Life Support Systems On Naval Vessels
The success of the Company is founded on
- innovation and engineering excellence in its core atmosphere management products
- design-level integration in the vessel during construction
- intimate knowledge of the challenges and uniqueness of the submarine environment
- a track record of first class delivery and service over decades of system life
The solutions have lifetimes measured in decades, and TPG provides through-life support that includes both scheduled refurbishment and unscheduled service and repair.
The key technology underpinning the international sales of CO2 removal equipment is liquid MEA (Mono Ethanol Amine) direct scrubbing technology. Variants have been in use throughout the entire nuclear submarine community for almost 50 years. This has been extended and developed within the last 15 years for AlP (Air Independent Propulsion) diesel electric submarines. Innovations developed by TPG offer the prospect of at least another 30 years of service.
The core technology is supported by other systems for oxygen generation and removal of refrigerants and other toxic gases to provide an integrated atmosphere management solution which also meets the stringent demands for noise, vibration and discharge that characterise long-term submarine deployments.
The 3rd generation O2 production system, known as the Combined Oxygen Generation System (COGS) has been successfully proven at sea and will become the backbone of the business for the next 10 years, with service and refurbishment business potentially long after that.
TPG is exploring opportunities to transfer these technologies into other environments that call for clean air in confined spaces.
