A 2 day London conference looking at the possibilities of mining on the seabed
On the 22nd and 23rd May, the international forum for deep sea mining professionals comes to London for a 2 day conference and networking event. Transvac are hosting an exhibition space at the event and hope to use the opportunity to network with an array of engineers working on subsea projects.
The event will include sessions on economic landscape and growth, sustainable mining, exploration and technological developments. Delegate tickets are still available on the Deep Sea Mining Website
Transvac’s Ejectors are fully proven for use subsea, with two production boosting Ejectors already in use on the seabed, for Marlim and Tordis. Recent projects include using Ejectors for deep sea mining, a new and exciting area for Transvac with ongoing testing taking place in our R&D facility on site.
With no moving parts and no maintenance, Transvac’s Ejector technology is an ideal solution for subsea processing. To ensure trouble-free operation, all Transvac subsea Ejectors are designed, manufactured and tested in-house. Operating rotating mechanical equipment subsea requires huge amounts of energy, often megawatts of power. Ejector technology can operate using existing energy and therefore operating costs can be negligible. Rotating mechanical equipment also requires special designs for performing subsea. Ejector designs change very little whether subsea or topside. In some applications, Ejector flows can be simply calculated using pressure drop data across the Ejector, thereby negating the need for flow metering instrumentation.
Materials of construction and mechanical design meet project specific subsea piping standards and are fully qualified. Transvac also provides ceramic nozzle and diffuser components for abrasive applications which have been proven over many years on topside applications.
