Innovation in Indonesia

B&F expand further into oil and Gas industries with pioneering technology for shallow platform wellheads.

With over 90 years of experience providing integrated electrical switchgear and drive solutions for hazardous and
challenging environments, Baldwin and Francis have now applied this expert technology to an innovative applications
in the Oil and Gas industry. B&F supplied a number of Univac systems to shallow platform offshore wellheads in Indonesia.

The Univac – FP installations, which provide the main power source for offshore wellheads, were designed
specifically to cope with the extremely demanding conditions. The self maintenance element particularly
catered for the customers’ needs as the wellheads are unmanned. Baldwin and Francis’ wealth of experience in
supplying safety and business critical equipment in remote locations was key to the projects success.

Premier Oil and CNOOC are the wellhead operatorsinvolved in the project. The systems are already proving
effective, successfully powering the relevant systems.

What next for B&F?

Stephen Clarke, Managing Director of Baldwin and Francis, explains how this venture is just the start for B&F
in Indonesia “We are looking forward to building upon this success. We are planning to expand further into the Oil and Gas, Mining and other sectors in the region. We are working hard with our partners within Indonesia and have identified a number of exciting opportunities.”
