I OFFSHORE ASSET ELECTRIFICATION
A key tool in reducing the emissions of offshore facilities is the electrification of offshore facilities, replacing onboard hydrocarbon fuelled power generation with power from renewable, or lower emission energy sources.
Investigation of offshore electrification options requires a multi-disciplinary approach, considering the impact on facility heat management, power import constraints, emissions analysis, and reliability assessments. The breadth of skills and expertise offered by Crondall's team is ideally placed to evaluate electrification opportunities.
Crondall Energy's offshore electrification studies are typically completed as a multi-disciplinary exercise, covering the following key scope items:
Emissions benchmarking, using the ZETA tool to assess the impact of electrification initiatives on the GHG emissions of the project development.
Power import analysis, assessing imported power availability, losses, transformer equipment required and key interfaces, such as cabling and power swivels.
Facility design configuration, assessing the impact of utilising imported power on the offshore facilities and proposing design configuration changes to make the facilities more energy and heat efficient.
Cost estimation to support investment decisions.
