Product Details Supplier Info More products

ABB will be showcasing its offering for oil and gas applications at Offshore Europe 2009 on stand 663, from 8-11 September 2009 in Aberdeen.

Visitors to the stand will see a comprehensive selection of the latest ABB products for both surface and sub-surface applications, including several new developments.

The company will demonstrate how these products can be used either as stand-alone instruments or as part of integrated systems delivering total automation, safety, telecommunications, electrical and power capabilities within an offshore environment.

Equipment on display will include examples from across ABB’s portfolio of products for automation, control and safety, drives and motors, low-voltage products and systems, and instrumentation.

The stand will also feature the full range of ABB power and automation services for offshore applications, including its specialist Engineering Services team.

A key feature of the stand will be ABB System 800xA advanced process control system.

The system offers a range of control functions as well as the ability for offshore operators to gather and integrate management information for improving the efficiency and productivity of their facilities.

Also on display will be ABB’s latest SIL3-rated safety system.

The system offers a wealth of features aimed at ensuring the total safety of processes and operatives.

The ABB medium-voltage drives business will be using the show to introduce the ACS2000 air-cooled general-purpose AC drive.

The ACS2000 provides motor control for a wide range of applications within the oil and gas sector such as pumps, fans and compressors.

It is designed for easy installation, fast commissioning and efficient maintenance, reducing the total cost of ownership.

Also on display will be examples of ABB’s low-voltage AC motors for hazardous areas.

Suitable for variable speed drives, these motors comply with all the relevant standards and protection types used in the oil and gas industry.

Visitors will be able to learn how ABB drives and motors can help them achieve the highest levels of reliability, availability and efficiency, resulting in energy savings of up to 50 per cent, reduced CO2 emissions and reduced maintenance costs.

ABB representatives will explain how these benefits can be further enhanced where ABB takes single source responsibility for complete drive systems; encompassing everything from installation through to safety standards compliance.

Also on display will be the ABB MNS 3.0 range of fully type-tested modular Motor Control Centres.

The latest design features a rear cable access solution up to Form 4 Type 7 together with a fully type-tested Busbar system and arc fault containment design to IEC 61641.

The MNS 3.0 also offers withdrawable and fixed starter types with a range of intelligent and conventional control options.

ABB’s instrumentation business will be showing the latest examples of its differential pressure (DP) flow meters, widely used in oil and gas applications worldwide.

Specific products from the ABB DP flow range on show will be the Orimaster and Torbar flowmeters, plus examples of its subsea meters.

Other products from ABB instrumentation will include field devices for measuring and monitoring temperature and pressure, plus process recorders and controllers.

Visitors to the stand will also be able to discover ABB’s range of professional engineering services for complex and high hazard process industries.

ABB has a team of engineering specialists with operational experience who can advise on the latest technical solutions that can help users transform the integrity and reliability of their production facilities.

Another element of stand 663 will be ABB’s full range of power and automation services, enabling plant operators to maximise productivity and minimise lifecycle costs.

The ABB portfolio of services encompasses everything from field service, support services and spare parts, through to evolution planning, consulting and asset optimisation.
