Wellhead Control Panels

Performing a safety critical function on manned and unmanned platforms, our Wellhead Control Panels (WHCPs) are designed for the monitoring, controlling and shutdown of various (sub)surface valves to ensure safe operation for single or multi-well applications.
This includes control of Subsurface Controlled Safety Valves (SSCSV), Surface Safety Valves (SSV), Master Valves (MV), Wing Valves (WV) and other wellhead safety valves, e.g. Choke Valves, Riser Valves and ESDs.
