ABB offers a full range of reliable, energy-efficient motors to the oil and gas industry. Products are designed with industrial drive designs and patented technologies that ensure longer uptime and reduced maintenance requirements. With our extensive industry experience and application knowledge, we are a trusted brand of motors for the oil and gas industry.

High-voltage explosion-proof motors can withstand the pressure of an internal explosion without causing damage to the casing and preventing the spread of flames to the outside.

ABB explosion-proof motors meet all national and international standards and requirements, including IEC, EN, ATEX and NEMA, and all high-voltage explosion-proof motors are designed to meet the demands of demanding process applications, including onshore and offshore, oil and gas pipelines, refineries and petrochemical plants, floating production storage and offloading platforms, and liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants. The motors are capable of operating in harsh environments such as explosive atmospheres, extreme heat or cold, corrosive dust or humid environments.
