East Coast Oil and Gas Engineering (EC-OG) commercially launched the Subsea Power Hub at the Offshore Europe Conference and Exhibition in Aberdeen.
The Subsea Power Hub is an autonomous electrical power system which harnesses the energy within ocean currents to convert, store and deliver reliable electricity on demand.
The company installed and switched on the SPH at EMEC’s Shapinsay Sound test site in April this year.
EC-OG has secured support from the Oil & Gas Technology Centre for technology FEED work that the company is undertaking for a North Sea field trial focusing on the in place Subsea Power Hub (SPH) design, optimized deployment procedure and de-risking the installation and operational phases.
In the video, the winner of the Subsea UK 2017 award for ‘The Small Company of the Year’, explains what the SPH is all about.
