ABB, a power and automation technology group, has entered into a $100m agreement with Hyundai Heavy Industries for the deployment of electrical and telecommunications systems, which will enable Hyundai Heavy Industries to tackle its contractual obligations for EPC work on the Nasr Full Field Development roject by Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company. 

Peter Terwiesch, president of ABB Process Automation division, said: “ABB's extensive experience in offshore oil and gas field electrification ensures high reliability and minimises life-cycle costs, while trimming the oil fields' environmental footprint.

"This is another example of an order in line with our Next Level Strategy of business-led collaboration between our automation and power portfolios."

Comprised of power management, power-from-shore and telecoms systems, ABB’s technologies can help cut down on emissions, while improving working conditions with the reduction of noise levels.

Facilities covered by the contract will be powered by a 132kV AC subsea ring cable from Das Island, roughly 160km west of Abu Dhabi.

ABB’s power managed system is based on the company’s system 800xA extended automation control system. Integrating a network of transformers and switchgears, the system gives end-users the capability to oversee management of the entirety of the electrical installation in a centralised location.

Part of the package includes an intelligent asset management system capable of predictive maintenance of equipment.

Headed by ABB’s engineering services and project management team in Norway, the delivery of products is scheduled for the third quarter of 2016.
