Emerson Network Power, a US-based Emerson business, says it has been selected as the main uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems provider for Shell’s Prelude FLNG project, the world’s first floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) project, currently under construction in Korea for deployment to the Browse Basin off the coast of Western Australia.

Emerson Network Power explain that they will help provide reliable standby power for critical process functions, such as the main automation systems, fire and gas detection systems, and telecommunications. Emerson’s Chloride industrial-grade UPS systems are designed to supply backup power in the most demanding environments for a lifetime of more than 20 years.

“Mission-critical facilities on Shell’s FLNG facility require the highest levels of availability, and backup power supplies are key components of making sure infrastructure like this remains always-on,” said Scott Barbour, business leader for Emerson Network Power. “This is a great opportunity for us to join our colleagues at Emerson Process Management to put some of our best solutions and services into practice, in an extraordinary application.”

In 2010, Emerson Process Management, another global business of Emerson, was selected as the Main Automation Contractor for the Shell Prelude development.
