Subsea Global Solutions was the resource hired to develop an innovative solution for the extraction of retractable azimuthing thrusters in a VERY shall environment. This project required several phases using a purpose designed and built hydraulic jacking system to demount and exchange these thrusters. The Azimuthing thrusters were the propulsion system on a specialty vessel which were not originally designed for underwater demounting. Due to the strategic nature of this vessel and its home port location a unique solution was required.
Teams from our SGS East and West Coast offices participated in this ground breaking azimuthing thruster exchange with the Original Equipment Manufacturer. Since this thruster was not designed for underwater demounting and the location was sensitive and shallow, the innovative tension leg track system was employed in this case to demount the lower gear boxes for overhaul and repair.
