The Suction Anchor Skid is a self-contained system for installing both Suction Anchors and Suction Piles.

The system operates with an intelligent valve pack and customised topside GUI. The system uses an AZ10 suction pump, but can also use an AZ20 suction pump depending on flow requirements of the project.

Water flow is monitored by the onboard water flow meter and data is send back to the GUI.

A pressure transducer is installed on the hot stab to monitor the positive and negative pressures during pile operations, this information is then utilised by the software to auto-regulate the suction pressure.

An optional heading, pitch and roll sensor can be added to the package if required.
