ABB awarded contract from Statoil to provide the world's first subsea gas compression system to Åsgard gas field.


ABB joined Statoil in an extensive qualification program for the electrical system that powers subsea gas compressors through a 43 kilometer subsea cable from the variable speed drive on the FPSO for Åsgard gas field.


ABB delivers the world's most powerful subsea transformer at 20MVA, qualified for depths of 1000 meters, for the Ormen Lange gas field.


ABB delivers subsea electrical system with a 31km tie-back to Tyrihans gas field. ABB's systems power and control a 2.5 megawatt raw seawater injection pump from a topside placed variable speed drive, a world record at the time.


ABB delivers electricity through a DC (direct current) link originating 70 km away on land to a gas platform in the North Sea, helping avoid annual emissions of 230,000 tons of CO2 and 230 tons of NOX.


ABB launches Subsea Electrical Power Distribution System (SEPDIS™), the first subsea frequency converter in the world.


ABB is the first supplier in the world to provide a commercial subsea transformer. First commerical subsea transformer installed in 1998.


ABB enters the subsea industry in 1980
