For the electrical wiring of various motors, pumps and other equipment on their offshore oil drilling platforms, an oil and gas exploration & production company was using enclosures and terminal blocks. But, they were experiencing numerous problems with the traditional hardwiring of equipment including:
These problems increased downtime for troubleshooting, repair of corroded terminal strips, replacing gaskets on enclosures, and rewiring equipment.
To meet the unique set of physical and environmental conditions to be overcome, the Remke Engineered Solutions Team determined that a Customized Product Solution was needed.
The Remke Engineered Solutions team:
The Remke Engineered Solution allowed the customer to quickly replace modules as needed instead of spending hours with rewiring & repair. Downtime was virtually eliminated as were the dollars associated with troubleshooting and repair. Other benefits of the Remke solution included foolproof circuit identification, an enclosure that was completely sealed against corrosives and moisture, and a smaller footprint. Although reducing size wasn’t required, the customer was pleased to have a smaller distribution box as available space is at a premium on any offshore oil platform.
