GE Oil & Gas Wins 2009 OTC Award

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

GE Oil & Gas has been awarded a "Spotlight on New Technology Award" by the Offshore Technology Conference for its next generation subsea electronics module, the VetcoGray SemStar5. 

The Spotlight on New Technology Award recognizes new and innovative technologies significantly impacting offshore exploration and production sectors. It is judged by an expert panel on five criteria: the technology should be new, innovative, proven, used in a broad range of applications, and have a significant impact on the industry.

The VetcoGray SemStar5 (previously codenamed SEM5) is a fifth generation Subsea Electronics Module for use in subsea production control systems. This product offers new levels of Open Architecture IP-enabled communication capabilities through the application of a truly modular design approach. The VetcoGray SemStar5 is designed to meet industry demands for standardization and expandability, while providing the infrastructure to support the higher bandwidth requirements of modern instrumentation and simultaneously offering ultra reliability.  This fifth generation module draws on VetcoGray’s more than 25 years of subsea electronics experience and over a century in electronics and communications.

The VetcoGray SemStar5 delivers open architecture communications access, modular TCP/IP backplane architecture, support for standard industry interfaces and obsolescence mitigation.  Enhanced reliability is achieved with thermal management and modeling integral to the design, on-board diagnostics and fault tolerant I/O. The mechanical construction will meet and exceed shock, vibration and temperature-cycle requirements of ISO 13628-6 2006.

The awards will be presented at the Reliant Park in Houston, Texas during OTC 2009, on Monday, May 4th at 4 p.m. Visit GE Oil & Gas at the OTC 2009, Booth # 1117.
