Switzerland-based ABB has won a sub-contract worth $100m for electrical and telecommunication systems at Abu Dhabi’s Nasr full-field development.

ABB was awarded the contracts by South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), which is handling the largest engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) package on the development for project owner Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (Adma-Opco).

The contract consists of

  • power management,
  • power-from-shore and
  • interconnected telecoms systems.

The facilities covered by the referred contract will be powered by a 132kV AC subsea ring cable from Das Island, located about 160 kilometres west of Abu Dhabi.

The project will be executed by ABB’s engineering services and project management team in Norway, with equipment manufactured by ABB in the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany and Norway. Delivery is scheduled for the third quarter of 2016.

ABB said it has supported the Nasr full-field development project from the concept stage, through front-end engineering and design (feed) and now the construction phase.
