Morning folks,

Can anyone please advise if they've carried out, or used a 3rd Party, to carry out TDR Testing on cables?

We currently have a 16km Umbilical where we suspect there's a fault in one of the power cables (2c 10mm2). The other power cable is currently powering the equipment subsea so cannot be shut off for testing.

We'd like to mobilise a competent, trained 3rd Party to carry out some testing and correctly interpret the results from the Megger TDR, but I'm struggling to find anyone who's available.

I'd appreciate a list of companies that can carry out this testing.

Thanks for any info,

Not sure of your location but my employer J+S ltd does this service out of Aberdeen, uk, mainly for offshore oil & gas installations
but can do it anywhere.

Hi Niall

This is probably a bit late for you but I would not have thought that a megger TDR would be effective at that range.

For umbilical applications you would be looking at needing to use a SebaKMT T30E ( strangely enough since your original post megger has actually bought the Seba) it has a range of around 60km.

We have meggers, Biccotest and Seba T30E in our hire fleet and I can recommend a number of extremely experienced users if anyone wants to drop me a line.
