Our water-based hydraulic power units are used primarily for the activation of subsea valves. These are specialised, hazardous area pump units designed and built to a high specification.
To achieve the performance and reliability that the application demands, we select a Hammelmann reciprocating plunger pump. These pumps are mounted vertically which saves space, and are known for their reliability and long service intervals.
The container is DNV 2.7-1 certified and can be lifted by fork truck or by the 5-leg sling set supplied with each unit. The HMI controls and service connection manifold are externally mounted in lockable panels. Generally, the containers have three access doors and one set of large double doors – although the configuration can be designed to suit individual requirements. There is an option to use a DNV 2.7-3 certified crash frame where weight is critical.
Inside the container is a raised floor allowing all high pressure and control hoses to run underneath providing a trip/hazard-free walkway. There is clear access to both sides of the engine and pump assembly, and ATEX-compliant internal lighting can be included.
