Viper Subsea has won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation for its V-LIFE electrical insulation resistance improvement system.
The Queen’s Award in Innovation is awarded following recommendation from the Prime Minister and was conferred on April 21, 2016.
“We are honoured to receive this award,” said Neil Douglas, managing director. “V-LIFE represents British innovation at its finest. It has been developed to specifically address a problem that affects many offshore oil and gas fields and its success is testament to its effectiveness. It is the right technology at the right time, but key to its success has been the efforts of the team here at Viper Subsea in developing a high quality product based on innovative technology that is being well managed into the marketplace, and supported with superior levels of customer service. The Queen’s Award is one which all staff here at Viper Subsea share. I couldn’t be more proud of our collective effort.”
V-LIFE, launched in 2013, was developed for the rejuvenation of subsea umbilicals and distribution equipment with insulation resistance failures.
