Wärtsilä Hamworthy Flare Gas Recovery
The Wärtsilä Hamworthy technology safely captures and handles flare gas, which can then be re-utilised for other purposes.
Flaring gas emits some 400 million tons of CO2 annually to the atmosphere, and has a notable impact on the environment.
Our Flare Gas Recovery System allows the previously flared gas to be available for re-utilisation as fuel or export gas re-injected, as feed for boilers, and for many other gas related applications.
The closing of the flare line during normal operations results in significantly decreased flare tip wear, allowing it to typically last for the lifetime of the field. The concept comprises flare header isolation equipment, a gas recovery system, and a reliable flare gas ignition system.
Our systems can be designed to meet the specific process conditions of the plant.
