The IMES Subsea Electrical Test System (SETS) has been used all over the world to test subsea power and control umbilicals during installation and pre-commissioning. The ROV-deployed equipment tests for Insulation Resistance and Continuity Resistance in depths of up to 3,000m. SETS allows elements of the subsea architecture to be isolated and individually tested, documenting each test in real-time.
To provide this service for the latest technology employed in subsea cabling and communication, Imes International has developed an optical testing system, OPTI-Plus ™. The OPTI-Plus™, an ROV deployed optical cable test system, is designed to complement Imes SETS™. Similar in concept, the systems allow LIVE testing of umbilical, cable and subsea connections whilst providing full control, visualisation and logging at the surface vessel.
