Unlocking Potential Value with Subsea Technology
Karstein Kristiansen talks about subsea low power distribution upgrades for brownfield, suggests solutions, and benefits.
Upgrading or expanding an existing subsea production facility with more subsea consumers requires more electrical power to be distributed from surface to subsea.
Moving towards a more all-electric future on the seabed the request for more power to the seabed increases, and at the same time the quantity of subsea loads increases by introducing electrical actuators instead of hydraulic operated valves. Charging of Subsea drones would be another type of load introduced into existing subsea solutions.
The biennial ONS event was started in 1974 as a key meeting place for the energy industry around the northern sea. Continuously developing, ONS today represents a series of activities around the world. During the ONS event, more than 65 000 visitors from around 100 countries gather in Stavanger, Norway.
