Kongsberg Maritime broadens control system scope for North Sea Sverdrup project
Equinor Energy has commissioned Kongsberg Maritime to provide safety and automation systems for the Johan Sverdrup Phase 2 development in the Norwegian North Sea.
In 2014, Equinor (then Statoil) awarded the same contractor a project specific agreement that included front-end engineering design for the four Phase 1 field platforms.
The latest agreement includes delivery of SAS and digital technology for the new processing platform, due to start production in 2022.
In addition, Kongsberg Maritime will extend and modify systems already delivered for the field center, and supply further equipment to support three subsea production system tiebacks and power from shore at Haugsneset, near Haugesund.
The company’s overall scope for Johan Sverdrup Phase 2 includes process control, the subsea control unit, power distribution control, process shutdown, emergency shutdown, fire and gas systems, life cycle simulator, information management system, and OPC-UA data gateway.
