Cable and Umbilical Recovery with DNV GL Approved Recovery Tool
Webtool announces the CRT200 Cable Gripper Hire Fleet with an initial three CRT200 Cable Retrieval Tools available for immediate hire. The only DNV GL approved cable recovery tool, the CRT200 allows the safe and controlled subsea recovery of damaged cable and umbilical up to 1500 metres water depth.
Designed for large diameter cable up to 203 mm (8”) diameter, the CRT200 cable gripper provides a streamlined cable recovery where the gripper, guided by an ROV, is lowered onto the end of the cable with minimal clearing of the soil around the cable. The mechanically locked gripping action ensures the umbilical cannot escape during retrieval; moreover, the hot stab version contains an internal clutch mechanism to prevent excessive damage from overtightening. By gripping the end of the cable, it makes subsequent handling much easier, enabling the cable to be recovered to a reeler or spooler on the surface vessel.
The CRT200 cable gripper weighs approx. 600 kg and has a maximum load capacity of 20 tonnes. It is available with hydraulic hot stab or torque bucket interface options and can be deployed subsea for up to 20 days between recovery projects.
