On Wednesday 20th Frames Separation Technologies and Royal IHC signed a Joint Development Agreement to collaborate with respect to the development of a Compact Subsea Separator Module.
IHC has extensive experience in the design and supply of various subsea structures, equipment and modules, while Frames Separation Technologies has a lot of experience in the design and supply of separation systems and solutions. Recently, Frames extended its portfolio with a new Compact Controllable Inline Separator: the SwirlSep. Based on this technology, Frames Separation Technologies B.V. and Royal IHC started a collaboration to develop a Subsea SwirlSep Module.
The SwirlSep is highly suitable as subsea technology, since it is compact, controllable, efficient and significantly lower in weight compared to other separation technologies. Frames Separation Technologies B.V. and Royal IHC therefore foresee a major reduction of costs for subsea separation modules.
Erik Brink (Frames Business Development Manager), is very pleased with this agreement; “Combining our strengths, we are able to develop an innovative solution in order to have an alternative for todays ‘large and heavy’ subsea separation modules.”
According to Andy Eaton (Director of IHC Concept) “This new technology has tremendous potential for application in various subsea processes.”
