

MAN will continue to service 20 gas turbines and compressors on four platforms of Brazilian oil major Petrobras, located in the Atlantic Campos Basin. Under the contract, MAN PrimeServ, service provider of MAN Diesel & Turbo, continues to ensure maximum efficiency and availability of the turbomachinery for another three years, with an option on further extension. Based on an embedded engineer concept, Petrobras has been entrusting to MAN's comprehensive service for these turbomachines since 2002.

In addition to large engines for generating power or propelling ships, the company uses compressor and turbine systems by MAN for production, processing and transporting of hydrocarbons. Further examples include MAN compression technology delivered for floating production, storage and offloading units (FPSO), with which Petrobras is increasing its production in the pre-salt area off the Brazilian Atlantic coast.
