The movement of subsea production systems into water depths beyond practical diver working range presents challenges in the ability to install and maintain the equipment. The partitioning of systems into manageable pieces is critical to their successful remote installation and maintenance. Consideration of equipment size and weight with respect to support equipment constraints and ROV capabilities has resulted in a set of equipment that is flexible in its application to deep water requirements. A complete set of support tooling for installation of umbilicals, control pods, electrical and hydraulic distribution modules and their associated interconnections in deep water has been proven.
