Wellis MPcD invests in in-house research and product development and has a skilled and dedicated management, mechanical and control engineering team. State-of-the-art software is used, with 3D CAD and FEA software playing an important role. Thanks to our full-scale PCD test site, Wellis MPcD is able to develop, test and qualify its products in-house. The complete PCD system can be run in simulated drilling conditions at our test site, allowing us to develop and evaluate new innovative concepts at an early stage.

Wellis MPcD has an on-going development programme for new innovative products. As of today, our PCD is only available commercially as a topside system for fixed installations. However, the patented sealing technology used in our PCD system is eminently suitable for subsea/below tension ring use, e.g. in an RPCD (Riser Pressure Control Device) application where the seal cartridge concept is easily run inside the riser.
