Integrated Control of Two Platforms
When ONGC decided to link two existing oil platforms with a 300 meter bridge, Solar made the complex electrical connection without interrupting power for platform operations.
Each platform had its own power station consisting of Solar® gas turbine generators and control panels. By installing a slave panel in parallel with an existing control panel, Solar was able to pre-wire the connection, energize the slave panel, and then energize the connection without cutting power to the platforms.
A new Solar micrognd controller provides integrated control of the unified system.
