Rexroth to display the first subsea actuator with advantages of both electro-mechanical and electro-hydraulic systems at OTC 2019

Subsea Valve Actuator

The unique subsea valve actuator from Bosch Rexroth.

Rexroth will display a unique approach for subsea actuation in booth #1205 at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston, Texas, May 6 to May 9. The Subsea Valve Actuator (SVA) is an electro-mechanical actuator with a hydrostatic drive, uniquely designed to complete the range of traditional hydraulic and all-electric subsea actuators for subsea control and production systems.

By combining the best of electrohydraulic actuators and electromechanical actuators, Rexroth is revolutionizing actuator technology with the world’s first hybrid Subsea Valve Actuator (SVA).

Optimized for manufacturing, the SVA system is based on industrial-standard components that has been produced with the highest quality standards and lean production methods. With its modular design, users can easily configure according to their unique applications without costly redesigning their entire system.

Highlights of the SVA include:

• An energy efficient system, in accordance with the Rexroth 4EE standard, minimizing the required peak and stand-by electric power

• Compatible with Industry 4.0 technology, the SVA includes integrated sensors for monitoring position, pressure, temperature, and more

• Cost-effective modular design using industrial components and lean production management processes

• Environmentally-friendly set up with redundant pressure compensation and no fluid leakage

• Up to 75 percent reduction in comparison to all-electric actuators available in the market

• High availability and condition monitoring designed to operate up to 25 years with minimum maintenance

• Independent safety control has Safety Integrity Level 3 capabilities

The SVA actuator achieves the same performance in terms of safety but with much better reliability than hydraulic actuators, by also offering a simple electric interface like the all-electric actuators (without umbilicals for hydraulic fluid power).

Experience the Subsea Valve Actuator with Augmented Reality powered by Bosch and other #SmartSolutions in booth #1205 at OTC 2019.
