BP have appointed ABB as one of its global Main Electrical Contractors (MEC) for the provision of engineering, procurement and construction of electrical equipment for BP Upstream Major Capital Projects.
The new agreement reflects a strategic collaboration between ABB and BP, with ABB committed to delivering innovation, substantial savings, improved scheduling and lower risk as a valued long-term partner. ABB’s global MEC frame agreement is effective for an initial term of five years.
“Adding value to our customers is at the heart of everything we do. Our goal is to enable our customers to lead – through safer, more productive and energy efficient operations – by utilizing our deep domain expertise, industry leading technologies, and engineering services,” said Peter Terwiesch, President, Industrial Automation, ABB.
“This important global frame agreement with BP will further exemplify our resolve to help major oil and gas projects make savings, reduce risk and enhance efficiencies into the future.”
As a global MEC partner, ABB can assume full responsibility for the design and engineering, procurement and supply, project management, installation, commissioning and on-time start up for overall electrical systems on BP projects that may be awarded to ABB under this global frame agreement.
With an evolving energy mix, demand for safe, secure and reliable power continues to be vital. ABB Customer World (ACW) is showcasing how ABB is connecting, leading and learning in writing the future across industries such as oil and gas.
