Maximizing Subsea Controls Equipment for Global Operators.

We are an award-winning high-tech DaaS model business, specializing in control system distribution solutions for the global subsea oil and gas industry. Our innovative products and services provide cutting-edge subsea distribution technology and consultancy services. We engineer practical solutions for the real problems that our clients experience on a day-to-day basis while helping reduce costs and increase production efficiency.

We have been helping operators around the world to avoid costly umbilical replacement, mitigate loss of production and keep the lights on since 2012. Our V-LIFE technology is the only preventative and active ‘healing’ solution for low insulation resistance caused by water ingress. Widely used across six continents, V-LIFE is the leading alternative to subsea interventions.

Subsea Insulation Resistance Monitoring & Recovery.

The integrity of electrical power circuits is mission-critical to the production of oil and gas from subsea wells in fields around the globe. Damaged and faulty cables will eventually allow seawater to ingress onto the conductors, causing low IR and leakage currents, which can be hazardous to personnel and will eventually lead to system shutdown. The saltwater also acts as an electrolyte, promoting a chemical reaction that can erode and weaken the copper conductors, which may accelerate the time taken for a fault condition to occur.

The risks associated with operating electrical equipment subsea make it imperative to continuously monitor the integrity of the insulation of these circuits throughout the operational life of the system and then react quickly and effectively as soon as a fault is identified.

Due to the criticality of IR to our customers and the huge number of low IR faults reported by subsea operators, we have invested heavily in the research and development of IR monitoring and recovery technologies and products. The results of this investment include state-of-the-art line insulation monitoring hardware (V-LIM) and a unique passivation technology that can recover the IR in failed circuits (V-LIFE).
