Our skilled and highly experienced engineers continually design and develop advanced specialist hyperbaric testing systems for world-leading oilfield service companies and energy providers that are continually developing new and innovative subsea products and technology, for use in harsh challenging environments.

KW Designed Solutions are trusted in providing cost-effective reliable, specialised hyperbaric testing platforms that capture and report real-life data when subsea connectors are continually mating and de-mating in development and production testing, performing under extreme pressures and temperatures that are used for powering installations deep on the seabed.

The offshore oil and gas industry demand that wet-mate electrical connectors used for power, control and communications are rigorously tested to prove their robustness and reliability in the most realistic and severe operating environments, in line with API standards.

The fully automated control systems allows the user to simulate the functionality, operation and connectivity of the connectors whilst under immense pressures, ensuring reliability after hundreds of cycles, with pre-defined programmable functions completed with data logging and reporting capabilities.
