SPT Offshore owns and operates 20 remotely controlled suction pumps for water depths from 10m up to 3,000m. These pumps are purposely built for the installation of single piles, suction pile clusters (SPCs), platform foundations or subsea structure foundations.
Next to that, SPT Offshore has a pool of 7 suction piles with a capacity of 120 – 250 mT that are available for rental when a temporary anchoring point is required. Lastly, SPT has its own supporting equipment; control containers for the different pump skids, powered umbilical sheaves and umbilical winches, hydraulic power packs and autolock sheaves for pipeline pull-in.
The SAPS-003 suction pump is powered by the hydraulic flow of a ROV or of a hydraulic hose from the vessel’s deck, pending on the water depth.
The SAPS-004 Suction Pump is designed for the installation of suction pile founded platforms.
SPT Offshore operates the SAPS-005 pump unit as a modular system for suction installations of multi-pile structures.
The SAPS-006 suction pump is powered by a hydraulic power pack and is specifically suited for the installation of subsea structures founded on 3 to 4 suction piles in shallow water up to 120m. Four hoses are connected from the valve manifold to each individual suction pile and the structure’s verticality is adjusted by opening/closing specifc valves using ROV/divers.
The SAPS-007 Suction Pump is designed for the installation of suction pile founded platforms.
SPT Offshore operates an ultra deepwater high-volume suction pump unit (SAPS-008) for installing suction piles in water depths up to 3000m.
