Subsea Excavator

Heerema found that existing subsea excavation equipment could sometimes be time-consuming and prone to mechanical issues. 

A dredging tool with a difference

Developed in-house by Heerema's Decommissioning team the Subsea Excavator is designed to efficiently remove soil around jacket foundations to allow external leg and pile cutting activities using a diamond wire-cutting machine.

Internal Lifting Tool installation

Our installation method of using Internal Lifting Tools (ILTs) removes the need for offshore hook-on

  • Reduces fabrication costs of steel structures for rigging support
  • No engineering required from Heerema or fabricator for support frames
  • Using ILTs means no large space claims for topsides
  • Logistic costs of rigging removed
  • No need for storage and handling of rigging

Our quadlift installation method enables the installation or removal of extra-large topsides or jackets

  • Design freedom for all dimensions, weights, and center of gravity positions
  • Offshore installation for structures up to around 30,000 metric tons
  • Fabrication flexibility for clients to design fully integrated decks
  • Onshore commissioning for all hook up items for predictable offshore delivery
  • Transportation of fully-commissioned topside directly to installation site
  • Compatibility with any type of foundation
