With Oil & Gas exploration continuing to push the boundaries of valve and actuator engineering, Tyco Valves & Controls presented its latest solutions to meet the latest demands of the subsea industry at Offshore Europe 2011.

Decades of experience

Through its FCT and Biffi brands, Tyco has been involved in supplying full valve and actuator packages to the subsea market for more than 30 years. FCT trunnion mounted ball valves have been used in subsea environment use since the early stages of exploration.

Since its first use in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea, Tyco valve and actuator packages have been used in more than 50 subsea projects in the North Sea, West Africa, Far East, Australia and Middle East. As exploration into deeper waters began in the late 90s, Tyco developed components certified for deep water, leading to orders for valves and control packages for the major developments off the coast of Angola. In the last decade, ultra-deep water fields of 3,000m depth and more have been explored, and Tyco has now developed equipment capable of tolerating and performing in the extreme conditions encountered in these remote, hostile zones.

Leading capabilities

As a world leader in the supply of flow control solutions, Tyco Valves & Controls provides experience, knowledge and proven capability in providing reliable service and maintenance support. Global petrochemical operators are able to achieve increased efficiency and more effective use through Tyco managed maintenance operations.

North Sea based customers rely on Tyco’s experience to ensure smooth running operations whether they are upstream, midstream or downstream. The offshore oil and gas industry team in Aberdeen delivers valve service and maintenance, including OEM services and valve asset management, SRV commissioning and diagnostic testing on-site for a global customer base. Supported by a dedicated technical team and backed by testing facilities capable of simulating conditions at 3,000 meters water depth, oil and gas operators can be confident that Tyco valve and actuation solutions meet and exceed the standards required.

Tyco also operates a customer technician training program that provides operators with in-house expertise in performing essential maintenance, for example on safety relief valves. Centred in Dyce, Aberdeen and with a long heritage of service, Tyco operations meet and exceed exacting industry standards of the offshore and marine industry, for both Tyco and non Tyco products, ensuring safety through service teams recognized by local national and global certifications, including ASME, NBBI, API, ISO, IEC and DIN.

Ultra deep subsea experience you can rely on

Tyco was awarded the API 6DSS Monogram License certification for the design, manufacturing, testing and documentation of ball, swing check and slab gate valves for subsea application in subsea pipeline systems. This certification is another example of Tyco’s dedication to constantly improving its products and services. Tyco’s commitment to subsea solutions is as deep as the waters you want to explore.
