Global technology companies Proserv Controls and Trendsetter Engineering have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to combine their subsea expertise. They hope to bring their high-quality solutions for brownfield and greenfield projects to clients in new markets, they said 1 December.
Proserv will link its cutting-edge energy production control systems and related services with Trendsetter’s state-of-the-art pressure protection systems, including its cornerstone high integrity pressure protection system (HIPPS), connection systems and manifolds.
The collaboration has already borne fruit with the expansion of the Shenzi North field on behalf of BHP in the Gulf of Mexico. Trendsetter will deliver its proven SIL3 rated HIPPS module, equipped with Proserv’s renowned subsea controls technology. This will allow BHP to use the existing flowlines, risers and topside facilities, making the tieback to the Shenzi tension leg platform far more cost-effective.
One key component of the MoU’s value proposition sees the two parties harnessing the co-existence and reverse capabilities of Proserv’s subsea electronics technology to supply and retrofit HIPPS and manifold mounted controls on existing systems.
The chairman and CEO of Trendsetter Engineering, Mario Lugo, said the MoU with Proserv was “consistent with the reputation Trendsetter has cemented over the last 25 years, to be the premier supplier of high-quality, value-added subsea solutions for our clients.”
The CEO of Proserv Controls, Davis Larssen, said his company was “delighted to enter into this new MoU with Trendsetter as it offers a further exciting and unique example of us working together with another service provider to deliver best-in-class technologies, as well as genuine value and quality for the direct benefit of our clients.”
