Chukar Waterjet Announces Authorized Representative for Vietnam, Myanmar

MinhAnh Techinfo/Rent-A-Tool Vietnam Supplies Chukar Waterjet’s Innovative Deepwater Subsea Waterjetting Technology to Offshore Industries

Chukar Waterjet, Inc., a leading manufacturer and applications consultant for subsea ultra-high pressure waterjet equipment, announced today that MinhAnh TechInfo Co Ltd / RentATool Vietnam has been named its authorized representative for Vietnam and Myanmar.

MinhAnh TechInfo Co Ltd / RentATool Vietnam is a global supplier and applications consultant to the marine and oil and gas industries.  The Vungtau City-based company offers a wide range of products and services and has extensive engineering experience in the offshore oil and gas industry.

“We are very proud to be represented by MinhAnh TechInfo Co Ltd / RentATool Vietnam,” said Bruce Kivisto, Chukar Waterjet general manager.  “Their commitment and expertise in the offshore oil and gas industry will be a tremendous asset to our clients in Vietnam and Myanmar.”

Chukar Waterjet offers underwater waterjet cutting and blasting equipment capable of operating at depths in excess of 3000 meters. Effective at cutting steel up to 250 mm thick or waterjet blasting at pressures up to 3800 bar, Chukar’s subsea waterjet equipment has numerous applications for deepwater emergency response operations, salvage operations, and rapid de-mobilization operations. It can be used to blast away coatings and marine growth to inspect welds, or as a cutting tool in emergency response and salvage operations.  Waterjetting equipment also may be used to provide turbulence in a stream of methanol for hydrate remediation, an application Chukar developed in emergency response to the Gulf oil spill, when the company was asked to rapidly manufacture a system to clear a clogged containment system 1500 meters underwater.

Waterjet technology has numerous advantages over conventional subsea cutting and cleaning tools. Unlike conventional tools, the tools used in a waterjet system cannot bind in the cut, jeopardizing asset integrity. Waterjet cutting also reduces the hazard of igniting trapped pockets of gas during cutting.
