C-Kore tools overcome the issues of traditional testing. They remove the problems that plague downline based testing, from the slow deployment and dubious reliability of the downlines themselves to the effects of inclement weather on deck-based reading accuracy. Likewise, as C-Kore units are deployed directly by the intervention vessel there is no longer a need to use slow and cumbersome platform-led testing, where intervention vessels are left waiting for a busy platform to find time for their tests. Both approaches can easily add many hours to every test, adding up to days of vessel time.
By removing the need to use downlines or platform-led testing, C-Kore tools significantly speed up fault-finding operations and reduce downtime required for fault investigation. When deployed by ROV, C-Kore units easily fit in the tooling tray for extremely fast deployment. For divers, C-Kore is lightweight and easy to handle. We use an innovative low-voltage testing technique, so divers do not have to retreat during testing and SCMs are safe from damage. Testing itself is also faster than with traditional methods thanks to test automation and data logging.
