Electrical Protection Optimisation Study

EPS has recently completed an electrical protection co-ordination study using power system modelling software for one of our bulk chemical transportation clients. The study reported several areas of concern and addressed where the protection could be improved to prevent future outages out at sea.

Oil&Gas FPSO Subsea Tie Back Project

EPS was requested to provide a power system study for HV power and increased LV load to accommodate increased oil production rates for a vessel located offshore. The existing Gas Turbine Generators (GTG’s) are to be upgraded to accommodate this. This is to allow 3 out of 4 GTGs to operate…

Electrical, Control & Instrumentation Design

A Teesside based chemical bulk storage company requested EPS to provide Engineering & Design EC&I services for a new compressed gas storage facility. This consisted of a new Motor Control Centre (MCC), hazardous area lighting, compressor motors, pumps, PLC panel and instrumentation to monitor and control the new facility.

Oil&Gas Dive Support Vessel

EPS has recently completed an electrical protection co-ordination study using ETAP power system modelling software for one of our clients supporting the North Sea Oil&Gas industry. The study reported several areas of concern and addressed where the protection could be improved to prevent future outages out at sea.

Oil& Gas Diving Vessel

EPS recently completed an Arc Flash Energy study for another offshore dive support vessel comprising of offshore surveys, ETAP power system model development and an arc flash energy mitigation report. The report detailed what measures should be put in place to make the electrical distribution system safe and put in place…

Biomass Gas Plant

EPS was awarded a contract to provide power quality analyser services for several biomass plants located around the UK. All too often we are finding poor quality electrical design and installations where catastrophic failures have occurred due to inadequate engineering. The power study determined what caused the failures and recommended the…

Combined Heat & Power

EPS has recently (July 2016) been awarded the contract to design and build a new dedicated 11kV supply for a new Combined Heat & Power project. The project involves detailed design of a new 11kV switch room and substation, complete with earthing design and individual LV 415V supplies to each CHP…

SP Energy Networks

An earthing design was carried out and successfully completed for SP Energy Networks wind turbine substation. The substation tied back several 1 MW wind turbines with each wind turbine having its own below ground earthing system including lightning protection system. Each wind turbine required its own below ground earthing system.

Dhabi Nortech

Over the years EPS has been providing ongoing engineering design services for Nortech Oil & Gas. Working for international clients based in the Middle East. Projects range from conceptual design studies for a new 11 kV ring main with approximately 15 km of cable and 5 off 11 kV Ring Main…

Bluewater

Bluewater owns and operates a fleet of five Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) installations around the globe currently leased to oil & gas companies. EPS was requested to undertake a comprehensive electrical protection offshore survey of their Haewene Brim FPSO, the survey consisted of a 4 day period gathering details…
