Hydraulic Systems

Transmitting power through hydraulic systems is almost universal across the offshore industry.

Hydraulic systems are found throughout an offshore installation - on cranes, drill floor power units and hydraulic ring mains and are often located where leakage or spillage can escape into the marine environment. High pressures and large flow rates increase the environmental risk in the event of a hose failure; hence Castrol’s range includes environmentally responsible hydraulic oils.
Reliable power transmission requires the use of highly stable hydraulic fluids with excellent anti-wear performance.
