Armada's Test Rig Mimics the Tide.

Armada Marine Hydraulics’ have built new bespoke testing and flushing rigs and have upgraded their existing equipment to support MRE developers commission their devices at site or at their production facility prior to deployment. The MRE industry is expecting to deploy devices for 5 year periods and Armada has the equipment and engineering expertise to support the industry in through life maintenance.

The rigs are designed to be flexible and transportable so they can be stationed alongside the devices and used for specific purposes like trialling functionality or more simply pressure testing and flushing of pipework. Armada have many years’ experience in hydraulic installations and have used their equipment and quality engineering to ensure their customers systems are both functional as well clean and leak free.

Paul Tonkin, Senior Engineer comments " we can support our customers with engineers working with our rigs or for longer contracts we can train their engineers. Our bespoke rigs have been used on numerous contracts from grey ships to superyachts. It is important that hydraulic systems are clean and tested if they are to be efficient and maintenance free when they are needed to be operational over long periods."
