Subsea innovation

ABB subsea innovation developing with the industry

ABB has been involved in the development of subsea equipment and systems for three decades. Feasibility studies on these components began in 1984 and the first commercial transformer was delivered to a client in 1998. Since that time, we have delivered variable-speed drive systems and transformers to some of the largest and most advanced offshore developments in the world. 

ABB has delivered more than 200 electrical systems and 20 subsea transformers. We were the world’s first supplier of a commercial subsea transformer and subsea frequency converter and we are continually developing our subsea technology to meet our customers' evolving needs.
