Viper Subsea Develops Subsea Engineering Solution (UK)

Viper Subsea has announced that it has developed a solution to one of the oldest problems in subsea engineering with the development of the V-SECURETM.

V-SECURETM has been designed to answer the recurring problem of JIC fittings developing leaks during service. There are various reasons for JIC fittings loosening, one of them being the female swivel slackening off because of pressure pulses. By using a robust clamping mechanism, V-SECURETM prevents the connector from loosening once it has been installed, significantly reducing the risk of fluid leakages, and subsequent loss of hydraulic functionality.

As well as being applied to new applications, V-SECURETM can be applied to already-assembled fittings. Another feature that makes them straightforward to use is that V-SECURETM can be removed and refitted over and over again without the need for replacement parts.

Viper Subsea is a subsea engineering company that specialises in the design and delivery of underwater components for the oil and gas sectors, but V-SECURETM can be used for both subsea and surface applications.

Neil Douglas, managing director of Viper Subsea, said: “Operators need to have total confidence in their engineering systems and V-SECURE TM provides a breakthrough by enhancing the resilience of those systems. With the assembly of V-SECURETM consisting of only three parts, it provides a straightforward means of enhancing the robustness of JIC fittings. This in turn improves the dependability of both subsea and surface applications – a huge benefit for operators.”

V-SECURETM is suitable for JIC -4, -6, -8 and -12 fittings.

Viper Subsea was established in 2007 to provide turnkey subsea distribution systems and products, and to offer the market superior total management and consultancy solutions. Led by Neil Douglas and Max Nodder, Viper Subsea has established itself as one of the most talented organisations serving the subsea market.
