The Research Institute of Deep sea High-end Equipment System
The Research Institute of Deep sea High-end Equipment System of University of Shanghai for Science and Technology fully utilizes interdisciplinary forces, with the aim of serving national marine strategy and energy security, focusing on deep sea high-end equipment systems as the research object, and focusing on the key generic technologies for deep sea resource extraction equipment. It also conducts research on key common technologies such as marine strategic equipment systems and deep sea resource extraction equipment systems. The research institute undertakes the task of cultivating talents, exploring deep-sea resource research based on disciplines such as automation, materials, machinery, and civil engineering. It also undertakes the tasks of technological industrialization and serving society, and promote the integration, transfer, and industrialization of technology.
The institute has strong technological research and development capabilities. With elites in the fields of offshore oil and gas exploration and ocean engineering, as well as backbone personnel such as the National High Level Talent Special Support Program Leading Talents of the Central Organization Department, the National Hundred and Ten Million Talents Project Innovative Talents, experts who enjoy special government subsidies from the State Council, leading talents in Shanghai, and outstanding technical leaders in Shanghai.
Now it is mainly engaged in the research and development of underwater equipment for hydrate mining, analysis and calculation of underwater rock and soil mechanics, design ， analysis and installation of suction pile (anchor) structure, research and development, manufacturing, and technical services of core equipment such as underwater pipeline connectors, underwater plug-in strong and weak electrical connectors, underwater optoelectronic composite connectors, underwater high-pressure liquid quick plug-in connectors, and underwater control systems. It has conducted underwater geotechnical analysis and calculation, suction anchor structure design, pump skid design and manufacturing, and completed underwater installation for multiple projects such as deep-sea oil and gas development and military industry. The research results have been widely applied, possess industrial functions, and serve society.
The research institute has collaborated with several well-known companies of USA, Norway, and the Netherlands. And it has jointly established the National Engineering Research Center for Oil & Gas Drilling Equipment with Baoji Oilfield Machinery Company, and the National Engineering Laboratory for Marine Engineering Equipment Testing and Testing Technology with China Shipbuilding Industry Group Co., Ltd. 750 Testing Ground. At present, the research institute is equipped with underwater suction anchor (pile) rock and soil mechanics experiments, material chemical analysis laboratories, salt spray laboratories, high and low temperature laboratories, and deep-sea electrical connector underwater insertion and extraction laboratories.
