Bosch Rexroth Launches Subsea Clamping Cylinder for BSC

Bosch Rexroth has launched a new Subsea Clamping Cylinder for fully automatic Bend Stiffener Connectors (BSCs).The system is designed for use for up to 25 years, and, according to the company, is "impressive" with its high clamping forces, powerless holding operation, and easy installation with no need for manual work by divers. According to Bosch Rexroth, the patented automation solution withstands forces of up to 120 tons per clamping cylinder. The cushioning mechanism absorbs vibrations and distributes the load across a number of cylinders within the system. This prevents

Bosch Rexroth Bags Fugro Contract

Fugro, the global geo-data specialist, has awarded a contract to Bosch Rexroth to fully maintain and further improve Fugro Synergy’s hydraulic equipment.Fugro has worked with Bosch Rexroth for over a decade to ensure it has the best hydraulic systems and software solutions on board its geotechnical drilling vessel, the Fugro Synergy. Now, they are working together again in order to better prepare for the future.The Fugro Synergy vessel has been in operation since 2009, and is primarily used to drill into the seabed in order to analyse whether it can be safely used as a foundation for structures

Efficient Wave-Generated Power … Really!

Wave Energy Converters (WECs) is Martin & Ottaway, a New Jersey-based marine engineering firm that has been in continuous operation since 1875 which incubated SurfWEC LLC in December of 2018. SurfWEC, with university and industry partners -- Stevens Institute of Technology, ABB, Airline Hydraulics, Bosch-Rexroth, Deeptek, HYDAC, ISCO Pipe, Wire Co./Lankhorst Ropes, and others – is working to develop WECs using patented features that are expected to increase energy recovery rates by an order of magnitude as stand-alone units or integrated with legacy WEC systems.The SurfWEC system is also designed

New Offshore Decommissioning Barge

; OPEX costing for the new removal concept.   The solution is a barge concept that uses reverse float-over and on-board lifting methods to remove both the topside and substructure using the same vessel. For the development of the primary float-off lifting system, Longitude partnered with Bosch Rexroth, to develop a heave compensated hydraulic lifting and skidding system.   The resulting vessel design can accommodate the removal of different types of topsides and jackets, without modifying the barge, from removal preparation stages, lifting, topside skidding and securing to underwater

New Wave Generators for Indonesian Hydrodynamic Lab

Indonesia research institute returns to Bosch Rexroth for new wave generator systems after 25 years   Bosch Rexroth said it has been awarded a contract to install two electrical wave generator systems for Indonesian Hydrodynamic Laboratory (IHL), an advanced research laboratory of BPPT (The Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology). The new systems will replace the original hydraulic system supplied by Rexroth 25 years ago.   IHL has sophisticated facilities, including experimental tanks, for testing many types of ocean vessels. The laboratory conducts research and developme

New Split Hoist System from Bosch Rexroth

 A new ‘split hoist’ heave compensation system from Bosch Rexroth combines active and passive heave compensation (AHC and PHC) elements with a sophisticated control system to enable AHC functionality to be added to new and existing hoisting installations. Using a modular and mobile design, the new split hoist system is especially interesting for use with existing multi-part reeved hoisting equipment.   The new split hoist heave compensation system supports a much higher working load, while also improving system efficiency by as much as 80 percent, according to the manufacturer.
