Presserv is a specialized maintenance firm operating in the offshore oil and gas industry, offering the complete preservation of entire rigs and drill ships. The agreement means that ABB will maintain the onboard electrical systems on future projects, in effect giving the vessel owner a turnkey solution. Where it is available, ABB’s RDS will provide real time data on important factors like temperature and humidity to enable the upkeep of equipment. ABB’s Integrated Operations Centers will also monitor data produced by onboard equipment to anticipate any problems and to enable the swiftest and most efficient resumption of service.
ABB already offers its Stacking Care program that has seen significant uptake around the globe with a large number of drill ships in Korean shipyards utilizing the solution. Currently O&G vessels that are out of service can be warm stacked (ready to use but idle) whilst vessels that face longer term layoffs can be cold stacked (shutdown and stored).
“To team up with ABB with such a strong name in the electrification and automation side means that we can truly provide turn-key solutions for the customers,” says Kristian Høvring , Business Line Manager at Presserv.
