ABB’s Subsea technology won praise for saving electricity and cutting emissions
ABB has received a best practice award from consulting firm Frost & Sullivan in recognition of its subsea technology for energy industries to save electricity and cut emissions.
ABB won Frost & Sullivan’s 2022 Best Practice Award for Global Oil & Gas Automation Technology Innovation Leadership for the development and commercialization of its subsea power conversion and distribution system.
The company installs power pumps and compressors on the sea shore in locations close to reservoirs to facilitate power saving.
The technology is said to give oil and gas companies access to a reliable subsea power supply of 100 MW of power over distances of up to 600 kilometers at sea and 3,000 meters of water depth with little maintenance required despite operating under intense pressure. provides access to. extreme conditions.
According to Frost & Sullivan, ABB’s solution is like no other in the industry in terms of access and water depth levels, meeting the needs of specific applications and market segments, and its CAPEX and OPEX advantages over competitors. Huh.
“The convergence of automation and electrification is the key to reducing carbon emissions in the oil and gas sector. By powering pumps and compressors on the ocean floor close to the reservoir, our technology can significantly reduce energy consumption as well as power from shore. can reduce carbon emissions by using Told Brandon SpencerPresident of ABB Energy Industries.
“It took years and dedication of nearly 200 scientists and engineers from ABB and our partners to make this happen, and it is wonderful that Frost & Sullivan has recognized our collective achievement and pioneering technology through this award.”
