Automation company ABB has signed a new frame agreement to deliver safety and automation systems across Equinor’s installed base and greenfield projects worldwide, helping to minimise cost, schedule and risk
The agreement continues to be a collaboration of more than three decades, with ABB supporting petroleum industry company Equinor to consider innovative opportunities in an era of greener, cleaner energy and increasing automation.
The agreement will see ABB leverage its automation and digital solutions, including simulation technologies and processes, to enable cost savings, increased productivity and safety for brownfield and greenfield installations internationally.
Kevin Kosisko, managing director, ABB Energy Industries, “With our deep domain expertise across the energy industries, ABB is uniquely positioned to assist Equinor in extending the lifetime of its existing installed base, encompassing 19 offshore and four onshore sites around the world.”
ABB has supported Equinor in projects and operations since the mid-1980s ranging from providing integrated safety and automation, electrical and telecommunication systems to the new Aasta Hansteen gas field, to supplying electrical and telecommunication systems for both the Mariner project in the North Sea and the Gina Krog project on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
ABB was the main automation and electrical contractor for the Peregrino project, offshore of Brazil, and is delivering an integrated ABB Ability safety and automation system to the Johan Castberg floating production storage and offloading project.
