    Impact of Subsea Processing Power Distribution: Subsea Switchgear Module A Key Enabling Component in Subsea Installations

    Impact of Subsea Processing Power Distribution: Subsea Switchgear Module A Key Enabling Component in Subsea Installations    In recent years, the offshore industry has seen a clear trend for production facilities to be installed on the seabed. Such a system is particularly suited for challenging environments such as deepsea and artic, and provides an efficient and economical subsea-to-beach solution which eliminates the need for a floating production unit. There are several advantages of installing process equipment close to the source of the product. Up until now, each item of process equipment was powered from the surface. This is reliable but very costly. In order to reduce the cost of the power supply but not reduce its
    reliability, it was decided to place the electrical distribution system also on the sea bed. Thus the electrical equipment will be located near the load center which is common practice on all on-shore designs.
