UK-based subsea cable accessory specialist Power CSL has launched a high voltage jointing system suitable for offshore repairs of wide range of high voltage subsea cables.

The system is expected to drastically reduce the cost of repairing subsea cables in the offshore renewables and oil & gas sectors, according to Power CSL.

It takes 48-60 hours to install, cutting down the waiting time for a suitable weather window and repair vessel time on station, Power CSL informed.

Pat Oakley, Director at Power CSL, said: “The jointing system is not associated with the cables of any particular manufacturer and its modular design can be configured for a wide range of connections. This product will substantially increase the UK and European supply chain capacity for HV subsea cable repair, improving the availability of trained jointers and radically reducing the time it takes to repair faults on critical subsea power connections.”

Furthermore, the company offers a training programme for suitably qualified personnel from client companies for the repair joint installation.

“We would simply offer the joint in kit form so that the clients’ trained technicians can install the product offshore. It’s another significant cost-saving factor and puts response time in the client’s control,” concluded Oakley.
