ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, has won an order worth about $20 million from EMAS AMC, the deepwater services arm of Ezra Holdings Limited, to supply power cables for Statoil's Gudrun North Sea oil and gas field, located off the coast of Norway.
ABB will deliver 55 kilometers of 52 kilovolts (kV), three-core submarine cable with integrated optical fiber, which will facilitate the supply of 20 megawatts (MW) of electrical power from Statoil's Sleipner fields to the Gudrun field. The cable is designed to accommodate additional connections as required.
The installation will be carried out by EMAS AMC commencing in the third quarter of 2013 to enable oil and gas production at Gudrun, scheduled to begin in 2014.
