FMC Technologies Schilling Robotics has developed an isolated pump—ISOL-8 Pump—that enables secondary intervention for BOPs in compliance with API Standard 53. The ISOL-8 Pump is tightly integrated with FMC’s UHD III Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV), and uniquely meets the 45 second requirement for closing BOP shear rams. The ISOL-8 Pump consists of independent pistons synchronized with software control. Flexible configuration allows optimization for a variety of demands and can simultaneously provide up to 50gpm at 5,000psi. Compared to existing industry solutions, this system is depth insensitive and can save operators up to $4-million per rig.
