Offshore staff

BRISTOL, UK – Viper Subsea says it will be showcasing its new V-LOCK hydraulic stab plate, a subsea hydraulic connector providing a critical function in subsea control distribution systems, at the Offshore Technology Conference held in Houston, Texas, May 2-5.

The company says that the device has been developed following extensive consultation with first tier suppliers, end users and installation contractors, and has been designed to meet the demands of the subsea industry for the foreseeable future.

Viper Subsea also notes that the V-LOCK offers leading clamping and separation force, and the secondary release system is positively actuated with no reliance on any form of shearing mechanism. The secondary release system also incorporates a means of providing a separation force, a feature unique to the device, according to Viper Subsea. Separation force is a key consideration particularly for environments prone to build up of marine growth.
