International technology company ABB has signed an agreement with Malaysian firm Yinson to provide electrical, control and telecommunication equipment and services for a new floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel in the Marlim 2 oil field.

Under the agreement, ABB will deliver complete electrical, control and telecommunication solutions, including electrical house to drive productivity and efficiency onboard the new Anna Nery FPSO.

The Marlim oil field is located in the northeastern part of Campos Basin roughly 110km offshore Rio de Janeiro, in water depths ranging from 650m to 1,050m.

Yinson secured the contract to convert the 2002-built crude oil tanker, lead operations and conduct maintenance of the Anna Nery FPSO.

According to ABB, the vessel is planned to operate on the field for more than 25 years.

In October last year, Yinson secured two letters of intent (LoI) worth $5.4bn from Petrobras for the Marlim revitalisation project.

Yinson Offshore Production CEO Flemming Grønnegaard said: “We are committed to delivering this FPSO in a lean, efficient, timely manner, and we believe that ABB’s technology solutions and experience on numerous other projects of this nature will enable us to achieve this.

“Marlim 2 is an important project for Yinson, and given ABB’s global experience and expertise, we have confidence in ABB as partners for FPSO Anna Nery.”

ABB noted that it would be responsible for the integration engineering on the project, integrating all the production modules onboard the FPSO into a combined integrated safety and control system (ICSS).

It will utilise its system named ‘Select Input / Output (IO)’ for the offshore project.

ABB Energy Industries managing director Brandon Spencer said: “We have a strong heritage in delivering electrical, control and telecommunication packages for FPSOs both in Brazil and worldwide from our global lead centres in Singapore and Norway. In deploying ABB Ability System 800xA on this FPSO, we can help Yinson streamline project execution and their operations.

“This will enhance overall equipment effectiveness, in turn providing key data insights that will help make real-time decisions on performance.”

In April, ABB unveiled a virtual reality-based system to aid workers in the maintenance and operation of machinery, which aims to improve efficiency and safety across industrial sectors.
