Electrical torque tools with inductive connection
Electrical subsea torque tools are finally ready for the subsea market after years of development at different companies in the industry. The market has been somewhat reluctant as most of the ROV fleet are still hydraulically powered and equipped, and there isarevery few electrical subsea connectors available on the marked suitable for these applications. Blue Logic AS and WPC have developed an electrical torque tool system which can be powered through an innovative and flexible inductive connector system named "Subsea USB". This system allows for easy tool changes while subsea. Pin configuration and grounding problems disappear instantly!
