SCHENECTADY, New York  GE Power Conversion was recently awarded a contract from Keppel Shipyard, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sembcorp Marine, for the design, supply and delivery of two electrical modules for the Petrobras P-80 and P-83 FPSO vessels that will operate in Brazil.

The integrated electrical module to be provided by GE Power Conversion is considered the “heart” of the platform, as it provides all the distributed energy to provide electric power for the entire FPSO operations, in addition to housing equipment that controls the vessel. GE Power Conversion's scope of supply includes medium-voltage and low-voltage switchboards, motor control centers, high power transformers and uninterruptible power supply for both P80 and P-83 vessels. 

Delivery of both P-80 and P-83 will be led by GE Power Conversion’s team based in Singapore. The team includes engineering, project management and commissioning capability and leadership, with GE Power Conversion having long-standing experience working in Singapore’s maritime and offshore sectors.  

GE Power Conversion’s Latin America team will provide local engineering, project management and supply chain support, based in Belo Horizonte. The team in Brazil brings expertise developed during previous delivery of electrical modules to six of Petrobras’ FPSOs operating in the presalt area, including P-75 and P-77 in the Búzios Field.
