Hybrid actuation system for safety critical valves and equipment


We will deliver actuators for valve- or equipment operations that support the All-electric initiative to many and any industrial company. Our solution is a Hybrid, utilizing 3 mediums for moving a valve or equipment: Nitrogen, Environmentally friendly fluid, and a very small amount of electricity. On top of this, we design a control system, that based on machine learning can predict the health of the plant. The heart of the innovation is a completely new way to include a fail-safe design with the required Safety Integrity Level (SIL) for the application. As our system consumes almost no energy to operate, it will find its use in any application where there is limited energy available at the equipment location. However, our main motivation is to use our competence gained in the oil & gas industry to meet global targets of reduced CO2 emissions. Our system will reduce the need for fuel driven generators that normally power such systems today.
