Allspeeds to Showcase New Cable Retrieval Tool at Subsea Expo

Allspeeds informed that it will introduce its latest developments in cable gripper and retrieval tools, and electrically operated subsea cutters, at Subsea Expo 2017.

Reportedly, the new Webtool cable gripper allows the safe and controlled recovery of damaged power and telecoms cable up to 8” diameter.

The hydraulically operated, cable lifting tool is designed for cable retrieval and decommissioning projects.The mechanically locked gripping action ensures the cable cannot escape during retrieval.

The company will also present its new ROV resettable Emergency Disconnect Cutter for well intervention systems.

By making the cutter ROV resettable it avoids the need to return the cutter to the surface vessel for resetting, the company explained.

“With the growth in offshore wind further offshore, recovering damaged power cable can be time consuming and expensive. The cable gripper offers offshore wind operators a quicker and more cost-effective means of lifting and lowering previously damaged cables,” said Keith Elliot, engineering director, Allspeeds.
