Rig decommissioning cutting technology
The Prime offshore cutting technology demonstrates versatility and efficiency in a safe and environmentally friendly manner, saving time and the carbon footprint in the process. Prime Marine Services has a fleet of hydraulic cutting shears with five models capable of shearing 6in (15cm) to 70in (178cm) material.
Offshore platform cutting technology
The offshore cutter is the flagship of the Prime pipe cutter line. It is designed to shear. It is designed to remotely cut offshore platform (jacket) piles above or below water. It can shear 24in (60 cm) to 36in (90cm) offshore platform steel conductors filled with grout, and is remotely operated from the surface. The unit comes complete with a 330hp power pack, a 450ft (137m) hose, 500ft (152m) hydraulic hose reel, a 48in (122cm) model Prime pipe cutter, biodegradable hydraulic oil and bio-grease.
At approximately 90ft (27m) under water, the offshore cutter cut a 42in (107cm) leg inside of a collapsed platform in the Gulf of Mexico. Within minutes, the cutter easily tore through the 1in (2.5cm) pipe – 3in (7.6cm) grout – 1in (2.5cm) pipe platform leg.
Offshore dredging technology
Prime Marine Services offers a new dredging method with Toyo pumps. Our Toyo pumps are available for rent on a daily or monthly project. Prime Marine Services will send out a qualified team of personnel to assist with your dredging project, in both shallow or deep water.
LBT Enterprises is pleased to announce that a Prime service centre will be coming soon to Europe, to serve the North Sea.
