Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) secures long-term gas supply in the desert with four Vorecons from Voith
The availability of the drive components is an important factor for ensuring the gas supply in Oman. The extremely high reliability of the Vorecon doesn't just reduce drive system downtimes, it also decreases associated costs. The compact Vorecon is much better suited to the extreme environmental conditions in the desert, such as heat and sand storms, if compared to other drive solutions. The Vorecon does its job reliably, even at temperatures of over 60 degrees Celsius and in potentially explosive areas – without the need for additional equipment. The Vorecon requires up to 70 % less space than comparable drive systems. This not only reduces overall system complexity, it also lowers investment costs. The quick and easy maintenance of the Vorecon represents another benefit for the operator. Overhaul intervals of eight years reduce operating costs whilst also maintaining high availability.
