Tampnet and Aker BP have finished the deployment of fibre optic cable to the Aker BP operated FPSO Alvheim. The FPSO is now connected to Tampnet’s subsea fibre optic network providing high redundancy and capacity, preparing Alvheim for the digital transition.Alvheim was already connected to Tampnet’s network, but this was via a lower capacity radio link from the Heimdal platform, which will be de-commissioned in 2021.Lead Engineer OCT at Aker BP, Ingve Guttorm Lode explains that the deployment will enable Alvheim to particpiate in the digital transition which is driven by the Aker BP EUREKA program for digitalization.“This is a very stable connection with high redundancy that will secure the best possible up-time for our operations. With the fibre optic cable’s massive capacity and low latency, we can now explore and test various applications to optimize production onboard”, Lode said.Tampnet’s Project Manager, Eivind Sangesland has been onboard the installation vessel for the past week to supervise the finishing touches of the installation. He points out that it is a special solution that Tampnet has delivered in this project in close cooperation with Aker BP and Subsea7 through their alliance.Sangesland explains that Tampnet and Aker BP started the project last year with divers from DSV Seven Falcon installing subsea connectors to provide Alvheim with an optimal interface for the fibre cable connection. This summer, a cable tail installed on Tampnet’s existing system between Heimdal and Mariner was picked up and a new 8 km long cable was laid to Alvheim where it was connected to a CEM (Cable End Module) and deployed to the seabed below Alvheim by the CLV Seaway Aimery.ROV pilots made the final connection to the Alvheim FPSO topside by connecting the previously installed subsea connectors with the CEM. From Alvheim to shore, the telecommunications signals will flow through approximately 450 km of high quality fibre optic cables before arriving at the Aker BP offices in Stavanger.In preparation for the offshore campaign, Tampnet’s NOC (Network Operations Centre) prepared the installation vessel with equipment to allow 4G LTE coverage while working out in the field. From the cable lay vessel Seaway Aimery, the 4G LTE coverage enabled the crew and project team onboard to communicate seamlessly through services demanding high bandwith such as video conferencing and screen sharing, and proved beneficial from an operational perspective in planning vessel and testing operations in proximity to the Alvheim FPSO.
Gus Poyet hailed the best refereeing decision he has ever seen after seeing Sunderland drag themselves out of the Barclays Premier League relegation zone. The 46-year-old Uruguayan was full of praise for match official Phil Dowd, who sent off Cardiff defender Juan Cala and awarded a penalty after initially allowing play to continue. Poyet believes the decision was a direct result of the debate sparked by West Ham midfielder Matt Jarvis’ attempts to stay on his feet under the challenge of Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna earlier this month, which ultimately went unrewarded. Connor Wickham set the ball rolling when he headed Sebastian Larsson’s 26th-minute corner home for his fourth goal in three games, and it was he who prompted Cala’s premature departure. The 21-year-old pounced on defender Cala’s error only to be hauled back by the Spaniard and after Dowd had played an advantage which did not accrue, he pointed to the spot and issued a red card. Fabio Borini converted from the spot and the Black Cats never looked back as substitute Emanuele Giaccherini added a third 14 minutes from time before Wickham claimed his second of the game at the death from the Italy international’s corner. The win – just Sunderland’s second in the league in 11 attempts at the Stadium of Light – lifted them out of the drop zone on goal difference and left the Bluebirds at the bottom of the pile and in deep trouble. But Poyet said: “Let’s not think we have done everything because we have done nothing. There are still games to play and everything can change. “Now if we want to be in a great situation, we have put ourselves in the best position possible in football because it didn’t look good. “I talked about miracles, let’s see if in two weeks’ time I am here telling you that miracles happen.” Opposite number Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refused to be drawn into the debate over Cala’s dismissal, and set his men the task of winning both their remaining games – at Newcastle next week and at home to Chelsea on the final day – to stay up. Asked about their chances, he said: “Of course they have taken a big blow, but we have got two games – we have got to win those two. “We looked at this one as a possibility for three points, but then we have got to look at the next one and Chelsea. The next two games, you have got to win them.” Press Association The Sunderland head coach said: “It’s the best decision I have ever seen from a referee in my life, it’s as simple as that. “If we really want to stop players going down easily, this is the way, so all the credit to Phil today because he did what we all wanted, but it was for some reason not possible. “Definitely Jarvis helped us a lot because after that incident with Jarvis, we have been talking about these actions for the last two weeks. “Today, we got what everybody was probably expecting in terms of playing the game, going on because the referee is going to back you up because you have advantage, but it was a foul and it was a red card. “Like I said, it was the best decision I have ever seen in my life from a referee. “Before Jarvis, maybe – I will ask Phil – this penalty wouldn’t have been given and the sending-off, which means that on that day you go into the dressing room and you need to ask a player, ‘Why didn’t you go down?’, which is natural because if not, you don’t get the penalty. “Now Phil proved to us all that it’s possible and that for football is magnificent.” Dowd’s decision on the stroke of half-time proved the pivotal moment in the game, although by that point, the Black Cats were already ahead.
