Bridge power gap during turbine downtime
Global oil and gas company, ExxonMobil has two 10 MW turbines on their oil production site in Nigeria.
One of their turbines suffered a breakdown and parts for the repair weren’t readily available. That left ExxonMobil with a power shortfall if they chose to wait for the parts.
They reviewed their options and a short-term power solution seemed to be the ideal answer. Now all they needed to do was choose a reliable, experienced partner.

Reliable power to guarantee power supply
Aggreko were chosen to bridge the power gap and we devised a solution that included 10 MW of turn-key power. This comprised the installation, commissioning operation and maintenance.
This solution ensured the customer could find the time to repair the turbine without suffering any production downtime caused by a power failure and shortfall.
ExxonMobil enjoys uninterruptible power
The flexibility of using multiple smaller modular Aggreko power units instead of just one turbine, has given the customer greater redundancy and enabled them to avoid any more total loss of power incidents that impact their production schedule meaning they stay on track to deliver on revenue and profit.
