The newly redesigned SeaPrime™ I Subsea MUX BOP Control System is the first system to include a re-routable, smart redundancy feature which allows drilling contractors to continue drilling if components of one POD fail. This reduces BOP downtime and the risk of a POD-related stack pull. By simplifying access to critical components, utilizing only two pods, and re-routing hydraulic functions within a POD, the SeaPrime I system delivers three times more availability than existing systems.
The BHGE SeaPrime I system was designed using GE’s proven “Design for Reliability” and “Reliability, Availability, Maintainability (RAM)” models to drive system-level design and architecture--models proven extensively in GE’s Aviation, Nuclear and Power businesses.
Designed with a foundation of reliability, availability and maintainability, the SeaPrime I Subsea MUX BOP Control system delivers the uptime you need, without increasing maintenance or service cost.The innovative new shape and design of the system improves access to serviceable components and critical functions, reducing maintenance time and the margin for human error. The SeaPrime I system also eliminates 100% of pilot tubing- reducing potential leak points by 40%.
