Hy­draulics

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - CONTENTS -

Todd En­ergy had or­dered a brand new 17 me­tre long, 3.2 tonne hy­draulic cylin­der from Ger­many for use on an oil rig in Taranaki; but the 40ft ship­ping con­tainer con­tain­ing the cylin­der was dam­aged in tran­sit.

Todd En­ergy called on Jonel to carry out pres­sure testing and a thor­ough check on the large cylin­der. Due to the value of the cylin­der, the sup­pli­ers of the cylin­der flew a tech­ni­cian in from Ger­many, and Todd En­ergy also sent one of their tech­ni­cians to over­see the process.

Jonel’s hy­draulic re­pair team fol­lowed the sup­plier’s pro­ce­dure sheet and car­ried out a com­plete check in­clud­ing pres­sure testing the cylin­der.

“We needed to com­pletely en­sure that the cylin­der was in 100 per­cent work­ing or­der. We searched for a com­pany to do this for us and were told that Jonel Hy­draulics had the cre­den­tials to this for us. We were ab­so­lutely not dis­ap­pointed, and re­ceived the best ser­vice. From the time the cylin­der came into the fa­cil­ity, ev­ery­thing hap­pened with the clock­work pre­ci­sion and we were out of there in the min­i­mum time pos­si­ble. Great stuff.” – Shaun Hem­ming, Project Manager, Todd En­ergy.

“We were thrilled that we were able to re­lieve a ma­jor headache for Todd En­ergy. It would have been a very ex­pen­sive ex­er­cise for them oth­er­wise. Our team was able to put to­gether a plan and deal with this un­usu­ally large and highly ex­pen­sive cylin­der swiftly and with­out too many is­sues. Our new, pur­pose-built hy­draulic ser­vice fa­cil­i­ties mean we are ready for more of th­ese.” – Suren Suren­dran, Direc­tor, Jonel Hy­draulics
