V-LIFE Insulation Resistance Recovery.

Recover the Electrical Integrity of Subsea Circuits.

V-LIFE is a preventative and active ‘healing’ solution for low insulation resistance caused by water ingress.

The most common cause of subsea electrical failures is the ingress of water into the cable insulation, which decreases the IR and may produce short circuits or leakage to earth. These faults often lead to loss of power and/or communications to subsea equipment and have the potential to halt production from subsea wells.

Keeping The Lights On In East Java With V-LIFE.

In this case study, discover how the V-LIFE product was used to keep the lights on in East Java by recovering a failed gas field electrical system with an 18-month replacement umbilical lead time.

This case study is an example of where V-LIFE has been used to recover and extend the life of a failed electrical system – with a significant benefit to the client.
