Emerson Network Power, an Emerson subsidiary, has been selected as the main provider of uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems for Shell’s Prelude FLNG (floating liquefied natural gas) project.
Emerson Network Power will help provide reliable standby power for critical process functions, including the main automation systems, fire and gas detection systems and telecommunications. The company’s Chloride industrial-grade UPS systems are designed to supply backup power in challenging environments for a lifetime of over 20 years.
Scott Barbour, business leader for Emerson Network Power, commented: “Mission-critical facilities on Shell’s FLNG facility require the highest levels of availability, and backup power supplies are key components of making sure infrastructure like this remains always-on. This is a great opportunity for us to join our colleagues at Emerson Process Management to put some of our best solutions and services into practice, in an extraordinary application.”
In 2010, Emerson Process Management, another Emerson business, was selected as the Main Automation Contractor for the Shell Prelude development.
