Oil and gas industry service provider Petrofac has selected a range of Alfa Laval environmental products for the new Petrofac JSD6000. Alfa Laval PureDry, PureBilge and PureBallast will all be installed aboard this derrick lay vessel.

“One of our objectives is to minimize the ecological footprint of the vessel in the marine and air environments,” says Dmitry Lygin, chief engineer of the Petrofac JSD6000. “Among the many different factors, fuel consumption, sludge production, bilge and ballast water discharges represent critical areas that can have a negative impact on the marine environment if not properly managed.”

As preparations for the installations progress, Petrofac is satisfied with the broad technical guidance provided by the Alfa Laval technical and sales team. Once the Petrofac JSD6000 is in operation, Lygin and his team foresee continued cooperation with Alfa Laval in areas such as troubleshooting, spare parts and remote monitoring.

The Petrofac JSD6000, which will be available for operations in 2017, will offering a combination of S-lay and J-lay pipe-laying features with heavy lifting capabilities of 5000-tonne. The vessel will be deployed internationally in construction and installation projects for Petrofac clients.
