Viper Subsea’s V-Life deploys an electrokinetic and electrochemical process to minimize and mitigate the effect of water ingress into the insulation of subsea cables and umbilicals. The standalone device can be retrofitted into topside equipment to monitor the insulation resistance, voltage, and current of the subsea umbilical. Online data recovery optimizes the configuration data and provides regular integrity reports. When fitted to aging umbilicals with water ingress problems, the device increases the insulation resistance of the umbilical and the subsea electrical distribution system. The restorative function is only applied when the device is in use; thus, permanent connection to the umbilical electrical conductors is required.
