ABB and BP celebrate global MEC frame agreement

BP has appointed ABB as one of its global Main Electrical Contractors (MEC) for the provision of engineering, procurement and construction of electrical equipment for BP Upstream Major Capital Projects.

The new agreement reflects a strategic collaboration between ABB and BP, with ABB committed to delivering innovation, substantial savings, improved scheduling and lower risk as a valued long-term partner. ABB’s global MEC frame agreement is effective for an initial term of five years.

“Adding value to our customers is at the heart of everything we do,” said Peter Terwiesch, President, Industrial Automation, ABB. “Our goal is to enable our customers to lead — through safer, more productive and energy-efficient operations — by utilising our deep domain expertise, industry-leading technologies and engineering services.

“This important global frame agreement with BP will further exemplify our resolve to help major oil and gas projects make savings, reduce risk and enhance efficiencies into the future.”

As a global MEC partner, ABB can assume full responsibility for the design and engineering, procurement and supply, project management, installation, commissioning and on-time start-up for overall electrical systems on BP projects that may be awarded to ABB under this global frame agreement.

With an evolving energy mix, demand for safe, secure and reliable power continues to be vital.
