  • Business & Finance

ABB has received orders, worth around $100 million, from Hyundai Heavy Industries for electrical and telecommunication systems under the contract for EPC Work of Nasr Full Field Development Project off the coast of the United Arab Emirates.

The facilities covered by the referred contract will be powered by a 132 kilovolt (kV) AC subsea ring cable from Das Island, about 160 kilometers west of Abu Dhabi.

“ABB’s extensive experience in offshore oil and gas field electrification ensures high reliability and minimizes life-cycle costs, while trimming the oil fields’ environmental footprint,” said ABB Process Automation division President Peter Terwiesch. “This is another example of an order in line with our Next Level Strategy of business-led collaboration between our automation and power portfolios.”

The power management system is based on ABB’s System 800xA Extended Automation control system.

ABB will supply 28 bays of compact 132 kV GIS for one onshore and two offshore platform installations as well as medium voltage products including 33 kV gas-insulated switchgear and 11 kV and 6.6 kV air-insulated switchgear, said the company in a press release.

Additionally, ABB will supply multiple types of transformers, shunt reactors and associated equipment ranging from 500 kVA to 100 MVA.

ABB will also provide a complete and fully integrated telecommunication system to the Al Nasr super complex for internal and external communication and field security. Key products are computer networks, electronic personnel tracking, a camera system, radar, public address and general alarm systems, access control, a telephone system, radios and a transmission system between platforms.

The project will be executed by ABB’s engineering services and project management team in Norway, with equipment manufactured by ABB in the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany and Norway. Delivery is scheduled for the third quarter of 2016.

The scope of supply includes design, engineering, supply, installation and commissioning.
