Hitachi ABB Power Grids is a leading global manufacturer of liquid-filled and dry-type transformers specifically designed to meet the requirements of the oil and gas industry in offshore applications.
To ensure optimum performance at your offshore site, you have to know your equipment is functioning to perfection. Whether it is a floating production unit or a subsea unit, Hitachi ABB Power Grids can provide transformers that are environmentally safe and reliable, as well as resilient to the harsh marine environment.
Dry-type technology offers products that are entirely oil-free. A minimum of other flammable materials are used in the manufacturing process to drastically reduce the risk of fire thus increasing the security for offshore operators and to avoid any contamination in the transformer’s surroundings. The dry technology also offers maximum strength against thermal and mechanical stresses to withstand the harsh environment in the oil and gas complex.
Hitachi ABB Power Grids has a full range of subsea transformers designed up to 3000 meters of depth. The high pressure subsea environment presents unique challenges to seabed based compression and production systems. The designs of Hitachi ABB Power Grids subsea systems can be both wet and dry terminations. Our first production unit from 1998 is still in service.
