TrustLube supplies its system for Prelude FLNG

TrustLube said it has delivered its system to SBM Offshore for Shell’s Prelude FLNG, which is being built at Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in Geoje, South Korea.

The TrustLube system was completely engineered and produced at the Oud Gastel location in The Netherlands, the company said in a statement.

The system consists of an explosion proof grease cabinet to lubricate the radial wheel, axial boogie and axial boogie guiding of the world’s largest turret. Stainless steel framed grease applicators are used to connect the metering devices to dispense the grease equally on the wheel surfaces. TrustLube’s system is able to adapt its greasing cycle to the wind direction.

With the TrustLube system one metering unit per grease point is used. All metering units are working independently of each other regardless temperature, tube length and viscosity of the lubricant.

The quantity of grease remains consistent regardless outside temperature and pump running time. The system is completely hermetically sealed. No dirt, seawater or sand can enter the system.

The complete system is constructed in stainless steel AISI 316 quality.

Once complete, Prelude FLNG will operate in a remote basin around 200 kilometres off Australia’s north-west coast, for around 25 years. It will produce about 3.6 million tonnes of LNG a year.
