Power solutions for cold stacking of rigs

Cold stacking

Oil & gas

Economically cold stack rig assets effectively

For drilling contractors who are considering reducing operating costs with cold stacking —our precise temperature control and power solutions could help you save costs and reduce your reactivation time.

Cold stacking your rigs with Aggreko allows you to:

  • Protect critical components of your significant capital assets
  • Significantly reduce rig operating costs when idle
  • Lower recommissioning costs and achieve faster recommissioning timelines - getting assets back to producing revenue quicker

We combine the expertise of our people with accessibility to our fleet of chillers, air handling units and air conditioners to deliver the most ideal and effective solution for each project.

When compared to desiccant-based humification, our mechanical refrigeration approach is more efficient at removing humidity in offshore environments as it tempers the space instead of adding heat. This also provides a 35-40% reduction in power capacity.

Scoping study

As part of this service we perform a scoping study to provide a detailed recommendation based on each projects specific needs.

  • Performed by our team of power equipment, airflow, temperature control, and dehumidification experts
  • Determines the target areas where conditioning is needed
  • Outlines the ideal dehumidification system design
  • Provides initial and operating cost estimates
  • Focused on minimising modifications, penetrations, and potential damage to the rig

Once commissioned, we will install the equipment and power infrastructure, maintain the installation, and own the service and warranty. Because we are focused on a very specific range of products - power, temperature control and air compressors – we have unrivalled technical expertise, equipment, skills and experience to deliver bespoke, efficient solutions for your project.
