Cutting & Recovery
Cutting by use of ROV is a safe and cost effective solution for recovery of subsea objects. Typical items include loading buoys, anchor chains, steel risers & piles, umbilicals and support structures.
Due to a magnitude of different objects, locations and operability, a number of diverless subsea cutting options may be chosen:
- ROV grinder
- ROV wire cutters
- Circular and guillotine saws
- Diamond wire saw
- Hydraulic shearer
- External and internal high pressure grit cutting devices
These tools require mechanical and/ or hydraulic interfacing with an ROV. They may be deployed on the ROV or picked up separately on the seafloor.
DeepOcean provide project management, operational planning, engineering, mobilisation/ demobilisation, ROV vessel, offshore crew and have the overall responsibility of this operation.
