N-hance increases BP’s overall offshore asset efficiency
BP came to AAF for support after poor air filtration provided by an existing high velocity bag system resulted in a catastrophic failure of GT2 on the Clair Platform. This was at a third of the design life of the engine and the root cause of the failure was inlet guide vane seizure and ultimately blade liberation.
A revolutionary new approach
BP was aware that AAF International had developed a new EPA E12 high velocity filtration solution. Critically, this could be installed within an existing high velocity housing and with no initial dP penalty. As a consequence of the gas turbine failure, BP approached AAF to determine if this new technology (N-hance® Performance Filtration) could be urgently deployed in time for the arrival of the replacement engine.
To discover what led BP to conclude that N-hance enabling improved reliability, considerable cost savings and helped to increase overall offshore asset efficiency on the Clair Platform please download the full case study.
