The HPU will be able to provide full hydraulic control for downhole functions via the delivery of regulated pressure and flow to the 32-core Umbilical Reeler Unit.
Hydraulic power is provided by air driven LP, HP & Recirculation pumps. Outlets include branched networks of 6 x HP and 29 x LP lines, each with independent block and bleed control valves, whilst independent accumulators provide energy storage. The unit is housed within a purpose built DNV 2.7-3 frame certified for offshore lifting.
AFP’s scope of works included: project management, engineering design, fabrication, testing & certification.
