Subsea cutting

Mission-critical cutting equipment delivering predictable performance

Overview

Subsea cutting equipment that ranges from saw control systems to highly sophisticated diamond wire saws

The development of effective underwater cutting equipment requires a unique combination of knowledge, such as of subsea (electric) drives, advanced control systems, (diamond wire) cutting technology, and in certain cases, excavation technology. Seatools’ successful merger of these knowledge fields results in subsea cutting tools that deliver predictable performance, irrespective of encountered conditions. Together with our subsea cutting technology partners, we possess all the required knowledge and act as a system integrator that delivers full-fledged underwater cutting tools. Capitalizing on this competitive advantage, we have developed and delivered mission-critical equipment such as the Koersk saw control system and the Barracuda response tool. Because cutting equipment failure would have severe consequences in both cases, predictability and reliability are of paramount importance. Seatools excelled in both cases, and proved to be a technology provider able to meet these stringent criteria.

Expertise
  • Subsea cutting equipment (including diamond wire saws)
  • Advanced saw control systems
  • Technology for well plugging and abandonment
Value creation
  • Cutting tools that deliver predictable performance
  • Operational risk reduction thanks to extensive cutting operation automation
  • Combination with excavation technologies for effective decommissioning tools
Track record
  • Control systems for mission-critical subsea saws
  • All-electric subsea diamond wire saw with depth rating of 10,000 feet

Because “as-built” data can deviate from reality, advanced control systems are required to gain feedback, control the cutting process, and avoid overfeeding. Do you require controlled operations as well?

HOW WE CREATE VALUE

  • Cutting tools that deliver predictable performance

    Subsea cutting tools that deliver predictable performance

    Subsea cutting operations require careful planning and preparation. Selecting the right diamond wire and equipment setup is an important part of the process. Enabled by a long R&D trajectory with our subsea cutting technology partners, the combination of our cutting technology with standardized procedures results in subsea cutting tools that deliver predictable performance.

  • Operational risk reduction thanks to extensive automation of cutting operations

    Underwater cutting operation automation

    Our underwater cutting equipment integrates sophisticated monitoring and control systems. in a highly automated manner. Cutting automation greatly enhances operational reliability, as it rules out the risk of overfeeding, and achieves optimal cutting speeds.

  • Combination with excavation technologies for effective decommissioning tools

    Subsea cutting combined with excavation technologies

    The combination of subsea cutting knowledge and subsea penetration technologies facilitates the development of effective tools for plugging and abandonment operations. The removal of assets below the mudline (such as pilings) requires an effective combination of both technology classes. Seatools has a large knowledge base in both areas.
