Emerson Wins Contract with Golar LNG

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

Emerson Process Management has won a contract from Golar LNG to supply PlantWeb digital automation architecture for basic process control and safety systems on the Golar Freeze, a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) vessel. 

Currently an LNG carrier, the Golar Freeze will be converted into a floating terminal, and docked at a purpose-built jetty in the Jebel Ali Port near Dubai, UAE. Golar will operate the vessel. Dubai Supply Authority (Dusup) will operate the jetty and the high pressure export line into Dubai to supply needed gas during high energy demand months in the summer.
 
“Floating storage and regasification units are the ultimate example of reuse and innovation,” said Tor Jahren, project manager of ship conversions for Golar.  “We are looking forward to working side-by-side with Emerson Process Management on the vessel conversion as we trust they have knowledge of the onboard systems and the required capabilities in digital process automation.”

Built in 1977, the Golar Freeze is only the fourth traditional LNG vessel to undergo a regasification conversion. Golar and Emerson engineering teams will work side-by-side in Norway on the execution of the project.  Conversion is planned to begin in Q4 2009.  The converted Golar Freeze will be capable of storing 125,000 cubic meters of LNG and delivering up to 480 MMSCFD (approximately 13.000.000 cubic meters per day) of regasified LNG to Dusup for delivery into the Dubai gas network.

The Golar Freeze will make use of Emerson’s PlantWeb digital plant architecture for process control, power management, and safety instrumented systems. PlantWeb components in the mainstream process and power management systems include the DeltaV digital automation system, AMS Suite predictive maintenance software, Fisher control valves with FieldVue digital valve controllers, and Rosemount pressure, level and flow transmitters.

Components in Emerson’s smart safety instrumented system (SIS) include the DeltaV SIS system, Fisher FieldVue SIS digital valve controllers for Fisher valves, and Rosemount SIS measurement instruments.
