KT Hydraulics are currently undertaking a four-phase actuator project with over 120 actuators being manufactured at KTH, this is the biggest actuator manufacturing cycle KT Hydraulics has ever undertaken at once.

The project includes a range of actuators all designed and manufactured by KT Hydraulics. Some of the actuators being manufactured are, KS100 (Double acting actuator) and KSF100 (Spring return actuator) as well as ROV Interface for the actuator to be attached to, readying for a remote vehicle to attach to the ROV and turn the phase valve on the actuator.

In order to take on this vast project, close working relationships with suppliers is necessary. KT Hydraulics have a special working relationship with Heap and Partners who provide the phase valves the actuators are mounted to.
