ABB completes e-houses for FLNG facility

ABB has completed two single lift prefabricated electrical structures – or e-houses – which will be installed on a floating liquified natural gas (FLNG) facility, allowing for the use of subsea fields that were previously deemed uneconomical.

The installation of the five-story e-house will take place on Petronas’ second FLNG facility moored at the Rotan gas field, off the Malaysian coast.

The facility has incorporated the latest technologies adapted to corrosive offshore environments and will include transformers, switchboards, motor-control centres and ABB’s Process Power Manager that ensures reliable and stable electricity supply to the FLNG facility.

“ABB’s long history of pioneering new technologies and expertise in the automation field is a perfect match for the floating LNG market,” ABB Managing Director for Oil, Gas and Chemicals Per Erik Holsten said.

“From concept to realisation, our engineered solution is one of the optimised factors that allow oil and gas companies to exploit fields that are traditionally deemed as uneconomical.

“The project is also a testimonial of our commitment to stakeholders on safety, quality and customer satisfaction, irrespective of the magnitude of the project.”
