Offering the latest stealth technology - making submarines quieter than their predecessors and harder to detect

TP Group has many decades of technical expertise and working knowledge of delivering technically advanced solutions in the most challenging environments both under and above the sea. 

breathable atmosphere on board both submarines and surface shipsOur skilled and experienced teams design, develop and manufacture innovative air management systems that regulate the breathable atmosphere on board both submarines and surface ships.  We are a key supplier to submarine programmes around the world, our designs minimise noise, vibration, electromagnetic interference and chemical discharges – making them quieter than their predecessors and harder to detect.

Our technical skills and understanding of major UK Sonar Systems comes from working on programs such as Sonar 2054, 2074, 2093, 2193 and 2076, as well as development of shore-based, commercial and special fit equipment.  We have completed a number of work packages on the Astute Common Core Combat System and provided technical engineering and management support to the T&V roll out, as well as various activities on the Astute and Successor class submarines.

TP Group has supplied systems on both nuclear and non-nuclear submarines around the world.  Our international client list relies on us to provide full life-cycle support for any underwater or surface programme.

Carbon Dioxide Removal Units
Ship builders from around the world use TP Groups Carbon Dioxide Removal Units on the most advanced AIP (Air Independent Propulsion) submarines.

We design and manufacture CO2 scrubbers utilising the most compact technology available, fully compliant with quality standards that are low energy, very quiet and sea proven with over 50 years of service.

Hydrogen Purification
Initially developed and supplied for non-military applications our Hydrogen Purifiers, which produce ultra-pure Hydrogen, are used in Fuel cells on submarines.

TP Groups Purifiers use selective diffusion technology to select, ionise, purify and reform Hydrogen molecules into pure gas ready for use.

Carbon Monoxide – Hydrogen Catalytic Burners
Our Catalytic burners provide safe breathing environments in-service worldwide; controlling background Carbon Monoxide and Hydrogen levels.

Bespoke design and manufactured to customer requirements and criteria; including volume of Submarine atmosphere, power available, and background of CO levels required.

Waste Tank Air & Odour Filter
We supply cost efficient, customised high integrity waste tank air and odour filters tailored to individual requirements and needs.

Designed and qualified to withstand accelerations of 150g, our current cylindrical filters allow the level in the waste tank to rise and fall without polluting the surrounding atmosphere.

Reformer Technology
TP Group has produced reformers for a variety of customers to deliver Hydrogen generating capability, using diffusion bonding technology to create a strong and extremely compact vessel.

Smoke Removal Unit
Our Smoke Removal Unit can clear a room of smoke and restore visibility in under 8 minutes.

Following a fire breakout, as well as extinguishing the fire, it is crucial to stop harmful particles from polluting the submarine atmosphere.  The Smoke Removal Unit is a simple to use, portable and lightweight system that is fast acting and low maintenance.

HVAC – Heating Venting Air Conditioning systems
TEXVENT™ is a total air distribution system composed mainly of textile ducting, providing a number of advantages over traditional metal ducting systems.

Fitted to all UK Royal Navy ships and submarines as well as several international Navies; TEXVENT™ is flexible and easy to install, cost efficient to maintain, and is shock qualified.
