ABB Wins Order Worth $20M

Wednesday, August 04, 2010

ABB won an order worth $20m to provide complete power systems, drilling drive and propulsion systems for a new deep water drilling rig to be built by Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) at its shipyard in South Korea. The end customer is Brazilian ship owner Petroserv, who will operate the drilling rig for Petrobras. The rig is scheduled to be commissioned by early 2012.

ABB will supply complete electrical systems for the semi-submersible drilling rig, which will be used for oil and gas exploration drilling. The delivery includes power generation and the high and low voltage distribution systems, the drilling drive system, the propulsion drive system, as well as related engineering services.

In addition to supporting the short delivery schedule, ABB’s scope of supply was specifically selected to improve equipment reliability, efficiency and availability, securing a stable supply of power throughout all rig systems.

This project is ABB’s fourth Semi submersible drilling vessel project for DMSE; ABB delivered the same scope of supply for the Petroserv #1 rig, which also operates for Petrobras in Brazil.

The new contract with Petroserv demonstrates that the global strategy, along with ABB's core concept for simplicity as a driver in design, commissioning and operation phase for marine customers, can succeed as well in new markets, like Brazil, as they have with owners in U.S.A, Europe and Asia.
