DeepOcean 1 UK Ltd has launched RECONNECT, a subsea cable repair service committed to reducing the time and cost of repairing and replacing subsea power cables.
RECONNECT aims to reduce the likelihood of cable damage and subsequent failure through periodic inspection and maintenance, whilst reducing the impact upon the operator should a cable failure occur.
According to DeepOcean, the RECONNECT service includes shallow and deep-water solutions for array, export and interconnector replacement or repair jointing,
“This service builds upon the many DeepOcean in-house strengths and has a strong focus on two key areas – rapid front end preparatory works and high sea state operability,” Jonathan Edwards, Business Development Director said.
”Over the years we have completed a number of successful repairs on different types of products in various water depths, using appropriate vessels or barges, and we’d be very pleased to explore how this experience can be applied to other projects and scenarios.
In addition, and crucially, we believe that we have identified methods and techniques that can reduce the cost of an offshore repair in comparison to other available market offerings.” SOURCE: OW
