TOROCON is a ROV based Connection system delivered to Statoil for the Tordis/Vigdis projects.
The system comprises several tools and kits special developed for being handled, installed and operated by ROV’s.
All tools are buoyent in water and will be deployed in a tool basket.
The tools are hydraulic and mechanical operated directly by the ROV’s, hence they do not need any separate control system. Also, TOROCON system do not need any special purpose vessel operating tug wirers or control umbilicals.
The individual tools are easy to maintain and to operate, hence the TOROCON system offers increaced flexibility and less operational time compared to more traditional and complicated ‘all-in-one’ connection tool systems.
TOROCON can easily be adopted for other subsea fields.
