there when you need it

In the event that conventional MUX control of a BOP (Blow-Out Preventer) is lost during a subsea emergency, a back-up acoustic BOP control system allows a well to be remotely shut-in by means of a high security, through water wireless acoustic communications link. During an emergency, system components installed on the BOP are remotely activated from a control room on the rig or using a portable command system deployed from a lifeboat, support vessel or ROV. Systems need to be developed to the latest API 16D standards and are ABS or DNV certified.
