Abrasive Water Cutting
Intelligent cutting below seabed
A new, innovative way of using the Robotic Crawler.
For cut execution, the crawlers will be fitted with Abrasive Water Cutting Nozzles, which will penetrate the tubular using a mixture of sand and water jetting at ultra-high pressures. Ultrasonic measurements will verify the completeness of the cuts.
This method improves safety and efficiency since
- the cutting sequence is done without using divers as the operations is controlled from a control container
- an ROV can relocate the crawler within the jacket structure to cut at various locations
- you avoid the risk of a wire being stuck under the weight of a platform while cutting
