The GE Oil & Gas SeaPrime™ I Subsea BOP Control System translates electrical controls from the surface to hydraulic controls subsea that operate Blowout Preventer (BOP) systems, as deep as 12,500ft below sea level. The new fault-tolerant, two-POD design has the ability to re-route hydraulic functions while remaining subsea, preventing costly stack pulls. Access to serviceable components is highly simplified, reducing the time and cost for maintenance. Integrating GE’s proven “design for reliability” and “Reliability, Availability and Maintainability” models, the SeaPrime I system offers three times more availability for 8 cavity BOP stacks, offering a solution for both 15ksi and 20ksi systems.
