Repeat order for Fast Fill Pressure Test Cabin

21st May 2021

We are delighted to receive another order for a high pressure unit for subsea pressure testing. The equipment will be designed within in a DNV 2.7-1 certified container which will include an integrated control room allowing the operator to perform testing from a safe location.

A VSD-driven Hammelmann reciprocating plunger pump will allow the operator to undertake a multitude of offshore tasks from this self-contained unit including fast fill and pressure test. This design reduces the operating footprint, manpower and time needed on the project.

The unit will be fitted with a unique Calder PLC-based control system with HMI for comprehensive control of all operating and logging of parameters. Other unique features include:
• container noise attenuation
• external connection points allowing easy set-up
• internal lighting
• direct drive between motor and pump to remove side loads
• raised, removable flooring to allow services to pass underneath giving a trip-free maintenance space
• 5-leg sling set for crane lifts
• easily accessible maintenance doors on the container.

It will also include a custom designed internal hose reel to control 600-metre, 1-inch diameter hose. However, the reel will be capable of handling varying hose diameters and lengths, and can be deployed quickly and safely.
