J+S has 20 years of experience in design, manufacture, repair and replacement of a range of Subsea Control Systems equipment.
J+S has produced a range of Subsea Distribution Assemblies to meet bespoke client requirements for hydraulic, chemical and electrical distribution.
Modular design configured for various subsea applications.
J+S has produced a Subsea Distribution Unit (SDU) design that is modular in construction. This approach makes it easier and more cost-effective to reconfigure the unit for different applications, where different numbers of electrical and hydraulic circuits are required.
Individual sub-assemblies can be removed without recovering the compete SDU.
We work closely with our customers
J+S designs, manufactures, tests and supports installation of the SDU including electrical and hydraulic interfaces and jumpers whilst maintaining physical and functional fidelity with previously installed equipment.
We work closely with our customer at each step in the project, to ensure that we deliver the right product at the right time and right price. Where appropriate, instead of re-using inductive couplers, we use subsea matching transformers, designed and manufactured by J+S for this purpose.
J+S have designed and delivered a range of bespoke Subsea Electrical Distribution units for use as a junction box within a larger system, Subsea Umbilical Termination or stand-alone plug and play requirements.
The Electrical Distribution Box can be used in numerous applications and has several interfacing options such as subsea connectors or J+S high integrity penetrator technology.
This provides a versatile interfacing solution for multiple subsea connection points.
J+S has designed a Subsea Accumulator & Filter Unit (SAFU) in accordance with industry specifications.
Phil has worked in the oil and gas industry for over 25 years. He started his career with Kvaerner FSSL progressing through a variety of roles in subsea engineering, from manufacturing to leading some of their most complex projects all over the world. He worked with the original J+S for a period before moving on to Genesis Oil and Gas as a Subsea Controls Engineering consultant; during that period, he was seconded to Centrica Energy (now Spirit Energy) which led to a permanent role as Lead Subsea Controls & Umbilical Engineer for Developments, Capital Projects and Operated Assets. For almost a decade Phil successfully delivered Capital Projects from concept right through to project close out whilst also looking after the running of their subsea assets.
As part of J&S Subsea limited, Phil will oversee the day-to-day operations and grow the business both in the UK and globally.
James’s career started when he joined the Royal Navy from school as an Artificer Apprentice. After a 5-year Marine Engineering Apprenticeship he served in surface ships HMS Glamorgan, HMS Edinburgh, and HMS Glasgow and at Rosyth as part of an engineering support team.
Moving into the Oil & Gas Industry in 1992, over the next 26 years he gained a wealth of experience within large and small companies on operation, design and project management of subsea control systems and equipment. This period started with several years as a Project Engineer for a family run hydraulic services company Grampian Hydraulics followed by 5 years as a Support Engineer at Kvaerner Oilfield Products. James joined RRC Controls Services ltd in 2001 before finally moving to J+S Ltd in 2010. At J+S his dedication and technical capabilities were rewarded with several promotions until becoming a member of the management buyout team.
He has designed an extensive array of subsea equipment from basic cable penetrators to complete subsea control modules.
James thrives on providing solutions for client’s problems.
As Engineering Director, James will ensure that the company provides clients with timely, cost effective and technically sound solutions and services.
