On-demand air supply

Published:  03 February, 2014

Oceaneering Umbilical Solutions (Oceaneering), a global leader in the design and manufacture of subsea cable systems is achieving reliable, on-time loading of its cable carousels thanks to a new compressed air system from Gardner Denver distributor, CPA Group (CPA).

The three 250 kW, GD compressors are providing an on-demand supply of air to the air skate equipment. This is used to lift the heavy umbilical cables on to the carousels before they are loaded on to the waiting vessels at Rosyth dockyard for delivery to the end customer.

CPA carried out an audit to analyse air demand and energy consumption and, following a tender process was awarded the contract.
