ABB announced today that its Extended Automation System 800xA has successfully passed an extensive technical evaluation by Shell Global Solutions, for potential future use in the oil company’s projects worldwide without further technical review. Shell tested the System 800xA core system, as well as its integrated System 800xA High Integrity SIS. (Safety Instrumented System)

Shell Global Solutions provides technical and operational support to Shell, which produces around 3.5 million barrels of oil equivalent a day and is active in more than 130 countries and territories worldwide.

The rigorous technical assessment process takes almost one year, and documents the product’s ability to perform against Shell’s detailed technical specifications. It also examines the system supplier’s project execution capabilities. As a result of the evaluation, ABB has been approved for use in Shell as a MAC/DCS supplier for System 800xA and System 800xA High Integrity (SIS).

“ABB’s System 800xA performed very well in wide range of simulated operating conditions during our assessment,” commented Audun Gjerde from Shell Global Solutions. “We found that it can integrate multiple systems and processes, while maintaining a high level of system security and process safety.”

Shell’s evaluation noted several strengths for System 800xA, including its ability to integrate process and power automation on a single platform with related integration and control of IEC61850 devices. This capability further enhances System 800xA’s fully integrated power management capability, and the ability to remotely access and control switchgear. This capability reduces commissioning time, while allowing for faster online modifications during operation.

System 800xA’s ability to integrate multiple control and other plant systems, to enable control of several plants from one central location, was another key capability cited in the evaluation. Integral asset monitors provide constant visibility to the operations personnel, thereby reducing downtime through the use of intelligent field and electrical devices. One of the major advantages of this capability is the reduced cost associated with reduced maintenance schedules.

System 800xA’s engineering tools were also noted as a unique strength. These tools promote consistency, reuse and redeployment of engineering configurations and strategies across numerous projects, as well as maintainability of delivered systems throughout the entire lifecycle.

ABB’s Process Automation division delivers integrated automation solutions for control, plant optimization, and industry-specific application knowledge and services to help process industry customers worldwide improve their energy efficiency and meet their critical business needs in the areas of operational profitability, capital productivity, risk management and global responsibility. These industries include oil and gas, power, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, pulp and paper, metals, minerals, cement, marine and turbocharging.

ABB (abb.com) is a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve their performance while lowering environmental impact. The ABB Group of companies operates in around 100 countries and employs about 117,000 people.
