When your drilling rig’s production equipment operates 24/7 at 6,500 feet below the ocean’s surface, it’s a significant challenge to deliver continuous, clean power in that environment. OneSubsea’s incoming power was extremely dirty and a constant threat to its sensitive equipment and the ability to keep up and running.
The company’s goal was an uninterruptible power system (UPS) that could provide the “three Rs” — reliability, runtime, and the ability to review operating parameters. Their ideal solution would also include extended backup capabilities and the option of monitoring the UPS and incoming power. See how the Eaton 5PX fulfilled every requirement, and more, in a single “seaworthy” solution.
