Parkburn Dynamic System Test Facility


Parkburn Precision Handling Systems (PPHS) is the world’s most experienced supplier of specialist marine telecoms cable handling systems and equipment.

From producing our first system in 1970 for the British Post Office Cableship CS Alert, PPHS has led the market to the present day, developing handling technologies through hydraulic to the latest state of the art, all AC electric digitally controlled systems.

As part of its turnkey deck spread supply capability, Parkburn can offer its clients a full dynamic system test, prior to delivery of the equipment to the shipyard / owner.

The purpose built test facility at Parkburn Telford provides the shipyard / owner the option to witness the fully commissioned system in operation prior to delivery, whereby the port and starboard cable lines are ran in synchronisation with a continuous loop of test rope.

The main advantage of conducting a dynamic system test is test is the greatly reduced commissioning time needed on board the vessel, as any system de-bugging, in–line synchronisation settings and controls adjustments can be made at the factory, to the clients preference, prior to delivery. After testing is complete and prior to system packing and despatch, Parkburn also offers its clients the opportunity of “hands on” system operations and maintenance training, again helping the clients personnel understand in detail the handling system prior to onboard function testing and sea trials.
