U.K. based subsea testing company C-Kore Systems announced 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."
Greg added: "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.”
