C-Kore Systems have verified the installation of 3 new umbilicals in the North Sea for a major oil company. The field is one of the biggest subsea projects being developed in the UK sector of the North Sea.
The patented C-Kore Subsea Testing Tools were used both to prove cables subsea during installation and from the FPSO after hookup to the subsea control modules. Due to unique low-voltage IR testing technology, the C-Kore units allow testing of cables without requiring isolation of sensitive control modules electronics.
Tim Overfield, managing director of C-Kore commented, “This is another application of our technology proving to save our customers time and money by simplifying their offshore testing processes.”
The C-Kore Subsea Testing Tools modernize subsea electrical testing by eliminating the need to use down-lines. The units provide quick and accurate data, confirming the health or finding faults in umbilicals, EFLs, SCMs, distribution units and even down-hole applications.
