Offshore Power Generation Hydraulic Power
For a large offshore power generation project Hyspecs supplied 5
hydraulic powerunits, 20 cylinders, interconnecting pipework and
assisted our customer on-site to pass factory acceptance tests.
The powerunits were designed, manufactured, third-party
inspected and tested in-house at Hyspecs premises in Dandenong, VIC
before being shipped. Because the application is power generation,
the hydraulic design and component selection was critical to give
long term reliability and offer failsafe operation.
LNG Project - Crane Hydraulics
HYSPECS Melbourne was contracted by one of
Australia's leading crane manufacturers to supply 4 hydraulic
powerunits (HPU's) and associated valving to power their luffing
jib cranes. These cranes form part of a large liquid natural gas
(LNG) project in Australia.
The HPU's were designed, manufactured and tested in-house at
HYSPECS premises in Dandenong, VIC before being shipped. The cranes
operate in a hazardous area defined as IEC Ex Zone 2, so the
electrical equipment supplied was required to meet this standard.
To reduce the electrical explosion proof content with its high
costs a hydraulic pilot system was designed to operate the crane
and control the working limits.
Grape Harvester - Nairn Harvesters Ltd
When Hydraulic Specialties was
approached by the production manager at Nairn Harvesters Ltd to
offer a drive system for their latest grape harvester there were 2
key criteria they stressed to us: delivery needed to be short as
the customer had requested delivery of the completed machine in
under 2 months, and the system needed to work well right from the
start (there was no time for trial and error).
• 4-wheel drive system with anti-skid
• Harvesting at a speed of 6km/hr on a gradient of up to
• The machine would be able to climb a gradient of nearly
• Under ideal harvesting conditions it is capable of removing up
to 28,000kg of grapes off the vine per hour
• Top road speed of 32km/h (could be 39 km/h with a different
Fishing Vessel Conversion - Austral Leader 2
The Hyspecs service team was involved
in the complete conversion of the fishing vessel, Austral
Leader 2 from a purse seiner net fisher to a long liner. The job,
in summary, was the refitting of a vessel to a line hauler and pot
hauler for the Patagonian tooth fish for which our customer fishes
in the South Atlantic.
It involved several stages and over 1500 hours work by our
service technicians over the course of around 8 weeks. Not only
were we providing new equipment but also had to utilise existing
I would like to thank you for the prompt and professional
service you have provided regarding the hydralic motor and gear box
I have recently purchased. After having experienced a
number unsatisfactory outcomes from other businesses
in recent times it was refreshing to deal with both an
individual and company that is so customer focused.
