FSubsea is the proud recipient of the OTC Spotlight on New Technology Award 2017, with our Omnirise miniBooster technology.
The Omnirise miniBooster is the world’s first barrierfluid-less and seal-less pumping system intended for permanent subsea applications down to 3000 meters. The system can be used for a variety of applications, and includes a unique subsea electric Variable Speed Drive, developed by NEBB in Norway. It was successfully qualified in 2015 during oceanic tests, as part of NOVs’ Active Subsea Cooler system, in partnership with Statoil, Shell, Chevron, Total and GE.
A further development of the barrier fluid-less technology, including adding hydrodynamic Variable Speed functionality (Torque Converter) and embedding it into a 1.5 MW Omnirise Singlephase and Multiphase Boosting System, is in progress. Key partners here include National Oilwell Varco, Hayward Tyler, RuhrPumpen and Voith Turbo.
