OE 2015: ABB to focus on production efficiency

Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UK – ABB will showcase new technology and will deliver a series of technical talks at Offshore Europe on Sept. 8-11.

The company has developed two new products, ABB InSight and X-Wave, that have been designed in response to the industry’s growing need to maximize cost reduction while increasing production efficiency and maintaining safety.

ABB InSight is the first-of-its-kind crawler inspection robot which reduces down time, inspection costs, and risks of secondary damage. Fitted with five cameras, the device is used to crawl in the air gap between the stator and rotor of a motor or generator to visually inspect its status without needing to be removed. 

The X-Wave is a cost-effective, accurate motion compensation system. The advanced universal device has been designed for subsea and well intervention winch systems and continuously adapts to changing dynamics.

The company is also hosting a series of technical talks that respond to key industry issues: production efficiency, cost reduction, and support during late life and decommissioning. The 20-minute talks will be presented hourly on the ABB stand every day during the event.

Other stand attractions include the chance to experience a virtual reality tour of an oil and gas facility using Oculus Rift technology; a 3D flythrough of the company’s offerings. There will also be many demonstrations illustrating how integrated operations technology can be fully exploited offshore.

ABB is exhibiting at stand 3E 160.
