Heatric wins Bergading heat exchanger contract

Heatric Ltd has been awarded a contract to supply its unique printed circuit heat exchangers (PCHEs) for the Bergading Central Processing Platform (CPP) in the North Malay Basin, Malaysia.

The platform is currently being constructed under an EPCIC contract awarded to Hyundai Heavy Industries of South Korea. The Heatric PCHEs will be part of a 20 000 t (topsides) installation which, once commissioned, will be fed by up to thirteen well-head platforms.

Heatric is to supply seven exchangers in all, including three designs of compression aftercooler and a gas/gas exchanger. Together they will weigh 150 t.

The core matrices of the after-coolers will be manufactured from Duplex stainless steel to increase resistance to corrosion from acid process gases. The design of the 30 t gas/gas exchanger will feature a pair of six-metre-long diffusion-bonded cores with direct glycol injection into each of the unit’s numerous flow channels.

The Heatric PCHEs will be delivered by 5 September 2015.
