RELIABLE OIL AND GAS EXTRACTION
Safety and productivity are key priorities on drilling platforms. All equipment needs to work under tough offshore conditions with absolute reliability and without unnecessary downtimes. It has to meet stringent fire protection requirements and not put a strain on the local ecosystem. Oil-filled transformers therefore have to be totally sealed. All installations also need a low weight and compact design. Inductive drives for controlling the platform and pumps create demand for reactive power and harmonics, which put a strain on the grid and equipment. Compensation systems and filters are innovative solutions which allow many systems to be made more compact. Due to environmental concerns, platforms are increasingly supplied from the shore using high-voltage DC transmission cables (HVDCT). Although this requires a converter station to be installed, it saves space because there is no need for a diesel generator or transformer.
