Assignment reference 1 from Subsea industry
ABB Offshore Systems designed, developed and delivered a high voltage subsea mate able electrical connector that made it possible to connect and disconnect the power supply from surface to the Framo subsea pump.
A purpose built flushing skid was also designed by ABB for installing and internal flushing
of the connector on the subsea pump structure, changing the sea water with di-electric oil.
The ABB Marine Electra Connector, MECON was successfully made up on the Troll Field during the summer 2000.
We were deeply involved in the project as Engineering Manager and detail designer of the MECON Flushing Skid, and followed the project through design, production, assembly and testing.
