Burckhardt Compression gives Laby®-GI Compressor a revamp


Burckhardt Compression’s very first Laby®-GI Compressor was used as a minimum send-out (MSO) compressor on the FSRU (floating storage and regasification unit) vessel Golar Freeze.

Golar Management, based in Norway, has decided to re-market the vessel with a different function that requires a major revamp of the MSO Compressor – Burckhardt Compression has been awarded the contract.

After nearly 10 years of reliable operation in a harsh marine environment with low maintenance, the robustness of the Laby®-GI Compressor has paid off. This was the first compressor of its kind installed on an FSRU vessel. Golar Management Oslo, the ship-owner, has decided to provide the vessel with new employment. The new charterer in Jamaica will use the compressor for a different purpose, delivering gas to the Jamaica’s power utility JPS. This requires an increase in discharge pressure from 45 to 65 barg that, in turn, requires an additional compression stage, along with its extra auxiliaries, piping and other modifications.
