Offshore staff

RUEIL MALMAISON, France – Schneider Electric (NYSE Euronext Paris:SU) has successfully qualified on schedule all equipment for the Controls Power Distribution Units (CPDU) for the Åsgard subsea compression project.

The electronic components in the CPDU had to pass the Technology Qualification Program which refers to the ISO 13628-6 standard relative to subsea production control systems. The ISO standards specify shock, vibration, and temperature tests.

Schneider Electric designed a specific generic test bench for all equipment from the qualification process to the environmental stress screening tests for each individual component of the CPDU.

Åsgard, designed and built by Aker Solutions (Oslo:AKSO)  and operated by Statoil (OSE:STL;NYSE:STO), is off the coast of Norway at a depth of 300 m (984 ft).
