C-Kore Systems are proud to announce a new ‘in-line’ version of their C-Kore subsea testing tools. The streamlined design makes it possible to connect into hard-to access equipment, such as cylindrical UTAs or high-density connector layouts. Eight of the new units have just been delivered for a fault-finding operation in the North Sea with a major operator.
C-Kore’s Subsea testing tools save customers time and money on new installation projects and fault-finding operations by simplifying the subsea testing process. The compact Cable Monitor tests the health of electrical lines by measuring the insulation resistance and continuity. The Subsea TDR identifies faults along electrical lines with a precision of 10cm.
Greg Smith, General Manager for C-Kore Systems commented: “Many of our customers have access issues with their subsea equipment. There just isn’t enough space. In the past we’ve resorted to extension whips but this introduces another variable in the measurements. With our new in-line units we can now plug directly into the equipment even when clearance is tight, ensuring accurate readings. Our philosophy is to overcome obstacles with simple easy-to-use products, which is exactly what the new design does.”
C-Kore Systems will be presenting and exhibiting at the Subsea Controls Down Under conference in Perth 23rd-24th October. Please stop by if you are attending. For further information on our innovative subsea testing technology, please visit our website, www.c-kore.com.
C-Kore Systems, has recently celebrated the deployment of its 100th C-Kore unit. This milestone was reached on a fault-finding campaign with a major oil company in the North Sea.
The units have simplified subsea testing in over 30 different fields worldwide and helped both major oil companies and their installation contractors on installation/construction and fault-finding campaigns. The easy-to-use units save customers time and money by considerably reducing the time needed for electrical testing, providing quick and accurate insulation resistance and continuity measurements of electrical lines.
Over 20 new assets have been installed subsea worldwide. The low-voltage testing technology even allows safe measurement of sensitive electronic equipment and SCMs. The compact size of the units allows for quick movement through subsea fields in fault-finding operations, locating over 30 faults to date. The time savings are significant with one customer even saving 5 vessel days in a single campaign!
Tim Overfield, managing director of C-Kore commented, “This success is a great testament to our game changing technology and hard work. Keeping the units simple to use, while giving quick and accurate test results saves our customers a lot of money. The fact that our customers repeatedly come back with new deployment opportunities for our technology really proves their added value.”
C-Kore Systems, a UK based company, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with VAYCO Oil Tools to promote their C-Kore Subsea Testing Tools in Nigeria and other West Africa countries.
The C-Kore testing tools save customers significant time and money on installation/commissioning campaigns and fault-finding operations by automating and significantly speeding up the subsea testing process. The units are pre-programmed to test as chosen by the customer. They are quickly installed subsea and provide accurate results by removing the effects of down-lines, weather conditions and operator error in traditional testing equipment.
Mike McVay, Managing Director of VAYCO Oil Tools, stated: “We look forward to working closely with C-Kore Systems to bring their umbilical measurement and diagnostic technology to the West African market, assisted by our local JV partner Cranium Engineering, based in Nigeria. Our aim is to replicate the success C-Kore System have had in Europe and the Americas by offering C-Kore’s unique technology together with our existing Subsea hardware product line and services to provide customers with added value and significant cost savings.”
Sola Adekunle, CEO of Cranium Engineering Ltd. added: “Cranium is excited about deploying this New Technology for the first time in Nigeria and across West Africa, adding direct value to our clients’ bottom line by simplifying Integrity Monitoring, thereby reducing Operating Costs and Production Deferment. Cranium is a Specialist Engineering Service Provider and VAYCO Oil Tools with their partnership with C-Kore is a perfect fit into Cranium’s portfolio of Innovative Solutions for Deepwater players.”
Tim Overfield, managing director of C-Kore said, “This is an exciting step for C-Kore Systems. We are pleased to be working with VAYCO Oil Tools and their local Nigerian partner, Cranium Engineering. Our C-Kore Subsea Testing technology offers great savings to operators, especially in the deep-water applications in the West African region.”
C-Kore Systems Ltd. has been approved and certified by TÜV (UK) as conforming to the new ISO 9001:2015 standard in Quality Management System. The scope of the certification is: “The design, manufacture and through-life engineering services of subsea measurement instruments.”
Tim Overfield, Managing Director of C-Kore Systems Ltd. said: “We are delighted to have received ISO 9001:2015 certification as it illustrates to our customers, suppliers and partners that C-Kore Systems Ltd. is committed to continually improving all aspects of its business. Furthermore, it demonstrates that in order to be the default tool for field testing of subsea umbilicals, cables and equipment by the World’s leading Oil and Gas companies, we continue our investment in quality, design, technology, resources and business processes. The new quality standard, with its increased requirements is an external recognition of our Quality Policy to ensure that our customers are satisfied with our products and services.”
Subsea UK News reports on C-Kore Systems becoming the preferred partner of choice with both operators and installations contractors, saving them money on fault finds and installation/commisioning campaigns.
The article highlights the use of C-Kore units both on land and subsea to test the health or find faults in all electrical asstes, including umbilicals, EFLs, SCMs and distribution units. Due to the use of low voltage technology there is no risk of damage to SCMs.
