Hydraulic cutting tools specialist, Webtool, is set to announce the latest developments in next generation, cable gripper and retrieval tools, and electrically operated subsea cutters, at Subsea Expo 2017. The stand will feature the Webtool cable gripper, allowing the safe and controlled recovery of damaged power and telecoms cable up to 8-inch diameter.

The hydraulically operated, cable lifting tool is designed for cable retrieval and decommissioning projects. Fabricated from corrosion resistant steel and stainless steel, the mechanically locked gripping action ensures the cable cannot escape during retrieval. Also, featured on the stand will be the latest developments in electric cutters giving all electric ROVs a Webtool cutting capability for softline ropes and guidewires.

In addition to the range of Webtool hydraulic cutters for steel and fibre ropes, the stand will also feature the new ROV resettable Emergency Disconnect Cutter for well intervention systems. The Webtool emergency cutter is a simpler and quicker emergency disconnection than more complex multi-line stab-plate systems for mixed material bundles. By making the cutter ROV resettable it avoids the need to return the cutter to the surface vessel for resetting.

“With the growth in offshore wind further offshore, recovering damaged power cable can be time consuming and expensive. The cable gripper offers offshore wind operators a quicker and more cost-effective means of lifting and lowering previously damaged cables,” says Keith Elliot, engineering director, Allspeeds Ltd.

The Webtool range of high performance cutting tools is designed and manufactured exclusively by Allspeeds Ltd.
