V-LIFE is Successfully Installed in Norway

August 9, 2018

We are pleased to announce our first installation in Norway for a major operator in the region which took place as a result of recent tests which were carried out on an electrical distribution system, which was recovered during a repair campaign.

These tests have once again proven and reinforced the technology’s key benefit of improving insulation resistance from the topsides installed device, as an alternative to a subsea campaign. The tests have also instilled confidence for the operator so much so that they have carried out their first field installation. Talks are also in the advanced stages with another Norwegian operator, with a view to install in the coming months.

With a cumulative field deployment of over 125 years, V-LIFE has proven its ability to actively improve subsea cable IR readings. Its capability gives operators more choices and new options in how they manage and optimize their assets. Its effects are no longer unknown or can be classed as ‘black magic’. It is now an established, proven piece of technology that, in some applications, can be a real gamechanger.

The Viper Innovations team will be showcasing our electrical integrity expertise on stand 7560, Hall 7 at ONS 2018 taking place in Stavanger.
