Pile cutting & dredging tools
Essential decommissioning tooling
Efficiently cut piles below the seabed with Claxton’s in-house developed pile cutting and dredging tooling, essential for offshore decommissioning campaigns.
Claxton’s pile cutting and dredging equipment is the flexible solution to the decommissioning of piles. The development of the tooling is supported by Claxton’s deep experience and knowledge of subsea abrasive cutting and our SABRE™ tool. The internal pile cutting system is remotely operated and can be deployed from a multitude of facilities including vessels, rigs, jack-up lift barges and platforms.
Applications include pile severance on jackets and subsea infrastructure, casing and conductor severance and well abandonment.
The pile cutting system is complemented by Claxton’s dredging tooling which is a simple effective solution to pile dredging operations on subsea piles. The tool was developed using Claxton’s expertise in response to industry demand, resulting in a refined design which operates at low costs whilst achieving high excavation rates.
Benefits of Claxton’s pile cutting and dredging tooling include:
- Minimises risk and increases overall project efficiency
- Reduces personnel on board (POB) for pile cutting and dredging operations
- Environmentally friendly with minimal waste piling
- Portable pile cutting tool with an internal or external cutting rig
- Multi-deployable from various vessels
- High excavation performance
