LIRA testing on inter array cables in UK

Wirescan has received a PO for LIRA testing of several inter array cable strings offshore UK. The test will be performed during a several days campaign in February 2018, and the LIRA result will be used as a fingerprint for future cable condition monitoring and fault location. Our client is using LIRA due to the comprehensive result from the non-destructive LIRA test. The LIRA system is highly  sensitive in detecting joints, damages and degradations along the cable, in addition to providing a global condition assessment figure for the complete cable string.
