Caley Introduces Portable IWOCS Deployment System
Caley Ocean Systems announced the development of a portable Intervention Work Over Control System (IWOCS) deployment system.
In addition to simplifying the over boarding of IWOCS, it allows a single deployment system to be readily transported between different offshore vessels, Caley said in a press release.
IWOCS are designed to perform testing, control and monitoring functions on a range of subsea equipment including wellheads, manifolds and gas lift modules, for example.
Following Caley’s development of an Alternative IWOCS (AIWOCS) Deployment System in 2014, the IWOC Deployment System is the second generation of Caley’s topside handling equipment designed to provide access to wellheads and manifolds for intervention and workover.
Mounted on a portable skid, the IWOCS Deployment System comprises two elements: a reeler/power unit and an A-frame.
The IWOCS Deployment System is suitable for use in Sea State 6 conditions, enabling intervention and workover operations in a wider range of weather conditions than conventional systems, Caley explained.
“The IWOCS Deployment System marks a significant development in the ease with which operators will be able to use intervention and workover systems to increase field productivity, without the constraints experienced with conventional IWOCS,” said Gregor McPherson, sales director, Caley Ocean Systems.
