March 2016 Project:

Compressor Vibration Mitigation
Compressor Vibration Mitigation
Challenge:

A large integral gas compressor onboard a drilling platform in the Cook Inlet was experiencing excessive vibration issues which prevented further use. Our purpose was to investigate the root cause of excessive vibration and determine a solution to mitigate the vibration.

Resolution:

Our engineering team evaluated the system and determined there was unseen structural damage to the mounting system underneaththe compressor. A new robust attachment system was designed that could be installed with minimal down time while the compressor remained in place.
