Decommissioning

Wind Farms

water jetting for power stations

RGL have developed a remote control under water cutting tool for Met Mast and Wind Turbine Monopile Decommissioning.

Steel Wall thickness of these structures can be up to 100mm and cutting them has previously proved challenging using conventional techniques such as diamond wire or flame cutting.

Our Tool is deployed from a Barge by crane and lowered down inside the monopile where it self-locates and fixes itself ready to perform the cut. The process avoids the need for divers and the tool is controlled remotely by our operators from the Barge above.

Cuts are made quickly and safely, and the tool is recovered to the Barge with the cut pile section.

Well Head Removal

In-situ Well Casing Cutting

Cutting Well Casings and Conductor Pipes often must be undertaken in challenging conditions.

RGL have tools for internal and external cutting of these structures. We have the capability and have successfully completed cuts through multiple tube and casing diameters and wall thicknesses to remove well heads or redundant tubulars.

 

Refinery & Production Plants

RGL provide a range of services that can be deployed when decommissioning a Refinery or Production Plant as follows:

water jetting for power stations

  • Cold cutting without heat or sparks into storage tanks, pipe lines and structural steel in volatile atmospheres
