Case Studies

MOV Emergency Distribution Board – North Sea Asset

Electon was contracted to resolve an issue on a North Sea asset where a number of MOV’s (Motor Operated Valves) were required to be operated during asset black start to allow the run up of the main generation. No existing Emergency MOV distribution board was installed on the asset. Electon designed and specified a new 3 Phase distribution board and sourced an existing power supply from an emergency switchboard to supply power to it, whilst carrying out all engineering design to ensure compliance with national, international and client standards. Thereby giving the asset the ability to run the MOV’s during black start and resolving the clients issues with the run up of the main generation. We also provided engineering input into the completion of design drawings and the procurement of the equipment for the work scope.
