Abelon Systems was chosen by Aker Solutions to help design and develop the embedded firmware for the Vectus 6.0 platform. Having worked with Aker since 2005 to develop previous generations of its SEMs, Abelon were ideally placed to form part of the embedded firmware design team on this project. Vectus 6.0 is the latest development in SEMs which are used to remotely control oil and gas production systems placed on the seafloor. Compared with its predecessors, Vectus 6.0 provides greater data and power capabilities at lower project execution risks. The electronics and software platform can be adapted to meet future industry needs and has been designed with a focus on quality, reliability and manufacturability..

“Vectus 6.0 is a new step in subsea electronics,” said Hervé Valla, Aker Solutions’ Chief Technology Officer. “This is a highly reliable product with capabilities and a design that enable it to be easily adapted to meet future requirements of the subsea sector for many years to come.”

Ian Smith, Managing Director of Abelon added: “We are delighted that Aker has been recognised by the Industry in this way. Credit goes to all who contributed to the project and as part of the embedded system development team Abelon look forward to continuing to support Aker in its future product developments.”
