Protecting power for subsea remotely operated vehicle

Electrical Review Logo

Liquid tight conduit from Flexicon is protecting the power supply to subsea ROVs used by Total Marine Technology.

The 63mm LTP conduit and special engineered fittings are protecting the slipring connections inside the winch. This provides 3.3KV feeds to the 3km power transmission system, which connects the subsea ROV to the surface.

In addition to the power cables fibre optic, elements are included in the single cable connection system called an umbilical.

The tail from the slip ring is a loose bundle of copper and fibre optic cables, which terminates in a junction box on the winch. This bundle needs protecting from sea spray and harsh offshore environments to maximize its service life and provide trouble free operation.
