The UCS Coating Removal Tool (CRT) removes all types of protective coatings including concrete weight coat, epoxy, bitumen and FBE on subsea pipelines and platform jacket members. The system utilises high-pressure water, with the capacity to clean structures with diameters of 152mm to 1500mm.

The CRT is controlled via a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system, with underwater cameras and related technologies giving real-time information in graphical format for topside teams. Two opposing high-pressure water jets sweep and clean the product while linear, rotational, nozzle standoff and sweep speeds are controlled topside by UCS personnel.
