Dredging case study
Dredging, coating removal and cutting of damaged pipeline for Allseas UK
Allseas UK, tasked with developing the pipelines connecting the Total Laggan-Tormore gas fields 125km north-west of the Shetland Islands, encountered a damaged flowline due to a dragged vessel anchor.
The initial phase of the project involved the use of an 8” UCS Dredge System with a bespoke-designed high pressure Barracuda head to clear a channel under the damaged pipework. The Coating Removal Tool (CRT) effectively and rapidly removed concrete coating and 3LPP undercoating to a depth of 1.2m.
