Aker Solutions has won an engineering achievement award at the OTC conference in Houston for its El-drive subsea electric actuators.
The newly developed electric actuators are designed to operate valves in subsea production and processing systems.
The Woelfel Best Mechanical Engineering Achievement Award was handed out May 2 by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
“Electric control of subsea infrastructure will enable a more cost-effective, dynamic and sustainable development of subsea oil and gas fields,” said chief technology officer Hervé Valla at Aker Solutions. “We are honored to be recognized for our work in this area.”
