Aker unveils subsea electric actuator

Offshore staff

FORNEBU, NorwayAker Solutions has introduced a rotary subsea electric actuator.

In 2013, the company started the El-drive program to develop products and technology in electric actuation for future system deliveries.

The resultant permanently installable rotary electrical actuator can be used to operate subsea valves with an ISO13628-8 ROV class 4 interfaces in process systems and subsea production systems.

Aker adds that the all-electric system will enable cost savings both on topsides and for umbilicals. It also should lead to cost reductions and more flexible subsea production systems compared with conventional electrohydraulic systems.
