Veolia Water Technologies, through its subsidiary VWS Westgarth Ltd, has been awarded a contract by MODEC for the supply of a seawater treatment package for the FPSO Almirante Barroso MV32, to be deployed at the Buzios field offshore Brazil.
The award is for the design and procurement of equipment with construction for a seawater treatment plant sized for 280 200 bpd (44 450 m3/d) of low sulfate water for the Almirante Barroso FPSO unit which will operate in the Buzios field, 180 km offshore from the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
The seawater system provided as a single process module, comprising coarse strainers, UltraMEV ultrafiltration pretreatment, sulfate removal feed pumps, sulfate removal membrane trains, membrane CIP system, vacuum deaerator package, water injection booster pumps, plant control system, piping, valves and instrumentation.
This is the sixth contract awarded from MODEC to Veolia, and can be attributed to the successes of previous projects executed for the company. Almirante Barroso FPSO will be the fifth FPSO in the Buzios field. The FPSO will be spread moored in a water depth of 1900 m and will be able to store approximately 1.4 million boe.
