IMPROVE SAFETY AND EFFICIENCY OF SUBSEA OPERATIONS WITH CHUKAR WATERJET’S DEEPWATER SUBSEA WATERJET EQUIPMENT.
Chukar Waterjet’s underwater waterjet cutting and blasting equipment is capable of operating at depths in excess of 3000 meters and is effective at cutting steel up to 250 mm thick or waterjet blasting at pressures up to 3900 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. Chukar systems quickly blast away even the toughest coatings, including three-layer polypropylene (3LPP), and provide a safer, more effective method for cutting multi-string grouted casings for well severance.
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 of Mexico oil spill, when the company was asked to rapidly manufacture a system to clear a clogged containment system 1500 meters underwater.
