ABB Distributing Power Through Big Contracts
ABB, a power and automation technology group, has received several orders collectively worth US$42 million (€31.5 million) to provide power supply infrastructure and equipment for several floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels.
The vessels will produce crude oil off the coast of Brazil, and will be operated by several oil and gas producers, with Petrobras as the end customer. The orders were booked during the third quarter of 2010.
The contracts include the delivery of a complete electrical module (E-House) with complete power distribution systems to Brazilian oil and gas consortium QUIP, for installation on new Petrobras FPSO P-63 (Papa-Terra field). QUIP and BW Offshore will initially operate the vessel, which will later be operated by Petrobras. In addition, ABB will supply an electrical module to control the heating system for Technip’s Risers on the Petrobras FPSO P-63 (Papa-Terra field).
ABB will also supply an E-House with complete power distribution to SBM Offshore for the FPSO Cidade de Paraty and power supply and distribution equipment to SBM for an upgrade to FPSO Cidade de Anchieta.
