C-Kore Quickly Locates Subsea Faults Offshore Australia
18.10.2021C-Kore Systems successfully executed an electrical fault-finding campaign on a subsea field offshore Australia. Both the C-Kore Cable Monitor units (IR) and Subsea TDR units were used to test the subsea electrical control system and identify the precise location of insulation resistance faults. The ease of deployment from the ROV, equipment reliability, and the quick andaccurate results provided by the C-Kore units allowed the operator to efficiently locate line faults and initiate repairs, ensuring the campaign was a great success.
C-Kore Systems has a range of subsea testing tools used globally by operators and contractors on both fault-finding operations and new installation campaigns. The tools are easy to deploy, do not require ROV interface modifications, are operated without the need of C-Kore personnel to be present, and provide quick and accurate feedback. This combination of simplicity, accuracy and reliability introduces significant operational savings to testing campaigns.
The operator’s Principal Subsea Engineer commented, “C-Kore’s testing units did everything we needed simply and efficiently - they are excellent kit. The Subsea TDR was easy to operate, interpret and gave very accurate results. We look forward to using the tools again on future mobilisations.”
Greg Smith, General Manager of C-Kore commented further, “It’s gratifying to see the Subsea TDR, like the other C-Kore tools before it, consistently receiving great reviews from our customers. Keeping the units simple to use, yet versatile is key to our design philosophy. With the current pandemic, it’s often crucial for our customers that no extra offshore personnel are needed when deploying C-Kore units, not even with the Subsea TDR. We very much look forward to working with this operator on future Australian campaigns.”
