Shell chooses power supply

Shell Prelude floating liquefied natural gas project17 January 2014 – New York-listed Emerson Network Power has won a contract to provide the main un-interruptible power supply system for the Shell Prelude floating liquefied natural gas project.

The company will provide backup power systems for the project currently being constructed in Korea for deployment offshore Western Australia.

Emerson will provide standby power for critical process functions for more than 20 years.

The company was recently selected as the main automation contractor for the Prelude development.

The Prelude FLNG project offshore Western Australia is the first of its kind and is expected to be the first deployed in the field.

Shell is one of the early movers on FLNG technology and will develop the Prelude and Concerto gas fields using FLNG.
