SGS Solutions for Offshore Installations

DSC02012Making the impossible possible is just what we do each and every day at Subsea Global Solutions.  Thinking about how to develop innovative solutions requires us to work professionally in and out of the water.  During the past months, Subsea Global Solutions has been very busy supporting Offshore installations around the world.

Our services have included technical in-situ repairs of Thrusters, the exchange of thrusters as well as the execution of shell plate repairs to vessel hull’s in remote locations around the world.  In-Water Surveys and maintenance services including Hull Cleaning have been performed as well to the highest standards.  Due to the high value of Offshore vessels, any off-hire time or delays coming on hire are a big deal.  This requires unique and thorough repair procedures and time lines to be developed so that any maintenance or repairs performed have minimal or NO impact on operations.

Demountable Azimuthing thrusterEfficiently exchanging azimuthing thrusters requires coordination, good communication and a detailed plan.  Being Driven in Everything we do, Subsea Global Solutions created a precise plan for the exchange of azimuthing thrusters in-shore utilizing rig mounted cranes and other equipment.  By working closely with the client and manufacturer of the azimuthing thruster, Subsea Global Solutions effectively changed one thruster every 12 hours.  Focusing on Safety everyday ensures that everyone completes the job just like they started.  An incident free service equates to a happy client!
