The BOP Shutdown System is a large, specialized valve designed to seal off the wellhead in extreme cases that a blowout may occur. They are critical to preserving the safety of the crew, rig and environment. The system has been specifically designed to provide high flow and pressure in order to shut down the BOP in under the required 45 seconds set by API standard 53.

The BOP Shutdown System operates the BOP’s rams with a maximum pressure of 345 Bar at 100 L/min. The systems pressure is built up in two separate stages, this is to seal the well bore effectively and safely. The pressure is switched over manually, but automatic switching can be installed. Stage 1 can deliver a maximum flow rate of 450 L/min at 90 Bar.

The system is designed to be run from a 150Hp vehicle and can be used with either water-based glycol, mineral oil or sea water. It has been designed to run directly from the ROV main system with absolutely Zero cross contamination allowing for maximum power input from ROV.

If required, the pumps can also be configured for methanol pumping. The BOP Shutdown system includes a new unique control system that allows the user to switch the suction from Glycol to sea-water in the event of an emergency.
