These units get control signals from the pipeline Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) system, which can close down the pipeline at any time even if commercial electrical power is not available. Each hydraPAK unit saves onboard power for two strokes of the gate valve.

The Overland Pass pipeline is 750-mile natural gas liquids transportation pipeline from the Southwestern part of Wyoming to underground storage near Wichita, Kansas. The $590 million worth pipeline passes through extremely remote regions requiring Flow-Quip’s valves for control when a shutdown is wanted. The pipeline is planned to bring about 110,000 barrels per day with an expansion option to 255,000 barrels per day with additional pump facilities.
