Through close support from Sensia – Rockwell’s joint venture with SLB – and cooperation with the P-79 vessel’s builder Saipem/DSME, Rockwell Automation technology and Sensia solutions were selected for their proven track records in the oil and gas industry, as well as for their robust interconnectivity.

“We are specialists, both in terms of technology and domain expertise, in the supply of automation and safety solutions for the oil and gas industry,” explains Barry Elliot, vice president, global industry, Rockwell Automation. “Typical Floating Production, Storage, and Offloading (FPSO) vessels comprise 15 to 20 major process modules, most of which rely on our solutions for their automation, process and information capabilities, and P-79 is no different. By leveraging our control solutions at the higher level, even greater performance can be extracted, and greater yield realized.”
