A new cost effective subsea cable repair service has been launched which promises to reduce the time and cost of repair and replacement for operators.

DeepOcean 1 UK Ltd’s new RECONNECT service has been established 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.

“We are very pleased to be highlighting this safe and high-quality capability. 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,” said Jonathan Edwards, business development director, DeepOcean.

Reduced costs

Mr Edwards explained that DeepOcean has completed a number of successful repairs on different types of products in various water depths, using appropriate vessels or barges.

But that the experience gained with the new service will 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,” he said.

DeepOcean said that the benefits of RECONNECT include fFault identification and fault location services with a 24/7 emergency contact point.

The service also includes support from DeepOcean’s unique in-house engineering, geotechnical and operational experience, storage and management of cable, joints, spares and consumables, plus cable decommissioning, recovery and disposal.

To date, DeepOcean has installed over 1,600km of power cable and performed over 10,000 vessel days of subsea inspection and repair activities.
