CLIENT: Hibernia Management Development Corporation

Pennecon Hydraulic Systems are supplying the upgraded control system for the BOP cranes for the Hibernia platform as part of the upgrade for the Hibernia drilling systems. The original cranes have been in use since 1996 when PHS (then Hydraulic Systems Ltd.)  supplied the current control system to the installation. When a requirement for upgrade was identified, PHS was contacted to complete the new system. This new upgraded system will be hazardous area rated, radio remote control with collision avoidance system between the cranes.
