Subsea Innovation Presents Cable Protection Cutting Tool

Subsea Innovation has completed the design, supply and live demonstration of a cable and cable protection system (CPS) cutting tool that can according to the company, remove a CPS without the need for divers.

There were numerous offshore wind industry leaders in attendance – including sales partner Tekmar Energy Limited, DONG Energy, VBMS, Jan de Nul, and CWIND.

The event was held at The Underwater Centre near Fort William in Scotland and involved a full scale demonstration of the installation and removal of a CPS from mock-up offshore foundations.

The Underwater Centre provided a work-class remotely operated vehicle (WCROV) which was launched from an offshore vessel and carried out the operations in Loch Linnhe which is a seawater lake.

The demonstrations were carried out over a two day period. On the first day the removal operation was performed on a mock-up j-tubeless monopile foundation, whereas the second day was reserved to carry out the same operation on a mock-up j-tube. Both demonstrations were considered successful with operations being completed considerably quicker than expected.
