Exploring remote oil and gas fields far out in the ocean is of critical importance to the supply of the fossil energy needed by mankind. Drilling systems and other equipment for the offshore production of oil and gas have to withstand extreme forces and deliver exceptional performance and reliability in the harshest of environments. The Drive Systems Segment is working with leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) around the globe and provides innovative drive designs for a variety of offshore applications. Gear drive systems used in offshore environments maximize performance in lifting, rotating or propelling, and are critical to the reliability of jacking drives, cranes, winches, compressors, pumps and generators. Such systems are engineered and purposely built for the specific applications they encounter.
The Drive Systems Segment produces the S350 gearbox used in many critical offshore applications.
