Siemens to supply equipment to electrify Norway's Troll platforms
Germany's Siemens Energy has been hired to provide equipment for the partial electrification of the Troll B and full electrification of the Troll C platforms off Norway, the company said on September 9.
Siemens received a contract for the work from Aker Solutions, which won a contract from Equinor for the electrification project in February. The German company will supply equipment for electrical transmission, distribution and power management systems.
The project is expected to reduce annual CO2 emissions at Troll B and C by 500,000 metric tons, equivalent to 1% of all Norway's emissions. Nitrogen oxide emissions are also set to fall by 1,700 metric tons/year.
"Siemens Energy has been working in the Troll field for more than two decades and is proud to support Norway's ambitions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% through 2030, and by 80-95% through 2050," Siemens' senior vice president of industrial applications solutions, Jennifer Hooper, commented.
