HOUSTON – Siemens has received two OTC Spotlight Awards.

The first is for the BlueVault lithium-ion battery-based energy storage solution. This is suited for both all-electric and hybrid (i.e., diesel-electric) power applications. The solution is specifically designed to help ensure continuity of power and minimize emissions on vessels and offshore drilling rigs.

The second is for the subsea power grid. This is said to transform field developments by extending tiebacks and allowing flexible subsea processing. It has subsea transformers, switchgear, variable speed drives, wet mate connectors, and a remote control and monitoring system.

Siemens is exhibiting at booth #4422.
