SAN ANTONIO– Siemens is featuring its Subsea Power Grid technology at the Subsea Tieback Forum & Exhibition currently being held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas.

The company says that future subsea processing facilities will grow to include several electrically-driven pumps and gas compressors to transport oil and gas over very long distances.

Working together with the subsea industry, Siemens says it will offer robust Subsea Power Grids for variable-speed drives supplied from an onshore power plant or platform.

A milestone on the road to large-scale seabed processing facilities, the Siemens Subsea Power Grid is designed to operate in a depth of 3,000 m with total reliability, withstanding extreme pressure and harsh temperatures.

Siemens says the grid is based on proven high-quality industrial components, including transformers, switchgears and variable-speed drives that it has developed. The power components allow an installation on a common base frame on the seabed. All components within the Siemens Subsea Power Grid are retrievable.
