ABB has been awarded a contract by Offshore Frontier Solutions Pte Ltd to provide a comprehensive electrical system and digital solutions for ExxonMobil’s Errea Wittu floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel. Offshore Fronter Solutions is a joint venture between Modec and Toyo Engineering to compete for large-scale FPSO projects. Exxon hired Modec to deliver the vessel for the Uaru project.

ExxonMobil’s fifth FPSO in Guyana, operating 200 kilometers off the coast, will integrate Snoek, Mako, and Uaru resources in the Stabroek block, with a projected 2026 start and initial capacities of 250,000 barrels of oil per day and 540 million standard cubic feet per day for gas treatment.

The order, booked in Q2 2023, marks the 14th collaboration between ABB and MODEC on FPSO developments across South America.

“The FPSO market in South America is growing exponentially driven by the fact that floating platforms are a more cost-efficient, quicker, mobile, and sustainable solution to traditional rigs,” said Brandon Spencer, President of ABB Energy Industries. “Guyana is at the forefront of this growth, and we are thrilled to contribute our technology to help bring this fifth development for ExxonMobil in Guyana to market quickly and efficiently. The country is already seeing the benefits to its GDP, with its government announcing significant investment into advancing its healthcare sector, education and critical infrastructure as a result.”

ABB said it will deliver a topside and hull electrical system to the vessel through a pre-built ABB eHouse modular substation, which reduces risk exposure and costs by commissioning, installing and testing all electrical systems at the shipyard before deployment offshore, and enables faster speed to market. In addition, the company said it will supply power management solutions that will serve to optimize energy efficiency and asset availability of all electrical equipment supplied.
