The ROV (remotely operated vehicle) Diamond Wire Saw line was designed to address economical efficiencies and advantages while focusing on personnel and environmental safety when cutting equipment for deep-water abandonment operations. Creative solutions often come from creative equipment, and the ROV Diamond Wire Saw offers operators and contractors the ability to keep divers out of the water, maintain controllable and precise cuts, and operate at a ROV capable subsea weights. When considering a ROV-Operable saw, there are several considerations and levels of involvement that need to be evaluated to determine the scenario for subsea operation. Previous Slide Next Slide Close Gallery Example scenarios for ROV application: Scenario 1 ROV Diamond Wire Saw is deployed on a winch or crane line and operated by surface power. An ROV is used to position the saw at the cut location. Requirements: ROV handles may be required for the manipulator to grab. Scenario 2 Saw is deployed on a winch or crane line, but is positioned and powered by the ROV. The acting saw and ROV are mated on the surface by hard plumbing hydraulic hoses. Requirements: ROV handles may be required for the manipulator to grab. Scenario 3 ROV Diamond Wire Saw is deployed on a winch or crane line, but is positioned and powered by the ROV. Mating is to be completed diver-less and subsea. Requirements: in addition to the handles, an interface panel with hot stab connections would be required. If the stabs are to be installed below 600FSW, a compensator would need to be added to the interface panel to equalize internal and external pressures. Mactech offers a compensated interface panel. The interface panels can be custom-designed to fit to a specific ROV model and hot stab requirements. Scenario 4 The ROV needs to freely “fly” the saw around while disconnected from the winch line. Requirements: a buoyancy package is added to the saw to reduce its wet weight to something manageable for the ROV.
