Norwegians developing all-electric subsea pump

OneSubsea Processing has received NOK 8.6 million from the Research Council of Norway to develop an all-electric subsea pump for the offshore industry together with Equinor and NOV.

According to OneSubsea, in addition to evading fluid supply, the new development will benefit from high efficiency and low footprint, all contributing to reduced emissions.

The technology is said to follow the company’s electrification strategy and is expected to contribute to future solutions for offshore sustainable energy production, secure and maintain local technology competence, as well as increase the export of technology from Norway.

GCE Ocean Technology supported OneSubsea with project funding advice.

“The all-electric subsea pump project is being developed in line with our clients’ requirements. Equinor is co-funding the project and providing valuable input. Close collaboration with clients is vital in such developments, as it secures fit-for-purpose products and reduces time for market implementation,” said Andreas Fjellbirkeland, global sales manager at OneSubsea Processing.

“We appreciate the support which led to this successful award from the Research Council of Norway. We see great value in the expertise which is available within the GCE Ocean Technology clusters. Leveraging the experience and proficiency from different industry actors is important for sound and efficient execution of innovation projects.”
