When installing a wind turbine at sea, it is necessary to pump pressurised water on the seabed while anchoring the pillars of the supporting platform.
This is an absolutely extreme application for a jetting pump installed on board a service plarform. In order to overcome hydrostatic pressure due to the depth at which the installation takes place and the need to pierce the seabed, the jetting pump must deliver exceedingly high head while being subjected to the aggressivity of the seawater.
n order to withstand the challenging operating conditions seen in this plant in CHINA, multistage high pressure pumps with castings and components made entirely of Duplex steel were researched and developed. Completing this provision, borehole pumps in marine bronze for water supply, equipped with stainless steel motors and water resistant power cables were supplied.
All machines provided were certified by the notified body CCS Marine which validated the project and its production process, also attending the end-of-line functional testing.
