"We are absolutely delighted and honoured to have been selected as the winning company. This is very much the South West's most prestigious business award and the rigour of the judging process justifies the high standing of the award within the business community. The award is a recognition that all our staff can celebrate and are very proud of the achievement." Neil Douglas Managing Director and business co-founder
V-IR is a network integrity monitoring system that deploys a network of subsea IR monitors (V-SLIM) along with a topside installed monitor (V-LIM) to break down the system into sections. V-IR identifies emerging, and active electrical faults within a section, without subsea intervention. The digital display provides complete visibility of the subsea distribution system’s electrical integrity and fault location, enabling faster and more accurate repair, improved spares management and minimises service outage.
V-LIFE is proven technology, installed by 18 operators worldwide and acts as both a preventative and active 'healing' measure of low insulation resistance caused by water ingress. By deploying an electro-kinetic and electrochemical process, the V-LIFE can minimise and mitigate the effect of water ingress into the insulation. It is a standalone device that can be readily retrofitted into topside equipment or provided as a function of the V-LIM.
Subsea electro-hydraulic and all-electric control systems rely on the integrity of the electrical elements within the main umbilical, the electrical jumpers, and electrical connectors throughout the subsea distribution system. This paper looks at a range of examples of failures, the causes, the consequences, and also reviews different design solutions to avoid such failures.
In this paper, we present a study into the physical and practical limitations of different power transmission techniques for long offset tiebacks. The results from the study present a definitive operating envelope for varying offset tiebacks and subsea power demands.
