Raw Water/Pre-Loading Reels

Raw Water/Pre-Loading Reel Systems provide an effective means of storing, lowering, and retrieving a hose at the end of which an ESP (Electrical Submersible Pump) is attached and run below the ocean surface to deliver seawater to an elevated offshore structure. The systems can be retrofitted to an existing vessel or supplied for new construction.

Safety

Apart from replacing old Raw Water Towers on Jack-ups, Reel Power OG Raw water and Pre Loading Reel systems provide a safe and effective solution for raw water supply on offshore structures. The reel accommodates an OSD (oil suction & discharge) hose. At the end of the hose, a suitable submersible deep well pump is attached. The entire weight of the pump, motor, and accessories are supported by the hose alone, making it the most maintenance-friendly, hassle-free compact lightweight system available in the market place.

Reel Power OG systems are capable of pulling up the pump in the shortest possible time, ensuring the least rig downtime and decreasing overall operating cost. The pumps can be quickly retrieved for inspection and maintenance at any time.

A complete Seawater Lift system is comprised of a reel with the hose, power cable, safety cable, submersible pump/motor with all necessary controls. Single-speed pump control with soft start or variable frequency controls for better flow control are provided.

Please contact us with your needs for us to design a suitable Seawater Lift system for you.

Model/Option

Options

  • Electric Slip Ring Options: A electrical slip ring eliminates the need to decouple during raising or lowering the pump. Slip ring may be by-passed in case of failure.
  • Platforms Options: Single and double (parallel or tandem) reel platforms are available to raise the reel off the deck and provide additional storage space under the platform. Platforms are complete with safety railing and access latter.
  • Alternate Hose Capacities: 2”, 3”, 4”, 6”, 8”, 10”, 12” hose capacities available. Various hose lengths available.
  • Hose Options: Standard and fire resistant hoses. Composite hose eliminates separate power connections.
  • Drive Options: Hydraulic and electric drive options are also available.
  • Remote Control Panel Option: Remote control panels are available for ease of operation from the deck, primarily used with the above platform options.
  • Lifting Accessories Option: Certified single point lift spreader bar, lifting slings & shackles.
  • Deepwell Pump: Electric submersible pump with electric cable may be supplied to meet your exact requirements.
  • Chute: To maintain pump/hose position in high winds, waves and current.
