Rubin did the studies for the functional concept of a subsea nuclear gas compressor station to be used on subsea trunklines running from offshore production areas to shore.
The study was done with the account for the results of R&D conducted by Russian defence industry companies for power plants on nuclear submarines and naval ships. The extensive experience with nuclear submarine equipment designed to ensure required strength, reliability and fault tolerance under multiple dynamic overloads was taken into consideration.
The design solutions implemented in the station ensure
The design concept encompasses systems and equipment for continuous independent operation as well as propulsion systems to manoeuvre the submerged station after a neutral buoyancy is achieved. Accommodation and service spaces are available for regular visits of the maintenance personnel to the operating station.
