ZURICH, Switzerland – ABB has won a $24 million order to supply electrical power and propulsion systems for two next generation Ramform vessels, capable of 3D seismic data acquisition for sea bottom resource exploration.
The ships will be constructed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, and delivered to Norway’s Petroleum Geo-Services ASA. Delivery is scheduled for 2013.
ABB will supply an advanced complete power and diesel electric system package, consisting of medium voltage switchboards including power management systems, generators, transformers, frequency converters and motors. The systems will provide reliable and fuel efficient propulsion for the ships.
