Using precision concrete hydrodemolitionwe removed defective concrete from a secant pile wall over several visits. By using hydrodemolition rather than traditional techniques the steel reinforcement is left in tact with no damage, as illustrated below. Hydrodemolition is a vibration free method, ensuring the integrity of the structure remains once works are complete, allowing non-conformances to
A recently completed successful project was to develop an abrasive water jet cold cutting rig which can be pushed up small diameter sewer pipes of 300mm diameter + and then used to cut out any metal or concrete obstructions by remote control. This technology has already been successfully deployed on several major jobs where the
We are proud to be exhibiting at Global Offshore Wind next week, the show hosted at ExCel London runs from June 25th-26th and covers all aspects of the Offshore wind market.

Using Hand Held Low Reaction Force Safety Lance our expert team used Precision Hydrodemolition to remove concrete and grout surrounding this bridge bearing. This enabled essential maintenance work to be carried out, including the replacement of the bearings.
Using our tracked Hydrodemolition robot, we removed 75mm of concrete over 132 square metres (9.9 cubic metres) on this concrete ramp to expose steel reinforcement and enable a new pour to provide a new finish. Works were completed remotely and on time.
RGL use UHP Water Blasting with Waste Vacuum Recovery to help restore Iconic Lighthouse Supply Ship whilst afloat.
RGL were recently called upon to provide their Ultra High-Pressure Water Jet Coatings Removal Service to assist with restoration of the Lighthouse Supply Ship Fingal. An Historic and interesting vessel built in 1923. The customer required the Vessel to be blasted and re-coated whilst afloat and therefore old coatings had to be captured as work
RGL cut through a 55mm steel plate and 200mm high strength grout in preparation for an offshore project running later this year. Using ultra high-pressure water we can cut through very thick materials at over 80m depth. RGL design and manufacture bespoke tooling and Remote Control Cutting Equipment. Using RGL’s remote control under water cutting
