System flushing and chemical cleaning

Reduce waste, risk and damage to the environment by choosing a unique chemical cleaning process carried out by our specialist teams. Using chemicals and methods that are less hazardous and more environmentally friendly than traditional products, our team assembles pumping units, temporary hoses and pipework, heating coils, exchangers, circulating tanks and analytical/control equipment to carry out chemical cleaning of pipework systems. We have developed an extremely effective and efficient method of cleaning Printed Circuit Heat Exchangers (PCHE), which can be carried out either in our yard or sites out with our facilities. The method involves a combination of a chemical cleaning circulation, in conjunction with a series of gas puffing operations, which will ensure the optimum conditions inside the PCHE, and produce an effective and efficient cleaning programme.

Total fluid cleanliness

Delivering tailored solutions and complete management of your plant and equipment lubrication activities. Correctly specified and maintained filtration is a critical part of your hydraulic system and we provide assistance with specification and supply of suitable filter elements from leading manufacturers.

System design, engineering, manufacture and installation

Working closely with you, our in-house design department builds tailored solutions to your most complex projects from design through to installation. A dedicated project manager will work with you through the life of the project to ensure deadlines and expectations are met, and project planning is documented and tracked via standardised software to enable our team to integrate seamlessly into your schedule. We can provide full design, liaison and certification services where third-party input is required or integrate with your existing third-party arrangement. We apply specialist standards to range of industries, including ATEX, Lloyds and DNV.

Typical system works undertaken:

  • Saturation dive handling equipment
  • Launch and recovery systems (LARS)
  • Ballast control systems
  • Rig skidding systems
  • Winches and umbilical reels
  • Work-over control systems
  • Emergency shutdown (ESD) systems
  • Drill floor HPU’s
  • Hydraulic control systems
  • High pressure test units
  • BOP handling systems
  • Accumulator stations
  • Wellhead control panels

In-house manufacturing is carried out by highly-skilled technicians and engineers in purpose-built facilities and component integrity is maintained through the use of dedicated product assembly areas and clean rooms. Purpose-built pressure testing and flushing equipment located on-site allows for system integrity to be assured prior to dispatch and commissioning.  All equipment is tested prior to dispatch with test procedures either defined by the client or prepared by our engineers.

Hydraulic hose inspection and recertification

Increase efficiency, reduce costs and enhance safety with bespoke solutions that go beyond traditional inspect and supply agreements. Hydraulic experts adopt a simple rationalisation exercise to ensure optimum stock levels reflect the assets that are in a ready-to-use condition at all times. In addition, our hose integrity management service provides an inventory of fully compliant, certified and ready-to-use hose assemblies.

Use EnerMech Live, our bespoke online hose management system, to review stock levels, condition levels and hose certification from any location in the world, including offshore.

Main features and benefits include:

  • Accurate inventory
  • Asset history
  • Location visibility
  • Certification availability
  • Rationalised inventory and cost savings
  • Provision of single point of contact
  • Improved inspection techniques ensuring minimal hose failures
  • Provision of training and technical support where necessary

Maintenance, repair and overhaul

Take advantage of a seamless and a fully integrated maintenance, repair and overhaul service carried out by expert technical support and application engineers. Maintenance, repair and overhaul of mechanical handling equipment, control systems and hydraulic components are carried out to exacting service quality standards at one of the most accomplished specialist facilities in the world.

We offer inspection services, pump and motor repair and tests, valve repair and tests, cylinder repair, refurbishment and testing and accumulator refurbishment and recertification on a wide range of equipment including hydraulic power units, hydraulic control panels, winches and windlasses, BOP carriers, windlass gearboxes, drill pipe handling equipment, davits, cranes, rig skid systems, pipe clamps, straighteners and tensioners and ROV handling systems.
