Related applications

  • Offshore oil and gas applications
    Offshore oil and gas applications

    Making up nearly 30% of global crude oil production, upstream Offshore Oil and Gas activities are some of the harshest operating environments on the planet. Drilling in waters up to 3,000 meters deep requires equipment that is reliable and safe to maximize operating productivity and prevent unexpected downtime.

  • Onshore oil and gas applications
    Onshore oil and gas applications

    Making up the majority of the world’s total oil production, onshore Oil and Gas activities require a great deal of flexibility and scalability. A variety of oil reserve types, and typically a much greater number of oil wells per reserve than offshore, onshore equipment needs to be flexible and robust.

  • Winches

    Winches are used for a range of applications all over the world. Danfoss hydraulics deliver smooth, safe control.

  • Agriculture

    Farmers need agricultural machines that deliver the same high productivity every season. Hydraulic solutions from Danfoss ensure world-class performance from each machine, and a comfortable, stress-free working environment for their operators.

  • Construction

    Space is limited on construction sites, and there are people working everywhere. Contractors need machines that can safely maneuver in a tight spot. At the same time they still need to be powerful enough to get the job done. At Danfoss, we deliver the components, software, and controls that enable your machines to run safely, efficiently and effectively.
