Seatools introduces plug-and-play subsea HPU range

Seatools, a leading provider of subsea hydraulic components and systems, stepped up its standardized hydraulic solutions bid with a new range of subsea hydraulic power units (SHPUs). The range offers a number of high-performance SHPUs that stand out in robustness, compactness, and ease of integration. The powerpacks come as true plug-and-play solutions.

Leveraging Seatools’ in-depth application knowledge and electro-hydraulic engineering capabilities, the full line of powerpacks introduces a new level of performance, reliability, and design flexibility. The ready-to-roll powerpacks were designed to meet the demands of today’s subsea equipment and clients’ configuration requirements. Thanks to their unique mechanical designs, the SHPUs come with a significant number of (integrated) hydraulic system components and functionalities. Examples are pressure compensation, filtration, controls, and instrumentation. The modular approach creates a real benefit for hydraulic system integrators: a (cost-)efficient configuration of subsea hydraulic systems that matches the specific requirements of integrators, while pushing the limits of system compactness and reliability.

The new range is specifically designed for subsea equipment that requires uncompromising reliability, such as in subsea installation tooling and subsea dredging systems. The highly robust and durable mechanical designs are based on field-proven subsea powerpacks. Seatools’ decades-long track record demonstrates excellent operation in harsh environments known for vibrations, shock loads, dirt, and temperature changes.

Johan Sol, Business Development Manager at Seatools, said: “We believe this new product range proposes a unique offering. Especially when combined with Seatools’ technical expertise, which is available to evaluate and optimize our customers’ system designs. Complementing Seatools’ existing line of subsea hydraulic components, with the launch of this underwater hydraulic powerpack range we grow alongside existing customers and meet the needs of new customers.”
