Power-from-shore milestone achieved


A power-from-shore to off shore oil platform project will save the emissions equivalent to 70,000 cars


ABB is supplying


high voltage direct current (HVDC) converters for electrifi cation of the fi rst phase of the Johan Sverdrup fi eld development project.


New fully coated isolation gasket


Garlock Pipeline Technologies (GPT) has launched the Evolution. The new isolation gasket features easier installation, tight sealing, high-temperature operation, no permeation, hydrotesting isolation, fi re-safety and chemical-resistance.


Featuring a thinner design, the new product minimises


the diffi culties often encountered when attempting to install thicker gaskets. The full-coating encapsulation allows it to be hydrotested and left in the pipeline with the same isolation properties as before it was tested.


The HVDC project is ahead of schedule, and recently achieved an important milestone. “The good cooperation between operator Statoil, engineering, procurement and construction contractor Aibel, and ABB has contributed to excellent progress in the project.


The onshore converter station is now online and ready for use,” says Borghild Lunde, senior vice president, Oil, Gas and Chemicals for ABB in Norway. It is a large amount of power that will be transmitted to the off shore fi eld when in operation, which will mainly come from renewable energy sources such as Norwegian hydropower. For the fi rst phase of the Johan Sverdrup off shore fi eld development, the HVDC- system supplied by ABB has a capacity of 100MW.
