Webtool Cable Gripper Gets DNV GL Verification

Webtool’s CRT200 cable retrieval tool has received design verification approval from international certification body and classification society, DNV GL.

Designed to allow the safe and controlled recovery of damaged cable and umbilical, up to 8” (203 mm) diameter, the CRT200 meets the requirements of DNVGL-ST-N001 Marine Operations & Marine Warranty, June 2016 and DNVGL-ST-0378 Standard for Offshore & Platform Lifting Appliances, May 2016.

The CRT200 cable gripper provides a streamlined cable recovery where the gripper, guided by an ROV, is lowered onto the end of the cable without requiring preliminary clearing of the soil around the cable.

The mechanically locked gripping action ensures the umbilical cannot escape during retrieval; moreover, an internal clutch mechanism prevents damage from overtightening.

The CRT200 cable gripper weighs approx. 600 kg and has a lifting capacity of 20 tonnes. It can be used at any water depth, and is available with hydraulic hotstab or torque bucket interface options, the company noted.

“Webtool is committed to developing innovative tools for offshore projects,” said Keith Elliot, engineering director, Allspeeds Ltd. “The DNV GL design verification allows us to offer industry-leading engineering to offshore contractors looking for a better way of recovering umbilical and cable from any water depth.”

The Webtool range of cutting tools is designed and manufactured exclusively by Allspeeds.
