SPE Offshore Europe 2017 Preview

23 August, 2017


The latest developments in bolting tools and heavy lift systems for offshore oil and gas, wind energy and decommissioning projects will be featured on the Enerpac stand at SPE Offshore Europe 2017. Enerpac’s torque wrench range includes the PTW-Series pneumatic torque wrench and ETW-Series electric torque wrench, providing constant torque output, and low-vibration operation to reduce operator fatigue and risk of injury. The new ETW-Series bootloader version allows one common control box to be used with all sizes of wrenches, enhancing the flexibility of the fixing system.

For heavy lift, Enerpac’s range of synchronised lifting systems from mechanical and hydraulic cylinders to gantries, strand jack and skidding systems have been used to lift and launch a 43,000-ton floating oil production system, and load-out a 7000-ton offshore production facility. They offer precise positioning of heavy loads in a safe and controlled manner both onshore and offshore.


Since its establishment in 1982, Hi-Force has rapidly emerged as a leading manufacturer and supplier of hydraulic tools and bolting equipment. The product offering includes cylinders, pumps, torque tools, bolt tensioners, jacks, nut splitters and puller kits and many other industry specific tools.

At SPE Offshore Europe, Hi-Force will be highlighting products that are key for supporting critical bolting processes in Aberdeen’s recovering oil & gas industry and will offer a solution to technological challenges faced during significant ongoing developments.

With health & safety being of paramount importance in the bolting industry, Hi-Force will also be promoting the ECITB approved Mechanical Joint Integrity training courses. These courses not only maintain the competence levels of the personnel but further develop and improve to reduce potential risk of accidents or incidents wherever possible.


Hydac will be showcasing its innovations around condition-based monitoring at SPE offshore Europe. Examples of how condition monitoring can be used to monitor single sub systems to complete marine and offshore vessels will be given. Hydac will be showing how its range of sensors can be integrated into these systems and what the data can show about the condition of the oil and components.

Hydac will also be showing the new HMG 4000 handheld data logger with its new capability and touch screen and how this can work with Hydac software. It was mainly developed for all values measured in relation to hydraulic systems; such as pressure, temperature, flow rate and position. Moreover, it provides a high level of flexibility, even when it comes to evaluating other measuring values. The main applications are servicing, maintenance or test rigs.

The HMG 4000 has an easy-to-operate user interface due to its large 5.7″ touchscreen. The operator can access all of the unit’s functions and settings by means of clearly presented selection menus.

Lee Products

The Lee Company will be showing its new latching solenoid valve for power sensitive, down hole applications. By incorporating magnets into the coil design, this solenoid valve offers a major reduction in overall power consumption; particularly when operating with extended on periods.

The company comments that, unlike a traditional coil design that requires continuous voltage to energise the valve from its natural state, the latching valve requires only momentary pulses of 14.5W to switch to and remain in each state. The polarity of voltage dictates the position.

The Lee latching solenoid valve draws on the design elements of the company’s ultra-compact and field proven piloting solenoid valves. The company states that the Lee MultiSeal radically simplifies port layout, offers significant space savings, reduces machining costs and provides a high level of reliability over traditional sealing methods. The Lee Company offers custom configurations to meet envelope, material, flow, pressure and electrical requirements for a wide variety of applications.

Pegasus Hydraulics

Pegasus Hydraulics is a leading UK stockholder and distributor of stainless steel hydraulic fittings. The company supplies many customers from the offshore, marine, metal processing and paper industries (although the range of industries and applications is much wider) with German-manufactured high quality stainless steel hydraulic fittings.
