Traditionally, offshore platforms generate their own electricity by burning fossil fuels to run onboard gas turbines and/or diesel-powered generating units, resulting in local pollution to the environment. As we move operations into the environmentally sensitive arctic regions, it's importan to lower our emissions.

ABB's solution is to supply offshore installations with electricity from the mainland using a power cable transmission system. By replacing costly onboard electrical generating systems burning natural gas or diesel fuel, a power-from-shore solution can eliminate platform CO2 emissions entirely. It also increases available space and reduces weight on the platform, and improves the working environment. In addition, cable systems are easier to maintain than generators.

In the TCC® the drilling waste is separated into three main components, mineral solids, base oil and water. The highly valuable drilling fluids are under influence of high temperature only for a few seconds, resulting in a very high quality of the recovered fluids which can be re-used in new drilling mud, while the mineral solids can be discharged to sea meeting the toughest discharge limits. With appropriate weather protection, the TCC® can be operated in harsh environments.

The TCC® is the only thermal desorption technology currently approved for use offshore.

The benefits for the customer:
- No skip and ship
- Less handling
- Less Crane lifts
- Less new fluids to be bought

OWL™ (Oil in Water Locator) is the world's smallest HLIF LiDAR. It can "fingerprint" oil, and thus receive a real-time identification of oil category and type (crude oil, hydraulic oil, etc.) on the spot, with no samples or lab analysis required. It can be used for optimization of clean up processes, post cleaning control and dispersant efficiency control.

The detector is weatherized to withstand harsh weather such as extreme cold and is well suited for arctic conditions. The system is fully autonomous and provides real time information, day and night, about oil in water. The system reacts specifically to oil molecules and is immune to weather induced false alarms.

Subsea automation is a complex business, partly because machines with different functions from different vendors have to be integrated into a single system, partly because more and more functions are being relocated to the bottom of sea.
The solution as ABB sees it where the entire processing plant – production, separation and storage – is relocated to the sea bed and the oil and gas is piped from there directly to onshore tanks.
This will bring customers more effective, reliable and flexible oil and gas production solutions and will enhance how production equipment on the seafloor is powered and controlled by applications on shore or platforms, lowering costs and enabling economically viable production at fields far from existing infrastructure and often in harsh environments.

The UPTIME AMC gangway facilitates transit from a floating vessel to a fixed or floating installation. The crew is protected from the elements and risks by using smaller crew transfer vessels are removed.

The gangway systems have environmental protection for the crew, heating of oil and machinery and operators, lights to operate in constant dusk or dark and camera systems for off-site supervision and control.

By using weatherproof gangways, crew can transit with little risk and effort from support vessel to an installation. The support vessel does not have to use smaller skiffs that are prone to icing, navigation challenges and less protection against the environment.

Multiconsult has established metocean design basis for over 150 locations along the coast of Norway. We have developed new and sophisticated methods for realistic representations of the environment to establish reliable metocean design basis in arctic environments.
The arctic represents large remote areas in a complex environment. The physical climate data in the arctic areas suitable for design is limited. However, we have identified an increasing number of parameters and phenomena in correlation.
Applying this knowledge is vital when establishing correct design basis for e.g. ice drift, spray icing, cold precipitation and snow drift. Combining this with the engineering process we get dependable assessments of the safety and reliability of the design as an integrated system.
