Lesser Impressive, but Important and Significant Accomplishments
Our team has designed over 70 PDU from 2007 through 2011 that met or exceeded all client specifications, complied with all SubSea and Surface industry wide standards, passed all recognized maritime inspection requirements and each DNV certification during each Factor Acceptance Tests (FAT) including PDUs for the following:
The EXPRO AX-S™ subsea well intervention system is a 14 line PDU system consisting of a 12 foot wide enclosure (3 four foot wide sections) and separate HV outputs (one at 400 Hz.) for ACERGY applications in Aberdeen, Scotland. It is a lightweight system used for analyzing and improving flows from subsea wells at depths to 3,000 meters without a surface vessel in attendance.
This is a safe and cost-effective method that may change the way companies might access and intervene on their subsea well assets at depths below 3,000 meters, which can dramatically reduce related operational costs. The system can support multiple ROV tasks from a sea bottom parking facility.
The AX-S system is part of a multi-million dollar contract with BG Group to intervene on two North Sea wells, and formed an alliance with BP, Aker Offshore to further develop the system for use with their assets in international operations. Industry operators such as GE, Weatherford, Baker Hughes, and Halliburton have expressed an interest in that system.
The SeaBotix LARS System is a highly customized container cabin that can be delivered to a vessel anywhere for immediate applications and contains a Complete ROV System.
