Running on hydraulic power, the DWDWS is controlled remotely using the Topside Control/Hydraulic Power Unit or by ROV control operable via zero leak hot stab with flying lead.
The ergonomic design of the ROV side interface panel allows for simple operation with feedback in the form of flow meters and pressure gauges. Built-in flotation utilises a compact design that does not significantly increase the saws footprint over Ashtead Technology DWS models. Like the DWS the Deepwater DWS features a self-adjusting auto feed system that automatically matches the feed rate to the cutting rate. They are ideal for compressive cuts, or for use on mixed material such as multi-strand steel and concrete casings.
