Development of subsea typhoon valve

​Typhonix recently received support from the Research Council of Norway's Petromaks programme for development of a subsea version of the Typhoon Valve.
The main objective of the project "Subsea Typhoon Valve" is to develop a cyclone based subsea choke valve which improves fluid transportation, increases the subsea system integrity and reliability, and reduces the environmental impact from petroleum production. In a broader perspective a subsea Typhoon Valve will contribute to: 

 • Increased production rates 
 • Reduced energy requirements for petroleum transportation
 • Reduced need for production chemicals
 • Less discharges to sea and less emissions to air
 • Increased reliability and service life of subsea valves and systems

Kick off for the project will be in the 3. quarter of 2009
