TMT Typhoon 8 Fluid Transfer Skid

TMT Typhoon 8 Fluid Transfer Skid

The main function of the Typhoon 8 fluid transfer skid is to allow an ROV to perform an emergency intervention on a Blowout Preventer (BOP). Operationally the ROV would install that hotstab into the receptacle on the BOP and then pump hydraulic control fluid into the BOP to close the BOP.

The Fluid Transfer Skid system components are mounted in a 6082 aluminium skid which is designed to be compatible with specific ROVs. The fluid skid is attached to the bottom of the Typhoon 8 ROV.

The fluid skid has been designed to fit the specific Typhoon 8 ROV footprint and mounting bolt holes.
