(Click to Enlarge)

ABB won a $110 million contract from Eni to build a power link between the Goliat platform in the Barents Sea and the Norwegian power grid. The platform will be partly electrified by a 66-mile (106-kilometer) subsea power cable. The insulated power cable will be the longest, most powerful cable ever delivered for an offshore application, and it will supply alternating current power from the mainland grid in Norway to the Goliat platform. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2013, when the Goliat field is planned to commence production. Located on Production Licenses 229 and 229B in the Barents Sea is the Goliat field, in waters measuring 1,312 feet (400 meters) deep. Eni, which holds a 65% interest, operates the field; Statoil holds the remaining 35% interest.
