Baker Hughes has been awarded a contract by Modec, a supplier of offshore floating platforms, to supply gas technology equipment for the $9bn (43.6bn reais) BM-C-33 project in the Brazilian pre-salt Campos area.

Being developed by Equinor with partners Repsol Sinopec Brasil and Petrobras, the BM-C-33 development plan includes a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit.

Modec is responsible for the delivery of the BM-C-33 FPSO unit, which is expected to have production capacity of 16 million cubic metres of gas per day.

Under the contract, Baker Hughes will supply turbomachinery equipment including LM2500 gas turbine generators and steam turbine generator technology.

The turbomachinery equipment will be used for a combined cycle power generation solution, which is due to be installed in the BM-C-33 FPSO vessel, to reduce the carbon footprint.

Baker Hughes industrial and energy technology executive vice-president Ganesh Ramaswamy said: “This order is a testament of our established track record when it comes to technology for FPSO vessels. It also strengthens our relationship with Modec and is a very important milestone in our collaboration with Equinor and its partners.
