Downtime in subsea production systems causes significant economic losses. Quick fault identification and rectification are key to reducing life of field costs. GE Oil & Gas MECON Wet Mate connector is a clean environment connector emphasizing reliability and process control. This connector has been designed to withstand full system voltage when mechanically mated but electrically dis-engaged without any insulation breakdown. These characteristics allow for systematic fault searching and can significantly reduce the cost of failures in subsea power and processing systems.
